Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Creative people often mistakenly assume that the trials of their profession are compelling."
‑ Drew Hunt, Chicago Reader
"There is plenty of evidence that Webber has something significant to say, and the gifts with which to express himself. Once he's ready to commit fully to his own vision, there's no end to what he might accomplish."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Those willing to drift along with it will find a compelling character study about a man coming to terms with himself, his son, and the people who enter their lives."
‑ Jeremy Mathews, Paste Magazine
"Not sure if The End of Love's Mark Webber got that callback from Paul Thomas Anderson, but the Mark Webber who made The End of Love deserves to be getting a few."
‑ Erik Childress,
""The End of Love" is an exceptionally intimate, human-scaled picture. It's also quite a special piece of work."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Shot with tiny digital cameras to minimize the sense of intrusion, The End Of Love sometimes feels like a home movie, but that's also the source of its strength."
‑ Sam Adams, AV Club
"Single dad's struggles are poignant, somewhat mature."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"Mr. Webber, a skilled actor, has not devised a narrative with sufficient momentum or tension to sustain much interest."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"Mark Webber's "The End of Love" connects and lingers by making incredible effort seem natural."
‑ Charlie Schmidlin, Chicago Sun-Times
"Webber appears to be making an audition tape with his second directorial effort, using screen time to display a range of moods and dramatic encounters that could go on to secure future jobs for the actor."
