Consensus: The scrutinizing camera angles of Keane might at first feel too close for comfort, but this powerful portrait of a man distraught by the abduction of his child plumbs the depths of mental illness and the corners of fleabag hotels in an intimate and touching examination of the seedier side of life.

When it comes to an emotional payoff at the end, unlike most Hollywood films, it has earned it.

[Lewis] immerses himself so deeply in Keane's psyche and skin that you easily forget this is acting, not real life.

Only Kerrigan's previous Clean, Shaven surpasses Keane as a sympathetic study of a man unravelled.
