Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ultimately, this two-hander feels limited in scale, but frisky and diverting while it's on."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Interview feels more like a lab experiment/tribute than a committed, personal drama, leaving us with the sense that Buscemi wanted to feel more connected to this material than he actually did."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"The resulting film is a boring hour-and-a-half of watching two immature adults sink down to the Lord of the Flies lowest for no reason and hurl bile and vitriol at each other."
‑ Heather Huntington, ReelzChannel.com
"Interview comes across more like an acting exercise than a workable story."
‑ David Cornelius, DVDTalk.com
"Interview is well-made but depends almost entirely on its acting. Neither of the two principals let it down, even when the screenplay isn't quite as sharp as it could have been."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"A mixed bag of realism and arch, dramatic exaggeration."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Buscemi's film conveys the spirit of its source material but doesn't make a satisfying transmogrification out of its homage."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"The movie really started off on a good note, but then it just got repetitive."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"I can't get on the Sienna Miller bandwagon. I can damn with faint praise: she's perfectly competent as an actor -- but that's it."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Sienna Miller as an airhead celeb more famous for her sex life than her movies? Quite a stretch for the British actress."
‑ Neil Smith, thelondonpaper
"This movie keeps falling out of rhythm just when it should be picking up pace. It's a fitful piece of wrong beginnings and false ends."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Stick with it for Miller's gutsy tour de force and the kick of watching Buscemi, as actor and filmmaker, turn an experiment into a mesmerizing battle of wills."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"From its opening frame to its final revelation, Interview hums with life."
‑ Matt McKillop, Filmcritic.com
"The wonderful thing about Interview is that we have no idea where it is going to lead. It's honest, conflicted and surprising, as journalist and actress battle words and emotions in a potent drama that takes us to unexpected places"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"It pretends to be about the games of deceit that go on between men and women, but it's really just a squib on the culture of celebrity, and the cynical conclusion that's meant to pull us up short is feeble and silly beyond patience."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
