  1. mpho3's rating of the film The Woodsman

    "TW does not try to force too much compassion on us or advance any plea on Walter's behalf apart from the recognition of his humanity. The movie, neither excusing nor exploiting him, instead regards him with wary, ambivalent curiosity, placing him at the center of a modest, frayed drama that feels both understated and generous."-- A.O. Scott, NYTimes 3.5 stars. Kudos to Kassell and Bacon for pursuing that balance.

  2. ......'s rating of the film The Woodsman

    Um "character development" um pouco forçado mas boas performances de Kevin Bacon e Mos Def.

  3. Brian O'blivion's rating of the film The Woodsman

    Somewhat brave attempt, but it all resolves a bit too neatly.

  4. Kieran Charnock's rating of the film The Woodsman

    Biased on this one. As I feel I inexplicably drawn to this exploration: What makes a monster? I love this film but I feel they could have explored the first half a lot more. Or perhaps they should have started halfway through. Beginning dragged. Middle fizzled nicely. Ending caught fire. Fuck yeah. Great film. Recommend to everyone. + Great performance by Mos Def.

  5. Tigrão's rating of the film The Woodsman

    Wonderful film and stunning performance for an extremely uncomfortable and taboo subject. "The Woodsman" is a film that should be seen.

  7. Roman Horner's rating of the film The Woodsman

    Does that count as an official reason to worship Kevin Bacon?

  8. Kays Vanderest's rating of the film The Woodsman

    Rewatched this day for the first time since my initial viewing in 2006. A truly powerful, effecting and uncomfortable film. Highly recommended.

  9. Steve Pulaski's rating of the film The Woodsman

    Stellar, unsung performance by Kevin Bacon. Disturbing story and taken in very good context. Made the pedophile a human being rather than a monster.

  10. Y . K . H's rating of the film The Woodsman

    +5 Points for Kevins acting. Terrific.

  11. Mugino's rating of the film The Woodsman

    The revelation in the park near the end may be improbable, but it's a heart-breaking moment of lucidity that made the film for me. Kevin Bacon's performance is tightly controlled yet so revealing and brave.

  12. JuanMiguel's rating of the film The Woodsman

  13. Tyler Aikens's rating of the film The Woodsman

    Severely underrated. I assume the fact that Kevin Bacon is in this is the reason it has been avoided.
