      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Wristcutters: A Love Story sounds like a normal enough indie flick. Boy meets girl. Boy gets separated from girl. Boy goes on a road trip with friends to find girl and gains a new perspective on life. Except everybody's dead.

      Hank Sartin Time Out Rated: 4/5 Nov 18, 2011 Full Review Amy Nicholson I.E. Weekly It misses the opportunity to examine why a community of people - each of whom has already given up on life - would band together to form a new society of desperate misfits. Rated: B- Feb 22, 2008 Full Review Derek Malcolm London Evening Standard It is a staggeringly awful road movie, not much enlivened by the presence of Tom Waits as a wizened participant. Rated: 1/5 Nov 23, 2007 Full Review Kathi Maio The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction Realistic other-worldness is a challenge, especially in a live action film...Wristcutters: A Love Story couldn't quite pull it off... Mar 4, 2020 Full Review Jeff Otto ReelzChannel.com Rated: 6/10 Feb 9, 2011 Full Review Ian Berriman SFX Magazine This road movie romcom won’t leave you reaching for the razor blades.

      Jerod S It's a suicide love affair. After he attempts to take his life, Fugit goes on a dreamscape where everyone is dead...even his love interest. Don't worry, though...after all the pretty lame dark humor, there's a bright ending. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 12/15/23 Full Review justin t Not the most amazing looking but it had a style that fitted the story perfectly. The sound design does a good enough job of complimenting the story which is fantastically well told. This really is the highlight of the film. It is intriguing and interesting. I liked the whole premise. Sometimes the pacing was a little uneven. I really connected with the quirkiness. It reminded me of A Life Less Ordinary (1997) but better. It's enjoyable and interesting but slightly uneven pacing. Melancholy in a good way. Recommended as it's a bit different. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A cute indie film with tons of faces you’ll recognize. And while it isn’t the best movie that any of them have been in, it’s a fun, quirky production that enjoys taking you through their world building with a bunch of zany characters. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/11/22 Full Review Audience Member I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this film. Weirdly entertaining. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Fancy seeing The Smiths in the soundtrack... Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member There’s a lot of questions to be asked but that ruins the entire premise so just have fun. This was very interesting and original 4.4 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/21 Full Review Read all reviews
