Open Windows is compelling in a the most voyeuristic way possible as we see Chord's exploitation of Jill through Nick's eyes, which given recent events seems eerily ripped straight from the headlines.

Open Windows is a stretched out gimmick, one hiding its predictability in its flashy visual innovations.

If you can muscle past the plot weirdness, you'll find a movie with a strong insight into celebrity culture in the Internet age.

Director/writer Nacho Vigalondo has crafted a clever storyline that keeps us engaged throughout.

August 21, 2018
Open Windows is entertaining, but the plot makes very little sense and is astronomically unbelievable past the first 30 minutes.
March 16, 2017
Vigalondo is a talented filmmaker, but this thriller is perhaps a little too ambitious with an execution that doesn't convey all of his big ideas in a way that's cohesive and consistent.

Only by the film's final third does it realize the proper sense of escalation.

Even though the story is over in a click, Elijah Wood has enough power to stop us here and there with great moments of suspense, intrigue and erotism. [Full review in Spanish]

[Open Windows] is a complex puzzle that favors formula over content... but as the movie goes on it becomes increasingly unsatisfactory [full review in Spanish]
January 28, 2015
The plot of "Open Windows" sounds like a great idea for a high-tech thriller. But, the end product, unfortunately, is just a confused mixture of contrivances that don't add up.

January 26, 2015
A vise-gripped suspenser that reminds in its best moments of Brian De Palma in his professional prime.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 13, 2015
You can call Open Windows a lot of things -- baffling, sloppy, unfocused, and heavy-handed -- but you can't call it lazy.

All the cool technology on display fizzles out amid the emotionally detached contrivances.
November 14, 2014
It's a shame that Open Windows squanders the potential it brews up at its start.

November 10, 2014
A disgusting tale that imagines its tiny side dish of commentary on toxic fandom and male entitlement makes up for it being a perfect example of such.
November 7, 2014
With the film feeling so remarkably slapdash, it is a big step down Vigalondo's previous work, and a hugely disappointing English language debut.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
