Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Modest in means but rich in warmth, it's an eminently likeable film and all credit to Kerrigan for finding a new way of exploring the age-old story of dads and their boys."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"Justin Kerrigan's first feature since 1999's Human Traffic is based on his own relationship with his father; no wonder it's so harrowing and deeply felt."
‑ Philip Kemp, Total Film
"Intrigues but doesn't satisfy despite thoughtful performances from Carlyle and Fuller."
‑ Jamie Russell, Radio Times
"I Know You Know has a rough-edged charm that works surprisingly well, despite the occasional flaw. Worth seeing, especially for the performances by Carlyle and Fuller."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Kerrigan never quite gets the tone right and the film suffers from what looks like a lack of finance in certain areas."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"I'm not even sure it quite survives a calamitous opening half in which the script toils to prop up Charlie's increasingly ornate flights of fancy. But it is certainly ambitious and heartfelt, dappled with moments of ragged glory."
‑ Xan Brooks, Guardian
"It's a deeply personal tale defined by a sturdy turn from newcomer Fuller and Carlyle's compellingly unpredictable performance."
‑ Ross Bennett, Empire Magazine
"By dressing up his domestic tragedy as a boy's own adventure, Kerrigan somehow dilutes, rather than amplifies, the impact of both."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"With a strongly nostalgic tone, Kerrigan gives this subtly understated thriller a provocative emotional kick. Despite a slightly contrived script, solid performances make the film both haunting and thoughtful."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Fundamentally harmless, though it rather tramples on its own period authenticity -- why all the Steven Soderbergh-esque funk-scored heist sequences? You may be nonplussed."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"Kerrigan successfully captures a captivating father-son bond in an understated, but perfectly executed indie flick that never attempts to be more than the sum of its parts."
‑ Eileen Reslen, Sky Movies
