Performers, Cast and Crew:
New York Times -
"The verbal intercourse that dominates that scene and every other in the film is vigorous, compulsive, sometimes painful and occasionally funny."
USA Today - 12/03/2004
"All the actors do fine work, but Owen's quixotic and brooding quality is particularly effective here."
Rolling Stone - 12/09/2004
"[T]he haunting, hypnotic CLOSER vibrates with eroticism, bruising laughs and dynamite performances from four attractive actors doing decidedly unattractive things."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/10/2004
"The place, the costumes, the staging of sexual provocation and betrayal are refined studies in luxurious understatement."
Film Comment - 01/01/2005
"[Portman is] the film's most enigmatic character..."
Uncut - 02/01/2005
"[T]his is an engrossing, anti-romantic movie about that bloody fist of an organ, the human heart."
Chicago Sun-Times - 12/03/2004
"They are all so very articulate, which is refreshing..."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2005
"[The performances] are strong and display a readiness to engage in the ugliness of the parts. Julia Roberts is refreshingly understated."
Ultimate DVD - 12/01/2007
3 stars out of 5 -- "A faithful screen adaptation of Patrick Marber's play....It's witty and well performed..."
