Critic Reviews for The Well

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

Samantha Lang's Australian rural gothic, which premiered in the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, offers a few twists but id ultimately frustrating and pretentious due to Laura Jones' enigmatic and undernourished script.

Obviously, this is a must see for fans of Welles, but any film buff would certainly dig this doc.

A tight, claustrophobic psychological thriller from Down Under.

The Well wins points for its creative use of filters and silence... but those looking for a real creepshow will probably be left wanting.

April 4, 2002 | Rating: 3/5

This unconventional and macabre Australian film is an exploration of yearning and the always fascinating subject of relationships between women.

Despite a deliberate paced and occasional pretentions, this is an effective psychological thriller that studies sexual repression.
