Critic Reviews of "The Two Faces Of January"Chicago ReaderDecember 11, 2014
[Hossein Amini's] polished storytelling carries this along, generally compensating for the mundane visuals and the actors' skilled but unmoored performances.Arizona RepublicOctober 16, 2014
At a certain point, it's akin to reading a mediocre murder mystery. You finish it because you're too far in to quit, as opposed to actually caring how things wrap up.GrantlandOctober 10, 2014
What the movie lacks in suspense, it could make up for with erotic tension. That's missing, too.Philadelphia InquirerOctober 10, 2014
Everything about The Two Faces of January is right, even as the events it describes - a couple's idyllic Grecian holiday, a charming American's adventures abroad - go terribly wrong.Boston GlobeOctober 09, 2014
The movie never reaches a boil. Instead, it simmers and simmers until you're suddenly shocked at the hot water you're in.Seattle TimesOctober 09, 2014
Things get awfully twisted under that hot Mediterranean sun.New Zealand HeraldJune 13, 2016
It's a classy looking movie for sure, and as pleasant a travelogue as Ripley was in its day. But Highsmith's psychological edge is absent for much of this and its shade of noir has suffered a serious bleaching in all that Mediterranean sun.Movie ChambersJanuary 13, 2015
A handsome thriller with plot twists that don't always make sense, "The Two Faces of January," moves slowly, but ultimately entertains.Antagony & EcstasyJanuary 04, 2015
A perfectly ordinary, unexceptionally satisfactory film... does a fine job with the mechanics of the plot, but it whiffs a bit on the characters.Laramie Movie ScopeJanuary 01, 2015
This is a well-written and well-acted movie. The relationships in the triangle at the center of the film are not easily made convincing, but excellent acting makes it work. This is a very solid thriller with a lot of compelling emotional complexity.RedEyeDecember 11, 2014
Rather than rise, this story cools off, fading away into unconvincing, accidental tragedy and an attempted emotional coda that feels more stapled on than woven in.NewcityDecember 09, 2014
Despite admirable moment-to-moment feats of actorly legerdemain from the primary and secondary cast alike, there's a deadly lack of heat. The costumes sing, the cigarettes fume. The simmer satisfies but never earns the tale's godless gloom.
