All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

The plotting is convoluted and the motivations not always clear, but the film gets by on the strength of some solid performances and the attractive photography by Bonnie Elliott.

It's an intelligent film, but it's relentless.

February 26, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

There are a lot of terrific genre elements in Undertow, particularly the themes about obsession and men behaving badly, so it's a pity these weren't dialled up to deliver a more satisfying third act.

A gripping psychological thriller pertaining to a woman giving birth to a stillborn child and grieving over the loss while trying to gain her bearings.

Both visually sophisticated and thematically ambitious. ... But its metaphorical imagery - water and blood, death and birth - becomes so heavy-handed that it occasionally veers into ridiculousness.

It's the women who take ownership of this moody show, both behind the camera and before it.
