      22% 9 Reviews Tomatometer 32% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score The film is inspired by a true story set in 1964 in New York, where several neighbors witness the brutal murder and rape of Kitty Genovese and do not intervene. The film peeks into the lives of three disparate families, the lonely neighbor and the doorman. Viewers connect with the neighbors and understand their decisions not to act by following their day-to-day struggles. They deal with their personal lives the same way they deal with the murder -- if they don't talk about it, it didn't happen. Read More Read Less Watch on Peacock Stream Now

      Audience Member The entire story and point of the movie is lost in the disparate scenes. Broken families, gas masks, strange "could be a psychotic break" scenes, and Ouija boards...the whole point of the movie is lost in these cinematic parcels that have nothing to do with the real events. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member What? Who? This movie is more annoying than anything. If you wanna hear people counting endlessly and people doing basically nothing except living out a boring day, this is your movie. Some of the conversations are decent and the imagery is eerie as if it’s boiling down to something grande but nope... your left with nothing at all. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/22/18 Full Review don s An indie drama about a fascinating topic: how could 37 people witness the rape and murder of a woman in the streets of New York and not one lift a finger to help her? Especially since some of them knew her personally. This look at "The Bystander Effect," an actual psychological designation, is marred by uneven performances, a slow pace, and what feels like totally fictionalized rationalizations pertaining to motives not to get involved. We don't get to meet all 37, but the few stories that are developed are rather selfish and flimsy. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Tries too hard and fails. All evidence of grit and drama on the event or the bystanders and their lives within is washed away in ethereal nonsense. This reviewer usually loves lofty and bizarre, but without something inside it comes off as a failed art school film. 37 accomplishes only this. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Another whitewashed film. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Dark but gives a new and better explanation of the event. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online 37 is disturbing for its reported accuracy surrounding the actual death of Genovese, but Grasten doesn't present an effective narrative. It's a slow burn, leading up to a third act that is muffled and lacks power. Rated: D Mar 22, 2017 Full Review Andy Webster New York Times In the face of real-life tragedy, "37" only perpetuates a myth. Oct 6, 2016 Full Review John Anderson Wall Street Journal It is a haunting movie, one in its director's total control, full of disturbing ideas and no short amount of magic. Oct 6, 2016 Full Review Gary Garrison The Playlist Feels less interested in offering any commentary or adding any substance than in propagating the original myth. Rated: C- Oct 7, 2016 Full Review Maitland McDonagh Film Journal International The notorious 1964 New York City murder of Kitty Genovese is the springboard for this arty but tedious meditation on urban angst. Oct 6, 2016 Full Review Travis Hopson Punch Drunk Critics It's doubtful more than 37 people will have to bear witness to such a failure... Rated: 1/5 Oct 4, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
