News & Interviews for Bloodline
Critic Reviews for Bloodline
As a stressed-out high school guidance counselor who helps his students by murdering their abusive relatives, Scott walks a fine line between sympathetic and sinister, in a film that never really finds its purpose.
A character study descends into a generic crime novel, complete with a final twist that simply isn't believable.
It counts too heavily on the shock value of familiar ideas the script doesn't lift above contrivance, and which his direction treats with a deadpan restraint that doesn't fully pay off.
Bloodline gives its characters just enough interiority to probe at the idea that parenthood's 'love and total panic at the same time' can push someone toward murderous madness.
By no means a perfect film... but it's a big swing and even though it doesn't always connect, I admire when a filmmaker tries for one.
