Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A riveting haunting chronicle of a young mother who's lost her baby (a splendid Radha Mitchell), the film lacks sharp narrative but has emotional immediacy and intensity and displays the voice of a gifted director, Marc Forster, a major talent to watch"
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"The subject matter is queasy, but Radha Mitchell ... is pitch perfect as Angie."
‑ Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
"Suspenseful and satirical, it approaches a modern day suburban nightmare."
‑ Mark Sells, Oregon Herald
"Moving down the list: Suburban dread? Check. Social statement about medical incompetence? Check. Shot on hand-held digital video? Check."
‑ Jeremiah Kipp, Matinee Magazine
"A great example with which to counter the prevailing argument that 'indie cinema' is dead."
‑ Rod Armstrong, Reel.com
"Everything Put Together takes a couple of curious turns that you will either applaud or hiss at, depending on the type of film you are looking for."
‑ , Chicago Tribune
"Despite an evocatively dark-toned DV atmosphere, is too responsible to erupt into the kind of operatic maternal horror it keeps threatening the audience with."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"While pockmarked by some flaws and blemishes, it remains an intriguing effort, marking the debut of a young director worth keeping an eye on."
‑ Dan Jardine, Apollo Guide
"With Mitchell's stunning performances at the center...a small picture that packs a major wallop."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"The good artistic qualities of "Everything Put Together" far outweigh the poor technical aspects of the film."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Aims for genuine discomfort, and it hits the mark with intelligence and style."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"[Foster] shoots this rather grim film like a pretentious horror flick."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"It may be a decent reflection of the shallowness of our society, and the unwillingness of many to get involved when they're most needed, but it didn't evoke any emotional reaction from me...just the feeling that I'd been robbed of my time."
‑ John Venable, Supercala.com
"Everything Put Together spirals off into some weird Twilight Zone where nothing makes any emotional sense."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
""Everything Put Together" does put everything back together in the end, and manages to horrify us in the process."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
