Critic Reviews for Happy New Year, Colin Burstead

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (4)

Cuts like acid through the fatty, feel-good excess of the Christmas film canon.

Ben Wheatley strips things way back for his nerve-raddled family reunion comedy, and the result is one of his best, most fluid films.

Every minute of this film has something of interest, every frame is well composed. And yet I admit I found there was something a bit contrived and unreal about it, like an epic improv session.

Plenty of classy ingredients here, but Wheatley's tentative first foray into the realm of adult drama is not the heart-bruising emotional assault course it could have been.

The ensemble cast tackle [Ben] Wheatley's memorable dialogue with aplomb, while also selling the increasingly chaotic scenarios.

December 23, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Could either alienate general audiences expecting something a little more even or rope enthusiasts in with its natural, hand-held aesthetic.
