The Wolf Hour Reviews

May 18, 2020
A mind-blowing stop-motion animated feature.
April 15, 2020
Watts is left to do the heavy lifting as she has done so often, bringing her character shimmering into life, as real as if you were there in that sweatbox apartment with her - even this far from Mulholland Drive.

The Wolf Hour begins to feel strangely like an allegory for the paranoid fears of white women in a world of scary Black men.

December 6, 2019
Like the sheltered loner at its center, The Wolf Hour feels jailed amongst a string of half-realized ideas, too intimidated to step outside and tackle them head-on.

This movie is mostly just mood-setting, with much more going on in the background than the foreground.

[Watts] deserves an A for effort in a vehicle that rates a D for dreary, desolate and depressing. The rest of The Wolf Hour deserves an F for forget it.

December 5, 2019
A sometimes punishingly theatrical experiment that teeters on the verge of surreality, transfixing us with the promise of something terrible lurking just beyond those ratty curtains.
June 24, 2019
"The Wolf Hour" tries to make a five-course meal of the merest morsel, leaving Watts, on eminently watchable form, to grind her teeth on a role far less meaty than it ought to have been.
February 6, 2019
As The Wolf Hour is engrossing for much of its anxious timeline, it's the inner journey Watts provides that sticks with you most of all.
January 27, 2019
Second-rate Polanski fodder that crawls along with not much force beyond the neurotic protagonist's simmering dread and the vague menace of an intermittently buzzing intercom with no one there.
