Reviews: The Good Doctor (2012)

Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Suspenseful and sinister, making one wary of checking into a hospital.
  • Glenn Lovell @ CinemaDope.com
    • Excerpt: … a tale of quiet obsession … one of those queasy little thrillers, like ‘One-Hour Photo,’ that’ll have you talking back to the screen, shouting, ‘No, he wouldn’t possibly do THAT!’ And then he does.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: Much like its protagonist, there’s something not quite right about The Good Doctor. It’s undoubtedly fascinating, as a young doctor makes a series of questionable moral decisions that lead to a variety of uncomfortable situations, but there’s no real internal life to the movie.
  • Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
    • Excerpt: “Kisses”-director Lance Daly’s latest feature “The Good Doctor” sees the filmmaker stepping away from the street-level verité of his impressive debut and crafting a tense, philosophically complex drama set in a California hospital. Orlando Bloom stars as a first-year resident walking an ethical tightrope and eventually falling off, jeopardizing the health of a teenaged girl (Riley Keough) he has become obsessed with.
  • Cole Smithey @ ColeSmithey.com
    • Excerpt: “The Good Doctor” is a seriously creepy Euro-styled thriller. Regardless of their position on Obamacare, no one who sees this movie will feel any better about being a hospital patient.
  • [New – 2/7] | James Wegg @ JWR
    • Excerpt: Respect at all costs
