All Critics (21) | Top Critics (11)

It's Crudup who steals every scene, whether he's waxing philosophical about the benefits of iCloud or blackmailing Bud with a charming, unsettling grin.

July 15, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Story-wise, nothing in Glass Chin will surprise you. But stylistically, the film's got something cool going on.

June 26, 2015 | Full Review…

The true measure of a good tale is in the telling, and writer-director Noah Buschel spins his yarn in an unexpected, ultimately satisfying fashion.

June 26, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Despite an appealing fondness for New York locations and habits, Mr. Buschel and his cinematographer, Ryan Samul, have embalmed their film in style.

June 25, 2015 | Full Review…

Punchy dialogue, sharply drawn characters and excellent performances fuel "Glass Chin," an intimate drama that's set in the boxing world but is about so much more.

June 25, 2015 | Full Review…

Corey Stoll is the only reason to sit through this muddled Jersey-set drama.

Audience Reviews for Glass Chin


Really great film, like a novel playing out right in front of you. Stoll is one the most underrated actors around and deserves many more roles like this, you only have to watch House of Cards season 1 and homeland season 4 first episode to see the scope of his talent. I can't recommend this highly enough, the story and dialogue take center stage unlike other dramas. The camera work is minimal at best which is a great thing.
