Wander (2020)




Critic Consensus: Wander benefits from Aaron Eckhart's strong leading performance, but his efforts aren't enough to support the story's increasingly cuckoo twists and turns.

Movie Info

Arthur Bretnik is a conspiracy theorist and private eye with a traumatic past. After being hired to investigate a possible murder cover up in the small town of Wander, Arthur is plunged into a world of lies and deceit, as he quickly suspects the murder may be part of the same 'conspiracy cover up' that caused the death of his daughter. Increasingly paranoid, Arthur's sanity is tested as he attempts to filter fact from fiction and solve the case, all the while questioning if he is a pawn in a much bigger game.

Critic Reviews for Wander

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (3)

[Wander] is kind of a drag at times, despite the energy director Mullen puts into the scenario's depiction.

Admirably ambitious albeit ultimately bonkers...

December 2, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Perhaps the biggest problem with Wander is that, as much as it tools with the viewer until the very last shot, tossing out tons of red herrings and false leads, it never really trusts in the viewer's intelligence.

...patrols an invisible boundary between the underground hellhole of our protagonist's inner mind and the horrors of the real world beyond.

One of the lamest episodes of The X-Files never made, Wander actually brings to mind the name of Mad magazine's spoof of the cult series. Just call this The Ecch-Files.

April 28, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Wander tries to be a taut thriller, but after a while, it just wears you down.
