Critic Reviews for Intrigo: Death of an Author

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

This film tells us that the gulf between what we want to know and what we can know may never be illuminated.

January 17, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Perhaps when it comes to intricately strategized stories involving writers and their output, their telling would ultimately have been better served by the reader's imagination.

January 16, 2020 | Full Review…

The stagings are stilted; the relations between the conflicted characters never catch fire.

January 16, 2020 | Full Review…

A narrative puzzle that proves tiresome in the solving.

January 15, 2020 | Full Review…

The film evinces neither the visceral pleasures of noir nor the precision to uncover deeper thematic resonances.

January 13, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Slow-moving, convoluted, and chilly, this mystery (based on a novel by Swedish author Hakan Nesser) has the right ingredients, but it frequently feels disconnected, and it doesn't completely click.
