News & Interviews for Rid of Me

Critic Reviews for Rid of Me

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (10)

This hectoring visual style becomes particularly irritating in combination with his rigid social stereotyping.

December 1, 2011 | Full Review…

O'Grady is very good, but she can't make the hard-to-watch Rid of Me dramatically credible.

November 18, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Unconvincing tale of self-empowerment has attitude and anxiety but nothing underneath.

November 18, 2011 | Full Review…

Westby's nervy story is like "Desperately Seeking Susan" played straight. Let's hope O'Grady's next film meets this one's potential.

November 17, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Comes at you like a horror movie before settling down into something quieter but equally skin crawling.

November 17, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5

It's a bittersweet ode to downward mobility and letting go that's a throwback to a time when slackerdom was more of a lifestyle choice than something forced upon you by grim economic realities.

November 17, 2011 | Rating: 7.5/10
