Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 12/26/2001
"...The characters and the bond that develops between them are too complex for words....Their economy and the eloquence of Mr. Foster's unshowily beautiful images give MONSTER'S BALL the density and strangeness of real life..."
USA Today - 12/26/2001
"...MONSTER'S BALL proves that Halle Berry had a spectacular performance inside her waiting to be unleashed and that Billy Bob Thornton still had a third one left in his stunning 2001 stockpile..."
Box Office - 01/01/2002
"...An interesting tale: well-told, sad and funny and ultimately uplifting..."
Rolling Stone - 01/17/2002
"...The actors make it unique and unforgettable....You can't take your eyes off them..."
Variety - 11/19/2001
"...Burning with a quiet intensity, MONSTER'S BALL is bolstered by a poetic, intelligent sensibility..."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 02/01/2002
"...[Thornton] gives the best performance of his career in MONSTER'S BALL....This is a fearless, brutally honest performance, etched with shadings and remarkable subtlety..."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2002
"...Thornton displays a remarkable gift for understatement....Thornton brings a gentleness to the part that acts as a much-need balm on the wounds we see all around..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 06/02/2002
"...Written with the complexity of great fiction, avoiding obligatory scenes, cutting straight to the heart....The best film of 2001..."
