Consensus: Red Road director Andrea Arnold skillfully parses out just enough plot details at a time to keep the audience engrossed in this seductive thriller.

Unfortunately, its superb performances and assured camerawork are overwhelmed by dubious psychology and a clichéd climax.

A must for movie lovers who want to see how so much drama, mystery and emotion can be created from so little.

Dan Jardine

Despite some elemental flaws in logic and plausibility, this is a tense and potent film at times that hints at the sort of greatness that we can find to a greater degree in Ms. Arnold's other works, Wasp and Fish Tank.

Like the Peeping Tom-paranoia of similar recent films Disturbia and Civic Duty, this finely crafted debut feature by Scottish writer/director Andrea Arnold packs a wallop.

For a voyeuristic medium, this tale of a voyeur does a poor job of prying into its own protagonist's life.

Though it's paced as a thriller, the film ultimately emerges as a haunting exploration of how grief can weigh on us, and the depths to which it can drive us.

With assured performers, handheld cameras and natural lighting -- the ABCs of the Dogme method -- [Andrea] Arnold has given this ambitious undertaking a provocative start.
