Critics Consensus

Critical Consensus: Awake Not Screened For Critics

The most exciting week in the history of cinema.

by | November 29, 2007 | Comments

This week at the movies we have a grand total of one new wide release: Awake, starring Jessica Alba and Hayden Christensen. What do the critics have to say?

Actually, not much. Awake — which features Christensen as a surgery patient who overhears his own murder plot while under the knife and Alba as his wife entrusted with preventing the deed — isn’t being screened for critics. You know the operation: Guess That Tomatometer!



“Yes, double the Snood!”

Also opening this week in limited release:
The Savages
, starring
Laura Linney and
Phillip Seymour Hoffman as a siblings dealing with their aging
father, is at 93 percent (check out our interview with director Tamara Jenkins
here, while you can check out our Sundance review here); Julian Schnabel‘s
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, the inventive
biopic of a man who suffered a stroke and could only communicate by blinking, is
at 88 percent; Jessica Yu‘s
Protagonist, a visually stunning doc about
four people on personal journeys, is at 88 percent;
Teeth
, the story of a
teenager with, um, deadly genitals, is at 80 percent; Oswald’s Ghost, a doc about the Kennedy assassination, is at
67 percent;
Chronicle of an
Escape
, the story of a group of Argentine men who were kidnapped, is at 60
percent; The Rocket, a biopic of hockey great Maurice Richard, is at 50
percent.



“Turn your head and clench.”
