All Critics (39) | Top Critics (9)

Castle in the Ground is a somber, if not sober, look at the bleak reality of the opioid epidemic...

December 29, 2020 | Full Review…

I liked this. It is unrelentingly bleak, but it is very well acted.

Wolff gives the material his all. If only his efforts could compensate for the film's gradual descent into banality.

May 15, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Weak plotting and sluggish direction (by Joey Klein) bury his increasing peril in a story that emphasizes the dead-end chaos of lives controlled by cravings.

May 14, 2020 | Full Review…

"Castle in the Ground" knows that everything is not going to be okay, but nothing is never that easy to accept in its place.

May 13, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

An earnest, sometimes skillful effort that nonetheless often feels slack and underwritten, as well as ultimately less-than-rewarding.
