Reviews: Coherence (2014)

coherenceReviews for this film from our members:

  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Joya de culto instantánea que marca el interesantísimo debut tras las cámaras de James Ward Byrkit. Una ciencia-ficción maquiavélica e hipnótica, interesante y atrapante a partes iguales. Cuando llega el cometa Miller, llega el terror.
  • Chris Barsanti @ Film Journal International
    • Excerpt: Cracking good “Twilight Zone” riff turns a yuppie dinner party into an inside-out exercise in paranoia and relationship physics after a passing comet knocks out the power, and maybe more besides.
  • Joshua Brunsting @ The CriterionCast
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: In ‘Coherence’, all logic is thrown out the window as a comet passing overhead causes a strange things to happen during an already somewhat uncomfortable dinner party.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Strangely subtle, supernatural mindbender….
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Deploys twisty sci-fi concepts to warp the almost-clichéd dinner-party soap opera into a horror story of the human condition in the face of quantum philosophy.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Proving that limited resources does not mean limited invention, “Coherence” is a rule-breaking experiment gone right. It achieves more than some movies with overpaid stars and inconceivable nine-figure budgets.
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Sem muitos fundos mas com muita criatividade, James Ward criou um thriller sci-fi bem interessante.
  • [New – 7/2/15] | Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Vendo o filme estão a arriscar o vosso conforto existencial. Um bom trabalho de James Ward Byrkit que conseguiu fazer algo partindo de uma premissa muito simples e nos engana com uma sinopse ambígua para que não fujamos de um filme exigente.
  • Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies
    • Excerpt: It’s exciting both as a chilling peek into the dark shadows of alternate realities, and as an example of how resourceful filmmakers can produce thrilling effects using nothing more expensive than their own brains.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: A ‘Twilight Zone’ dinner party whose guests frankly wear out their welcome.
  • Ron Wilkinson @ ItsJustMovies.com
    • Excerpt: Flighty but fun romp in a gravitation field built for eight.
