Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Rampling, to her credit, helps hold the nuthouse together."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"For all its ambition and richness of style, Signs & Wonders never shows us what's inside Alec."
‑ Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
"Abtruse, delicately constructed and thoughtful... an arty Euro-flick with an almost entirely emotional mystery and pay-off."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"Signs takes us into Alec's confused head, and, although it can be disturbing there, it's never dull."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"You're beginning to understand why Unger seems to be in such a daze: she's read the script."
‑ Steven Mazey, Ottawa Citizen
"Until it devolves into what seems like a quasi-surreal Fatal Attraction ... offers a stark, spooky portrait of family fracture and loss."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Danger: when your suspense film ends and you don't care who really did "it", whatever "it" is, you might want to rethink the plot."
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"Feels like a film that could have been shot by Nicolas Roeg."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"I hate to drag out that word again, but it's seriously needed here: pretentious."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"If you're looking for a unique, stimulating time at the movies, sign up here."
‑ , E! Online
"Has extraordinary depth and insight about the limitations and follies of human beings."
‑ Loren King, Boston Globe
"Underrated ..."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"There's a potentially good film struggling to get out of an overly self-conscious director's grip here."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"A textbook example of a pretentious art film."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
"Begins to wear thin after an hour."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
