      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Zeros and Ones is poorly lit and beset by narrative chaos, but Ethan Hawke's passionate performance is a solid fit for Abel Ferrara's intriguingly idiosyncratic storytelling.

      Audience Member I began wide awake and optimistic. I dozed mid way, slapped myself awake and back tracked but clarity and light, especially light, never came. I could feel my brain curdling and couldn't make sense of it. I had to find something mindless, bright, with plenty of light. So no I don't recommend it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/20/24 Full Review Mike B No action. Dark all the time, saving energy use? No dislogue. Waste of time watching this. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/24 Full Review Jeanette H Horrible! Didn't understand anything from start to finish! Very hard to follow! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/24/23 Full Review Dan K Zeros and Ones is the Title and also my Review Score. Discipline, Extreme Discipline, Extreme Professional Discipline. That is what it took on my part to make it through this movie. The entire movie is dark, apply both meanings of dark. Imagine an Editor at the studio. Imagine 3 files all arrive for editing simultaneously, but all 3 labels fall off. One file is for a psychological thriller movie, filmed at night. One file is an 8-minute short about sex and drugs, filmed at night. And the last file is from a teenage American tourist walking around Rome at night, occasionally with the lens cap on or partially on. The editor thinks they are for the same movie and does their best to put them together. Now Imagine it's the first day on the job for the editor. Now imagine that the Editor is visually impaired. Now imagine the Editors new job with the studio is as an Accountant, but they read the room number wrong and walk into the editing room, and figures what the hell, I'll give this editing a go. If you start watching it, which I do NOT recommend you will see what I mean about my extreme professional discipline because I made it all the way to the end. Often when watching slow to start, bizarre movies they tie up loose ends or add a satisfying twist. Nope, not with this movie. It starts slow, the middle is slow, and the ending is slow, and nothing is tied up or satisfying. The only reason you know the movie ended is because the credits start. Then Ethan Hawke comes on as Ethan Hawke to tell you the movie is over. One positive thing I can think of, is that this movie will give hope to screenwriters everywhere, that they can make a movie and it could be shown on Amazon Prime. Midwest Movie Man Dan Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review Perry M Christianophobia is constantly at work. Always dark video that makes a hectic movie that is hard to follow on top of the insulting comments. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/13/23 Full Review Manuel S It feel I wasted 1 hour and 25 minutes of my life. This movie does not have any logic nor plot. Did not like dark scenes and-held shaky camera shots. Dialogs are not understandable and are loose ideas without connection. After watching this incomprehensible movie, I can not articulate a summary. It has more executive producers than actors. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Anton Bitel Little White Lies a prickly, difficult, even impenetrable mash-up of archetypes and ideas, all wrapped up in the nonsensical intrigues of genre cinema while reaching outward towards something bigger beyond. Apr 4, 2022 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian It’s minor work – but there is always something there, some restless wounded intelligence, a pugnacious worrying-away at something. Rated: 3/5 Mar 2, 2022 Full Review Max Maller Chicago Reader The paradoxical need for a would-be redeemer of humanity to know sin at first hand animates the film all the way down, from Hawke's passionate performance on through to the kinetics of Ferrara and Williams's seedy roving camera. Nov 24, 2021 Full Review D.M. Palmer Vague Visages An atmospheric but disjointed no-budget thriller. The war thriller is pretty underwhelming fare, but its mere existence attests to the tenacity of its creator. Nov 9, 2023 Full Review Pablo O. Scholz Clarín Though ideas abound in the film, they lack a connective tissue... [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/4 Apr 24, 2023 Full Review Juan Pablo Russo EscribiendoCine Zeros and Ones is difficult to decipher; the film's narrative logic seems to emerge from the music that remains constant from beginning to end.
