Critic Reviews for The Confession

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (3)

  • If, as directed by David Jones, The Confession is a bit sluggish, David Black's screenplay nevertheless pokes us in the eye with issues as sharp as spears...What this flawed but absorbing movie suggests is that all Sol Yurick's novels deserve a film.

  • As ótimas atuações são desperdiçadas por um roteiro medíocre com tendência à pregação.
