Critic Reviews



Based on 26 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
Entertainment Weekly
The depth of the story and the characters is awfully slight to bear the weight of such fancy editing. But the performances are crisp and in focus, with Cox in particular showing a photogenic feel for expressing grief.
Film Threat
Tries to be a lot of things within its 78 minute running time, succeeding marvelously at some while crashing and burning on others.
The A.V. Club
Feels more like a clever student short that got out of hand than the Kafka-esque nightmare that director Greg Harrison (Groove) likely intended.
In the same way that a crossword puzzle tickles the mind without asking to be taken as literature, November plays games for the sake of game-playing. It also has a pretentious streak.
Benjamin Brand's script never levels with a viewer.
Village Voice
Like a jigsaw that's more fun to assemble before you know how all the pieces fit, Greg Harrison's brain-teasing meta-thriller November is less compelling the more apparent its solution becomes.
L.A. Weekly
To their great credit, writer Benjamin Brand and director Greg Harrison weave these contradictory variations into an effective puzzle, if one that doesn't quite transcend being a puzzle - it never becomes a mystery, like, say, "Mulholland Drive," or even "The Sixth Sense."
Increasingly perplexing film, which is more concerned with being clever than satisfying.
New York Post
There's no real payoff - artistically or emotionally - in Gregory Harrison's gimmicky and tedious psychological thriller November, shot on ugly digital video.
Convoluted and unsatisfying psychological drama.
