November 7, 2014
It's nonsense, but it's glorious nonsense.

November 7, 2014
Before the tedious and convoluted cyber-thriller "Open Windows" is said and done, you may feel like jumping out of one.
November 6, 2014
A thriller with so many viewpoints, feints and fake-outs that it swiftly disappears up its own URL.
November 6, 2014
Open Windows works as both a crackerjack suspenser and an intellectually chewy meta-commentary on our current fascination with and engulfment by our digital devices.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 6, 2014
The combined concepts are so high that the film resolves as Vigalondo reaches his Icarus moment, the corpse so mangled and unpleasant the project's ambition can only be identified via dental records.

November 4, 2014
Timidity and perhaps fear, of visual confinement, of lingering emotional engagement, closes Nacho Vigalondo's most promising windows.

November 3, 2014
A fiendishly inventive thriller built around an audacious if unsustainable gimmick, Open Windows elevates Hitchcockian suspense to jittery new levels of mayhem and paranoia.
November 3, 2014
The gimmick plays well from a technical standpoint, but the story requires a suspension of disbelief that only genre diehards are likely to give.

Vigalondo is shooting for something densely layered, an expression of the complexity and moral murkiness of the hacker sphere, but he doesn't have the plot sorted out.
