Movie Reviews

The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 9/10 by David Gilmour It is also extremely well-written in the fearless way of a smarty pants on a roll in the university cafeteria.
L.A. Weekly - 8/10 by Ella Taylor This is a very funny film about a creepy, excruciatingly lonely world.
The New York Times - 8/10 by Stephen Holden An obscene, misanthropic go-for-broke satire, Pretty Persuasion is so gleefully nasty that the fact that it was even made and released is astonishing. Much of it is also extremely funny.
Portland Oregonian - 7/10 by Shawn Levy There is such a thoroughgoing nastiness to the plot and dialogue that the film almost achieves a level of buoyancy.
Los Angeles Times - 7/10 by Carina Chocano It's too bad that the satire is not more pointed, because Pretty Persuasion is outrageously funny in short blasts, mainly thanks to James Woods at his most gleefully depraved.
The New Yorker - 7/10 by David Denby The comedy is brutal and paper thin, but that is less bothersome than the ending of the movie, which abruptly changes its tone.
Empire - 6/10 by Dan Jolin A teenie "To Die For" whose flaws are superceded by a complex, compelling turn from Evan Rachel Wood.
The A.V. Club - 6/10 by Nathan Rabin In a star-making performance, Evan Rachel Wood stars as essentially a younger version of Nicole Kidman's media-age femme fatale from "To Die For," an aspiring 15-year-old actress who hides a sharp, calculating mind behind a façade of vapid, chattering self-absorption.
Boston Globe - 5/10 by Janice Page Isn't so much awful as it is self-conscious, overdone, shallow, and just not up to the level of its star.
ReelViews - 5/10 by James Berardinelli Pretty Persuasion reminds me of a half-hour TV series that has a great pilot episode, then falls apart in subsequent installments. Movies need to grow and change to keep things interesting; this one is stagnant.
Chicago Reader - 5/10 by Jonathan Rosenbaum Tries to be an audacious, irreverent satire about youth culture like "Lord Love a Duck," but most of the laughs get strangled at birth by the uncertainty of Siega's tone.
Wall Street Journal - 5/10 by Joanne Kaufman Ms. Wood, who made a potent impression two years ago as a naïve adolescent led astray by a sophisticated and psychotic classmate in "Thirteen," has the whip hand this time around -- and she's wonderfully persuasive. She needs a movie to match.
