Critic Reviews for Zeros and Ones

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (12)

The paradoxical need for a would-be redeemer of humanity to know sin at first hand animates the film all the way down, from Hawke's passionate performance on through to the kinetics of Ferrara and Williams's seedy roving camera.

In a sense, this is Ferrara's pandemic quarantine movie. His 'response' is not like any you've seen before.

This is a movie at which some will shrug and some will love. It's a spiritually probing, deeply personal, stubbornly idiosyncratic work of art. It's an Abel Ferrara film.

Feels like diving into a murky river to search for a missing object, fully aware one might never find it but still willing to get wet in its slush for the sake of trying.

It stays true to Ferrara's playbook throughout its tidy 86 minutes.

November 18, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Utterly baffling, yet never less than intriguing, "Zeros and Ones" lingers in the mind. Even after you think you've brushed it off, its chilly tendrils continue to cling.
