Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A fine film of few words and very little motion."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Slyly appealing."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The filmmakers are incredibly adept at relaying so very much almost imperceptibly."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"The film's measured pace may put off impatient viewers, but the brilliantly underplayed ending is worth the wait."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A deadpan comedy shot through with a vein of despair, the Uruguayan film Whisky is a pint-size pleasure."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"directors Stoll and Rebella have taken a potentially farcical triangle and built from it a bleak meditation on twilit lives and lost opportunities."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"Bonedry but deeply involving film about marginal characters in Montevideo, Uruguay"
‑ Louis Proyect, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"This is a truly great film."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"With its intentional pacing and spare but precise dialogue, Whisky works up a unique mood that's languorous yet exhilarating."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"This low-key tale, by sophomore Uruguayan filmmakers Juan Pablo Rebella and Pablo Stoll, takes its wry look at the lives of three average people with a straight face."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Takes a wry and observant look at human interaction. And along the way it subtly pokes fun at the machismo in Latino society."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Whisky es la confirmación de que el cine uruguayo puede dejar de soñar en hacer, algún día, una gran película, porque ya la ha hecho."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
