Critic Reviews for The Skin of the Teeth

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Proves consistently intriguing throughout and marks its writer-director as a talent to watch, even if it ultimately doesn't fully live up to its stylistic ambitions.

The first act had its teeth in me...The Hitchcockian references perfectly keeps the opening unbalanced...But then the second act begins.

Matthew Wollin's first feature might be a shoestring indie with only two settings - a bachelor pad and a police station interrogation room - and a single camera set-up, but it keeps us enraptured until the very end.

The Skin of the Teeth is an unusual film; not quite horror, not quite social commentary, but captivating due to its enveloping sense of unease and unpredictability.

Believe nothing; savour it all

Wollin's filmmaking is gleefully hypnotic, dragging the audience down into a rabbit hole with Josef, twisting and turning in unusual directions.
