Critic Reviews for Gravesend

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

The lives of these four friends are lived at a monotonous level; they lack the words and perhaps the concepts for pastimes more challenging than drinking, smoking dope, holding aimless arguments and getting into meaningless fights.

For the most part, Gravesend is a rough-hewn, bilious, dead-real trip to Endsville. relieved occasionally by a desperate chuckle.

Not a great film, but it is impressively chilling.

March 25, 2005 | Rating: 3/4

Gravesend overcomes severe technical limitations with excellent performances, intuitive camera work, sharp dialog and energy to burn.

This bare-bones drama is already a success, putting Salvatore Stabile in fast company, at high speed.
