Carrey's quietly exacting, uncharacteristic performance, though not qualifying as a saving grace, hints at some promising new career directions in the same manner Robin Williams successfully tapped a darker side with "One Hour Photo."

New York Times


A good story gets stuck in a puddle of mood in "Dark Crimes," a film that strays from its fascinating source - a real-life murder case - into a less successful attempt at noir.

Variety (USA)


The film's pace never deviates from its hushed, deliberate, anticipatory gaze - it's stuck in thriller-foreplay mode.
