      Joe Leydon Variety Less a conventional whodunit than a trenchant psychological study, with an arresting lead performance by JR Bourne. Mar 31, 2006 Full Review Peter Howell Toronto Star Without making its intentions explicit or resorting to extremes, it presents a devastating portrait of the hazards of modern living, where the relentless quest for success and wealth can push the psyche over the edge. Rated: 3/4 Mar 31, 2006 Full Review Jason Anderson Globe and Mail A smart and steely first feature by Calgary filmmaker David Christensen. Rated: 3/4 Mar 31, 2006 Full Review Steve Rhodes Internet Reviews Underwritten and underacted, the movie drags from one long scene to the next. Since the characters all suffer from repressed emotions, we never come to care about any of them. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 14, 2006 Full Review Louis B. Hobson Jam! Movies It's Bourne's subtle and nuanced performance, and not the veiled whodunit nature of the plot that makes Six Figures compelling. Rated: 3/5 Mar 31, 2006 Full Review Liz Braun Jam! Movies Neither a thriller nor a whodunit, the story is character-driven, clever and creepy. Rated: 2.5/5 Mar 31, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Not a bad contribution to Canadian cinema by a Calgary filmmaker. It goes to prove that even with a limited budget, you can produce something with true suspense. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member it was decent for a low budget canadian film. left more questions than answers at the end. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Although set at a very slow pace this movie does take an interesting look at domestic life during times of crisis. The most resounding of which is the strength of our belief in one another. Christensen's movie can be seen as a contridiction to the age old saying "blood is thicker than water". The last sceen of this movie casts serious doubt in the viewer and is (for more than one reason) probably this best of the film. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Six Figures is a low-budget movie set in Calgary. A couple in their mid-thirties with two small children want nothing more than to be a happy family with their own house. However, the husband played by JR Bourne, has just had his probation at work extended and is advised by his boss not to buy a house (hint, hint). His wife, played by Caroline Cave, is at work one Saturday (she works in a museum and is getting artifacts ready for shipping) has a fight with her husband over him looking after the kids so she can work. While alone, someone comes up behind her and strikes her with a hammer which leaves her seriously injured. Did her husband do it? It's really left up to the viewer to decide. I thought although this movie is very slow at times (especially at the beginning, as I almost turned it off) the acting was wonderful. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member good stuff = great character studies; story; assumes the viewers are intelligent; title bad stuff = low budget means no advertising notes: kept me thinking because the answers weren't written in neon letters - worth watching just for that. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This probably isn't the most memorable film, but good acting on the part of much of the cast, as well as the subtle nature of the plot make it worth watching. In many ways, "Six Figures" is a 'typical' English-Canadian film, in terms of the restrained and low-key nature of the drama that unfolds. There is nothing over the top here, no melodramatics, few suspense filled moments and no tear-jerking scenes. All you get is the story of a young middle-class family from Saskatchewan that relocates to booming Alberta, but gets caught up in some trying events.
