      Joe Lipsett Bloody Disgusting Faithfully Yours isn’t revolutionizing the subgenre, but solid direction, a strong lead performance, and a refreshing representation of society’s changing sexual norms makes this an entertaining and worthwhile take on the “woman in danger” film. Rated: 4/5 Oct 5, 2023 Full Review Barbara Shulgasser Common Sense Media The consequences of lying are emphasized but the pursuit of pleasure and control are far more fundamental and disturbing themes. May 23, 2023 Full Review John Serba Decider Van Duren makes a halfway decent attempt to build some paranoid suspense as Bodil sniffs out others’ secrets as she tries to conceal her own, but the endeavor is frustratingly generic, and increasingly absurd... May 18, 2023 Full Review Jason Flatt But Why Tho? A Geek Community Really there is little redeeming or worthwhile about Faithfully Yours. Just don’t watch it. Even by the time it gets to the end and two reasonable twists take place, it’s already far too late for them to redeem what is just entirely dull from the onset. Rated: 3/10 May 18, 2023 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation A subtly-acted slow-starter, with a fine, flashy finish, a “solid” genre piece that never quite crosses over into riveting. Rated: 2.5/4 May 17, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      John H The story follows a morally bankrupt person when her world is turned upside down. Her total lack of decency makes her unable to trust anyone or anything. Overall, the movie was decent, but the ending was 100% atrocious. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/17/24 Full Review Campbell L If the lead character, who is supposed to be a judge, will not mention a blood soaked suspect that they bumped into, nor the dog that was also presumably there and left footpronts at the scene of the crime when being interviewed by police then you dont need to watch this movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/24 Full Review Tjeerd S. R What a horrible movie. Plot didnt make sense at all. A lot of plot wholes left. And the ending was a joke. Acting didnt convince me at all. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review luca d It's a good movie, nothing more. The plot is something we see in other thriller movies as well, and it's not too hard to figure out the ending. I can suggest it if you don't have anything else to see. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 09/05/23 Full Review Paul W Faithfully Yours is the best Hitchcockian thriller that I have seen since Hitchcock died. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/09/23 Full Review Lee M Great Premise, Flawed Execution Faithfully Yours follows two middle-aged friends, Bodil (Bracha van Doesburgh) and Isabel (Elise Schaap) who use each other as alibis to sneak off and enjoy extramarital affairs. The film opens with Bodil and Isabel meeting up at a train station in the Netherlands to go on a weekend trip to Ostend, a Belgian seaside resort. They've agreed to use each other as alibis so that their husbands won't find out about their cheating. Isabel's hubby, a depressed, forlorn, very needy writer, has placed a tracker on her phone, so there's a lot of scheming to make sure he does not know where she's really going. As soon as they hit town they go their separate ways. Bodil, a family court judge and mom hooks up with a young, handsome professor from the local university who is an expert on — irony of ironies — lying. Fortyish Isabel puts on her glitter makeup goes to a sleazy nightclub where she does drugs, hands over a huge cash payment to an unidentified man, and makes out with a young woman. Later that night, Isabel goes missing. And that's when the elaborate planning and web of lies unravels. The next day Bodil discovers the scene of a violent, bloody struggle at her beach house. She reluctantly calls the police and then lies about pretty much everything else. But the Belgian police are not exactly Lieutenant Colombos. The two women detectives take a quite passive approach to their sleuthing. The attitude seems to be, "Yeah, sure that makes sense." In fact pretty much every character in this movie is a 1 on the 1 to 10 passive to aggressive scale. No one seems especially troubled by any startling reveal, or strange behavior. Bodil's hubby: Oh, you've had 10 or 12 lovers at the beach house? I'm down with that. I enjoy the videos. Just don't drift too far away from me. A huge Irish Wolfhound runs up to an elderly man almost knocking him over and puts his bloody paws all over the guy's white suit? Bodil just looks slightly quizzical and goes on her way. Isabel's husband tries to commit suicide by taking a barrel full of pills and is near death? Bodil's husband: let's not bother with emergency services. He'll be OK. Bodil discovers there has been a violent crime, maybe murder / hit job at her home? Oh, I'll just spend another few days here, alone. Maybe this passivity and blind acceptance of the outrageous is a Dutch / Belgian thing, but American audiences will find it hard to fathom. And in this era of culture wars, the disdain shown to men will be especially jarring. The two male leads are ineffectual beta-males in the extreme. The women, in their way, are the only competent ones. Add to that a number of implausibilities — e.g., the child having the password to his dad's computer which is loaded with disturbing material — and plot holes, then mix with a kettle full of red herrings, and you get a sadly disappointing movie. As for the ending, well, like the rest of the film, pretty far fetched. All wrapped up in a two minute conversation / exposition scene outside the beach house and then a ludicrous airport scene. I give it points for the premise, but negative points for execution. Hitchcock it is not. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 08/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews
