Critic Reviews for Stillwater
This is a thoughtful, knotty character study, albeit one nestled inside a polished, and less interesting, action thriller.
It seems Marseilles's immigrant population, as with Knox herself, are treated as mere casualties in Stillwater's grand vision. If only that vision had some substance to it.
The quality of the acting makes it easy to overlook how increasingly leaden "Stillwater" becomes - but not easy enough.
This is a man who has lost step with his times... but there is something touching about his earnest politeness and also something novel: when was the last time you saw a conservative blue-collar dad in a leading role?
It'd be more openly ridiculous, feel far more manipulative, if not for Damon's performance... [His] magic is in making a certain plainness, a near-anonymity, defiantly charismatic.
