      Audience Member This is an intelligent adult thriller. Clever, engrossing, well paced, beautifully filmed, artfully crafted, and thoroughly entertaining! Every scene and every frame had purpose and meaning. The New England scenery is just downright gorgeous! The actors brought the characters to life and made them quite relateable. You either know, or are, one of these people, and, can easily identify with the emotions they are feeling, and the difficult choices that they are forced to make. I really enjoyed this movie. Don't miss an opportunity to see a film that challenges your beliefs, makes you question your values, and compliments your intelligence. Well worth the time and ticket! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member The stunning time-lapse shots of mountain ranges and misty rivers set just the right tone for this tense film - a beautiful-yet-creepy atmosphere that takes us from bucolic ideals - a kayak on a river, a farmhouse in a field - to nightmarish drives through dark woods on dirt roads. Well-cast and well-acted, these characters are familiar - Teddy is that creepy guy that we all knew in college, the friend-of-a-friend who just wouldn't go away. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member The juxtaposition of the gorgeous scenery and dark plot heightened my appreciation for "Brief Reunion." It reminded me of the best of Russian literature: the focus is not so much on the crime as on the psychological ramifications of our choices. Do we, in the end, achieve any expiation for our sins, or do we simply disappear? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member I really liked this movie. First of all, it's refreshing to see an Asian male lead (skillfully acted by Joel de la Fuente) in a role that doesn't necessarily have to be an Asian. In addition, the story is really gripping and I wished the movie was longer than 90 minutes. The New England scenery is gorgeous and beautiful to watch as well. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member What I liked best about this movie was that it was as enjoyable as any "guilty pleasure" movie I've seen in a while, as beautifully shot as an art house film, and gave us something to talk about afterwards. A welcome relief from the over-stimulating fare that seems to be populating theaters these days. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Farran Smith Nehme New York Post A movie like this should be a tightening noose as your anxiety for the main character keeps rising. Aaron is charmless, self-absorbed and perception-free. Rated: 2/4 Jan 18, 2013 Full Review Sheri Linden Los Angeles Times Efficiently told and features solid performances, but without the juicy character detail, vise-grip suspense or black comic intensity of its memorable forerunners, it unwinds as a boilerplate genre item. Rated: 2/5 Jan 17, 2013 Full Review Stephen Holden New York Times The juicy dramatic possibilities of buried secrets and lies and cybertrickery are left unexplored. The movie's shade of noir is a dull gray. Rated: 2/5 Jan 17, 2013 Full Review Brent Simon Shockya.com A solid, smartly wound little psychological drama that digs into some of the knotty qualities of mid-life adult relationships. Rated: B Apr 17, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews
