long_way_downReviews for this film from our members:

  • José Arce @ [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Pascal Chaumeil sigue abriendo zanja internacional en su trabajo con esta floja adaptación de la novela de Nick Hornby que sacrifica su mordacidad para abrirse a un discurso más bien meloso.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: A suicide-club meet-cute? It shouldn’t work, but it does, as wonderfully sardonic British humor and as a reminder that you’re not alone in being messed up in this insane world.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Based on one of Nick Hornby’s more forgettable novels, four people happen to show up at the same time and same place to commit suicide. More lackluster comedy than drama, these shallow, one-dimensional characters are tough to care about.
  • Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
    • Excerpt: This disappointing adaptation of the novel by Nick Hornby falls with a splat.
  • Jason Pirodsky @
    • Excerpt: Shamelessly cloying, so misguided and vacuous it made me want to scream, A Long Way Down is an unusually bad test of your patience that is bound to induce squirms.
