      Pete Vonder Haar Village Voice The guy fancies himself a hero, when in reality he's the person constantly thinking of witty comebacks after the fact. Dec 6, 2013 Full Review Susan Wloszczyna RogerEbert.com A creepy and deliberately paced thriller that is effective in its unpleasantness ... Rated: 2/4 Dec 6, 2013 Full Review Nick Schager The Dissolve Crave is nothing but empty movie-shout-out posturing. Rated: 1/5 Dec 4, 2013 Full Review Kip Mooney College Movie Review An ugly, misogynistic, grim little movie. Rated: F Sep 17, 2021 Full Review Sarah Gopaul Digital Journal The back-and-forth keeps the movie interesting, requiring the viewer to pay attention to the details while being cathartically entertained by Aiden's responses. Oct 20, 2018 Full Review Pat Padua Spectrum Culture A weak script, full of stupid people doing stupid things. Rated: 1.5/5 Aug 31, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Slow burning film, lots of back and forth seems pointless at times. But gave it 2 and a half stars since I like vigilante-type find and for decent acting. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member reminded me of the superior 'nightcrawler' than this Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the most underrated movies of all time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member In many ways, this movie had a lot of potential, but I think the character did and said some out of character things which stretched from how he was portrayed. I also think the ending left something to be desired. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member What we crave is a better movie! The previews set this thing up to look like a film version of Dexter, but that couldn't be further from the truth. The story follows a crime scene photographer who had enough of the injustice of the world and the horrible things he sees. He fantasizes about become a vigilantly and doing the things the police can't do, but there's a problem. He doesn't have any balls. The story presented in the previews and on the back of the box is just a description of the back story. The actual film centers around a love story, that doesn't exist. Photographer Aiden (Josh Lawson) is having sex with his neighbor Virginia (Emma Lung) who is half his age. Aiden believes he's fallen in love and obsesses over Virginia, but all she sees him as is a friend with benefits. Josh Lawson stars and he was actually pretty good, but what's the point of being good in a film that doesn't make any sense. Lines come out of nowhere and entire scenes occur that leave the audience wondering if it's really happening or just another of Aiden's fantasies. Perhaps, the worst part of this film is the narration. While Lawson does give a good performance, his character narrates his thoughts throughout the film, a jumbled mess of ridiculousness that gets old by the 30 minute mark. While there are a couple of interesting scenes, a solid performance by the lead, and one of my favorite actors, Edward Furlong, Crave is just one big mess of confusion that is most definitely not worth your time. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantasist movie that is more deviant than surreal in its many alternative fantasy depictions of crime in big city America. It's not too pleasing though. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
