What to Know

Critics Consensus

A case study in less-is-more filmmaking, Coherence serves as a compelling low-budget calling card for debuting writer-director James Ward Byrkit.

Samuel B. Prime Slant Magazine Coherence was a highlight. A deceptively simple film made with minimal cast, crew, and budget, it boasts more than enough sheer imagination to tip the scale in its favor. Sep 24, 2019 Full Review Mark Kermode Observer (UK) Considering how much of the film consists of a single group of people becoming increasingly unhinged in a suburban living room, it's impressive how effectively Byrkit manages to suggest multiple realities and ominous other worlds. Rated: 3/5 Feb 15, 2015 Full Review Geoffrey Macnab Independent (UK) One of its strengths is the attention it pays to character. Scrape away the sci-fi trappings and this emerges as a caustic, closely observed drama about some narcissistic California types with obvious tensions in their lives. Rated: 4/5 Feb 13, 2015 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh Its ambitions are admirable, but the actual concepts are too convoluted and don't quite live up to the potential of the various themes it juggles. Rated: 3/5 Sep 20, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Is anything but coherent. Rated: B+ Sep 14, 2023 Full Review Jennifer Bisset CNET Even more unsettling because of its grounded setting, Coherence is a true indie gem. Mar 21, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Yasmina T an absolute classic. easily my favorite psychological thriller. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/25/24 Full Review Alexis J Was well impressed first time round when watched during covid, something chimed with me... Second time and the acting does grate a little however, with such a frenetic timeline it doesn’t actually take from the narrative; it aids it. Could’ve easily worked as a found footage film but I’m glad they didn’t go in that direction. Love the simplicity, love the bigger picture. Tis good. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/10/24 Full Review Horror fan 4 What a great science fiction psychological thriller. Loved the story and character's. One of the best of 2014. Tim Treakle Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/08/24 Full Review Aine T Excellent. Simple yet so effective. Stayed with me long after watching. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/30/24 Full Review D R Coherence is a low budget, FANTASTIC film. Coherence is the type of film that you discover and realize more about the story with multiple viewings. It's the film I recommend most to friends. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/28/24 Full Review Dani G Interesting little film about space-time, paradox and the multiverse.... way before the multiverse was a thing in movies Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/27/24 Full Review Read all reviews
