Ratings & Reviews

  1. redux's rating of the film The Square

    A coenesque affair, built on the idea of a petty crime pinballing out of control. But the sarcasm is sensibly toned down to a more sympathetic effect. (And for that reason the baby in the car was unnecessary.) A rather good thriller. (3 ½)

  2. kopfkompass's rating of the film The Square

    A reality check performed on the saga of Bonnie & Clyde.

  3. CCLZA's rating of the film The Square

    It's merely OK. I also felt the whole movie was kind of unnecesary.

  4. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The Square

    A sharp neo-noir crime thriller is an impressive feature debut for director Nash Edgerton. Great with performances with a smartly-assembled script packed with solid twists and moral ambiguity, all told with a confidently subtly style. Fans of the genre should really seek this one out.

  5. mpho3's rating of the film The Square

    "In addition to its lived-in performances, sharp dialogue and elegant direction," notes the Washington Post's Dan Kois, "is the way it teases the audience. The screenplay carefully constructs a house of cards around its central couple, an increasingly desperate pair who just aren't cut out for the criminal life. The removal of but one card will cause [their] entire plan to collapse, but ... which card it will be?"

  6. Guillermo Padilla's rating of the film The Square

    El estilo me recordo a la joya Animal Kingdoom (por ser australiana, tal vez...) la intensidad de la pelicula va creciendo hasta convertirse en una extraña mezcla de humor negro y drama. Todo lo que puede salir mal, tiene que salir mal.

  7. Movie Blabber's rating of the film The Square

    It's a simple thriller, but the moments of violence really hit me. Edgerton seems to have a good grasp of what makes a crime thriller tick.

  8. Tigrão's rating of the film The Square

    Though a bit predictable, "The Square" remains a very strong thriller, with a gritty atmosphere and great direction. It's "Psycho" meets Clouzot's "Diaboliques". Great.

  9. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Square

    Every choice seems fairly reasonable (if not necessarily honorable) at the time but things spin slowly farther and farther out of control. Justly compared to the Cohen Brothers' thrillers. I'll be on the lookout for the Edgerton brothers' next film. The short film "Spider" which precedes "The Square" is a pretty near perfect short; a little morality fable about the unintended consequences of a practical joke.

  10. Cbarky99's rating of the film The Square

    Among other things, this is an excellent Christmas movie for folks who don't like Christmas movies.

  11. J. O.'s rating of the film The Square

    A dark, gritty, twisting story of betrayal, revenge, and panic. Great performances in what is yet another fantastic Australian film. I truly think that country's cinematic renaissance is in full effect. "The Square" was complex and surprising; it packs a punch.
