Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a movie that shows us that the silence between two people can be more dramatic than 100 pages of dialogue."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"These three adults are all sick puppies. But neither the actors nor their director has created any reason for one to care."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"This could be a regretful remembrance of things past on the part of "Bergman" or it could be a pure fiction torn from the ether."
‑ Keith Uhlich, House Next Door
"Slow, but involving Ullman-Bergman collaboration."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The then over-amplification of psychiatric-like meetings and counseling and the trivial and pedestrian matter of the affair are drowned in a mawkish, morose and unendurable pacing."
‑ Greg Muskewitz,
"Bergman has been far better at working out these themes than anything in Faithless would suggest."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"A powerful movie, with emotional rawness and honesty that have been hallmarks of Bergman's work as much as his incredible egocentricity."
‑ Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle
"While not to everyone's taste, the technical and narrative complexity alone are to be applauded - the film looks gorgeous, and the film is both literate and witty."
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"Faithless is a journey worth taking, but it's best to travel alone."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"Henriksson, Hanzon and Josephson are fine as well, but the film belongs to Endre and Gylemo."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
"Bergman has reached for a woman's insight his whole career. Ullmann completes this for him."
‑ F.X. Feeney, L.A. Weekly
"Faithless is talky but very tight, and that cohesion relies on the bond between actors who aren't afraid to expose the depths of their characters."
‑ , Dallas Morning News
"Faithless comes with a pedigree that's hard to beat."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"It's a provocative, deeply detailed film, finely crafted both in the studio and in the editing room by Ullman."
‑ Rich Cline, Film Threat
"No longer seeking God and Truth, Bergman now searches for the more attainable goals of forgiveness and redemption."
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
