Critic Reviews for Listening

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

To call it amateurish would be kind.

September 10, 2015 | Full Review…

Begins as a fitfully intriguing character study before flying off the rails as a nightmarish vision of government encroachment on free thought.

September 10, 2015 | Full Review…

It looks and feels like a particularly well made student film (so many colored filters), but the subject matter is rather more interesting and weirdly plausible than the recent spate of big-budget AI films.

September 10, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Sullins' movie has its heart and brain in the right place, but its guts are a mess.

September 9, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Director/screenwriter Khalil Sullins makes an auspicious feature debut with his audacious sci-fi thriller that's as engrossing as it is thought-provoking.

September 8, 2015 | Full Review…

Too bad Sullins doesn't have a movie's worth of story out of this premise. Rather than pioneering into the frontiers of the mind, Listening slogs through the most well-traveled pits of screenwriting.

Has some important things to say, but is far from truly engaging.
