Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Samantha Lang's Australian rural gothic, which premiered in the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, offers a few twists but id ultimately frustrating and pretentious due to Laura Jones' enigmatic and undernourished script."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The Well wins points for its creative use of filters and silence... but those looking for a real creepshow will probably be left wanting."
‑ Christopher Null,
"This sublimely creepy, low-key film is not for all tastes. But The Well casts a haunting spell,"
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
"Obviously, this is a must see for fans of Welles, but any film buff would certainly dig this doc."
‑ Jon Popick, Planet Sick-Boy
"This unconventional and macabre Australian film is an exploration of yearning and the always fascinating subject of relationships between women."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A tight, claustrophobic psychological thriller from Down Under."
‑ Brian Juergens, Freeze Dried Movies
"Despite a deliberate paced and occasional pretentions, this is an effective psychological thriller that studies sexual repression."
‑ Dan Jardine, Daily-Reviews
