Critic Reviews for Walter

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

A lovely and touching third act helps make up for a wobbly, at times convoluted first hour in the quirky fantasy-dramedy "Walter."

What a strange little indie film this is.

March 12, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The narrative is effectively constructed and the cinematography is crisp. Even so, in touching lightly on themes without committing to any of them, the movie falls flat.

What's not to love, after all, about a therapist who calls a mentally unbalanced man crazy to his face? But it's also an appropriate response to both Walter the movie and Walter the ridiculous construct of a movie character.

March 12, 2015 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

An outstanding cast goes a long way toward helping the movie to leap past its outlandish gimmick.

Feels something like gathering a team of master chefs to make a breakfast of corn flakes and Tang.

Audience Reviews for Walter

I found this movie to be really enjoyable as a tale of a teenage son coming to terms with the loss of his father and how grieve can divide a family. Some genuinely funny moments with some well known stars.
