September 3, 2004
It's a movie consisting of two radically different halves, at least in terms of tone. And while the second half doesn't entirely atone for all the liberties taken in the first, it does a better job than might be expected.

This is a smart movie, full of astonishing reverses and switchbacks, and it adroitly walks the thin line between too clever by half and not clever enough by three-quarters.

A fairly engrossing look at the havoc obsession can wreak on people's lives.

Once we understand the principle (if not the details) of the plot, Wicker Park works because the actors invest their scenes with what is, under the circumstances, astonishing emotional realism.

The preview audience I saw it with hooted in disbelief at the outrageous bits, then happily dug in to see what would happen next.

Wicker Park, a deeply psychological story about love and obsession, is really a hard film to pin down--but refreshingly enough, that's a good thing

Ambitious script, slick director, strong supporting cast ... wrong lead actors.

For some, this will be an enjoyable mystery to sort out; for others it's a headache waiting to happen.
September 2, 2004
A very straight translation, with its complex, non-linear structure intact and none of the goofy comedy or lurid embellishments that have found their way into previous Hollywood clones of the genre.

McGuigan has a superb sense of wild romanticism, sometimes blending it with thriller-style tension and other times just reveling in it.

Three of the four leads are terrible (but) keen and cunning storytelling makes it possible to see Wicker Park for its strengths despite its tremendous weaknesses.

there's a je ne sais quoi about the film that transcends what might otherwise be mere art for art's sake and makes it pleasantly enjoyable

The four main characters are all odd, sad and lonely. No wonder they don't call each other on their cells to straighten things out -- they're all too depressed to dial.

Wicker Park is one of those maddening movies in which the characters do incredibly stupid things simply for the sake of plot contrivance, and everyone's problems would be solved if they simply picked up their cell phones.
March 18, 2014
A quite extraordinarily boring psychological drama of obsession, impersonation and mistaken identity.

Both bland and slightly daft.
