Critic Reviews for Gabriel

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (13)

[Writer/Director Lou] Howe should be commended for taking on such a mature project that has its moments of intrigue, but Gabriel just never quite gets there.

September 1, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

"Gabriel" exhibits a welcome understanding of the broken, and the ripple effect of their pain.

June 25, 2015 | Full Review…

Gabriel is a showcase for Culkin, but it doesn't lose sight of the experiences of the characters' loved ones and the bone-deep exhaustion that comes with caring about him.

June 22, 2015

"Gabriel" never entirely compliments its eponymous subject with a story that can match his erratic mentality, but Howe's restrained approach is refreshingly unsentimental, never once creating the possibility of an easy resolution to the situation.

Top Critic

Is "Gabriel" trying to say anything about mental illness, or society's attitude toward it? I don't think so, and that's probably for the best, because it's a big part of what makes the movie so refreshing.

June 21, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

This film maintains its anxious themes throughout, which makes for some tedious stretches because the tension never breaks. Despite that, or maybe because of it, "Gabriel" is unexpectedly absorbing.
