Movie Reviews

The New Yorker - 10/10 by David DenbyIt's powerfully and richly imagined: a genre-busting movie that successfully combines the utmost in romanticism with the utmost in realism.
Empire - 10/10 by Kim NewmanHumane and harrowing, highly recommended. This one will stay with you.
Charlotte Observer - 10/10 by Lawrence ToppmanTo call it a masterpiece is premature: That's a title to be earned only in retrospect. But I've seen it twice now and can't imagine what I would change. It fits together tightly as a suspenseful puzzle, yet it's also emotionally rewarding and sardonically funny.
Tampa Bay Times - 10/10 by Steve PersallThe movie grabbed me and wouldn't let go during a bravura set piece at a soccer game when Campanella's camera glides into the stadium, finds Benjamin's face in the crowd and doesn't stop moving (with only a couple of edits) for six breathtaking minutes.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 10/10 by Rick GroenThe wonder is that the film balances its many genres, from the thorns of murder to the bloom of romance to the thickets of politics, with such easy grace.
Chicago Tribune - 10/10 by Michael PhillipsWhat are the odds that the year's most compelling mystery would end up hanging its hat on the year's richest love story
Chicago Reader - 10/10 by Andrea GronvallDirector Juan José Campanella weaves together two love stories--between the victim and her husband, and the investigator and his former boss (Soledad Villamil)--and creates some masterful set pieces; his breathless chase through a packed soccer stadium is a marvel of choreography and top-notch CGI.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger EbertJuan Jose Campanella is the writer-director, and here is a man who creates a complete, engrossing, lovingly crafted film. He is filled with his stories. The Secret in Their Eyes is a rebuke to formula screenplays. We grow to know the characters, and the story pays due respect to their complexities and needs.
NPR - 9/10 by Bob MondelloThe Secret in Their Eyes finds secrets everywhere -- even in what's driving Ben and Irene as they separately examine the decisions they made back in the 1970s. For both of them, as for their country, accurate remembrance of that period is crucial.
Orlando Sentinel - 9/10 by Roger MooreThere are people, powerful people, who don't want old cases dug up. It's a tribute to the story's construction that the mystery only deepens, the more Benjamin digs.
