Critic Reviews for The Passion of Darkly Noon

All Critics (8)

A portrait of mythic America that drips with an ambiguous super-realism like a Salvador Dalí painting. While it may not go down smooth, its erratic taste lingers - and it might require a feel-good cinematic chaser.

Here's another movie illustrating how the root of all evil can often be found in the midst of misguided religious zeal.

By the time you get to the giant glittering silver shoe floating in the river, you'll know whether The Passion of Darkly Noon is your kind of insanity.

April 29, 2009 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

An off-beat, haunting, overwrought fairy tale for adults.

Audience Reviews for The Passion of Darkly Noon


An interesting movie. Darkly is nursed to health by the hot Callie (Ashley Judd). When her boyfriend returns, Darkly is conflicted - he was raised by deeply religious parents vs his obsession for Callie. You get more and more uncomfortable as the movie advances to its inevitable conclusion. Mind you, I hate obscure stuff like the big shiny boot floating on a lake.
