Movie Reviews

Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Betsy Sharkey A little like guided meditation with suggestions floated, waiting, left untethered. It's up to you to distill meaning -- which will leave some convinced the director is merely self-indulgent, and others deeply satisfied.
Village Voice - 8/10 by J. Hoberman Like everything Jarmusch, The Limits of Control is calibrated for cool.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 8/10 by Steven Rea Almost absurdly quiet and observant, The Limits of Control is about the space between the action, the steps along the way.
The A.V. Club - 6/10 by Scott Tobias Too much of The Limits Of Control feels canned and airless, so stifled by Jarmusch's obsessions that it loses all sense of surprise.
Empire - 6/10 by Andrew Male Cool, handsome, self-assured... but, as the existentialists might say, what’s the bloody point?
The New York Times - 6/10 by Manohla Dargis A nondramatic work best appreciated as a pure image-and-sound event.
Rolling Stone - 5/10 by Peter Travers Even the great ones hit snags. With The Limits of Control, Jim Jarmsuch gets tangled up in his own deadpan.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 5/10 by Liam Lacey Only a few events happen in this minimalist film, and most of them keep getting repeated through most of its running time.
The New Yorker - 5/10 by Anthony Lane As it is, the movie's lethal climax, with its vague protest against corporate control--and hence in favor of art, music, drugs, or whatever--feels like a poor theft from a more conventional film.
The Hollywood Reporter - 5/10 by Michael Rechtshaffen Unfortunately, the whole seldom adds up to the sum of its illustrious parts, and Jarmusch's trademark deadpan quirks seem to have gotten lost in the translation.
ReelViews - 5/10 by James Berardinelli While The Limits of Control offers some picturesque photography and grist for thought, it is ultimately too much like The Emperor's New Clothes to warrant anything approaching enthusiasm. The message is banal and the means by which it is presented reeks of artifice and pretention.
USA Today - 4/10 by Claudia Puig It might be that Jarmusch (Broken Flowers) is experimenting with creating a pastiche of dreamlike sequences that audiences can interpret as they wish. Or it may be merely pretension and hubris that fuels such a stylized and insubstantial story.
