Critic Consensus: It's thoughtful and well-acted, but Submission falls frustratingly short in its attempt to offer insightful commentary through its timely premise.

Critic Reviews for Submission
A seriously considered film brimming with ideas worth examining.
Tucci and Timlin are both quite good in their roles, and writer-director Richard Levine (adapting Francine Prose's 2000 novel "Blue Angel") does an excellent job of slowly escalating the pair's relationship.
Honoring the primacy of language for his characters, Levine deftly reveals the ways they wield it to seduce, attack, manipulate, repress and, occasionally, to communicate.
For a movie addressing themes singularly suited to this moment, it's all the more disappointing when it whiffs those chances.
The film squanders some dramatic possibilities and has a truncated sense about it. We are left to wonder whether something went wrong with the script, or in the editing room, or both.
