Critic Reviews of "Lonesome Jim"Time OutApril 11, 2008
Though this clash of picket-fenced, down-home values and big city oafishness was handled with a little more delicacy in 2005's superb 'Junebug', Buscemi's film has lots to say about this fruitful dynamic.Toronto StarMay 19, 2006
Manages to be bitter, dispiriting and utterly pointless all at once.Globe and MailMay 19, 2006
It all feels very slight.Orlando SentinelMay 12, 2006
Affleck plays this as a one-note turn, all dour. What a life-force like Anika would see in him is a mystery.Boston GlobeMay 05, 2006
The problem is that a little of this minimalist kitchen-sink farce goes a very long way, and after a while Lonesome Jim starts to dry up.Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionApril 20, 2006
A slight, but amusing and occasionally touching, dark comedy about depression and dysfunction that percolates with indie film hipness.ColeSmithey.comApril 20, 2009
"Lonesome Jim" is an earnest and modest 'little independent' movie that charms by way of its understated underachieving characters.Film4April 11, 2008
Minimalist, moody and morose, Lonesome Jim is a minor gem.Total FilmApril 11, 2008
The world would be a better place if Steve Buscemi made more movies.BBC.comApril 11, 2008
Steve Buscemi's third film as a director is a low key affair delivered with a wry sense of humour.Sky MoviesApril 11, 2008
It's poignant, quietly life-affirming little story that doesn't need to shout. Lonesome Jim's good company.
