Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Likeluy divide critics and viewers, this is a simpler and less layered film than other works from Egoyan, who seems unable to infuse the pyschological thriller with his characteristic humor and irony."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"[Egoyan's] still an arty hack in search of meaning."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"This movie sucked."
‑ Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel, 3BlackChicks Review
"Turns into a sort of poetry, flowing gently from one scene to the next."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"It took awhile to sink in, but I liked Felicia's Journey very much."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A strange but compelling tale about trust, pain, and the miraculous power of healing."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A deeply haunting film that only grows moreso upon reflection."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"It projects a coldly composed, alarming, yet singularly humorous quality that few thrillers even attempt."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Every time we think we know what's going to happen, the story spins off in a curious new direction..."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Dramatically inert."
‑ Scott Von Doviak, culturevulture.net
"What fails this otherwise competent and worthwhile production, is that everything falls too easily into psychological place by the film's end."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Felicia's Journey is the work of a virtuoso."
‑ Maria Garcia, Film Journal International
