Not even the flawless Tilda Swinton could make me believe this contrived, self-satisfied piece of exploitation disguised as an art film. Everything is unmotivated here: The psycho son, the clueless, one-dimensional dad who seems not to have a job, the cardboard daughter, even the inexplicable soundtrack. The irony here is all in the title: They never do. Ha ha. Ha ha. Ha. No, we need to talk about the script.

Damn. That was one relentlessly soul-crushing ride. Kudos to Jasper Newell, playing young Kevin and creating one of the most uncomfortably disturbed human beings I've seen in a while. (The naked man who lives in my attic doesn't count) The non-linear structure works wonders, making you dread the reveals that are still to come. And when they do, they hit like a ton of bricks. A horror movie for aspiring parents.

Profoundly unsettling, often coming off as a realistic psychological horror. Swinton is amazing and both Newell and Miller are disturbing in their respective portrayals of the deeply troubled Kevin. As a viewer you want the parents to get him professional help early on, rather than struggle privately, but the film makes it clear that Kevin is a manipulative and calculating individual. The film shows enough to disturb without getting graphic, but leaves many questions about Kevin's psychopathy.

I don't think any film this year will top the unsettling atmosphere set up by Ramsay, who draws out powerful performances from both Swinton and Miller against a red tinted canvas of parental guilt. While thematically upsetting, there's no denying what an excellent piece of filmmaking this is, which was apparent from the get-go and had left my stomach in knots long after the credits started rolling. *adding Everyday from Buddy Holly to the list of songs I'll never listen to again*

9 years since her last masterpiece, Morvern Callar, Lynne Ramsay finally delivers another - and it was worth waiting. An extremely disturbing, thought-provoking and multi-layered film, it seemed to me only superficially about blame (as Kevin exhibits all the markings of a clinical psychopath) and more about parental love. But the film is irreducibly complex. As well, Ramsay's mastery of directing is total, the entire cast is magnificent, and every technical aspect is in perfect tune.

An expressionist nightmare of a mother's worst fear: that her child will grow into a monster and destroy her. Setting aside the obvious - that Tilda Swinton is the best, most fearless actor on the planet - what's striking about We Need to Talk... is how complex and ambivalent it is. Is Kevin simply fated from day one to be a cruel sociopath? Did Eva nurture this behavior, or snuff out his compassion? Unfortunately for her, she'll have a lifetime to ponder those same questions.

Starts off a bit like a psychological horror, & remains threatening & unsettling for its entire runtime. Swinton is extraordinarily brilliant, giving a performance that sees her display an impressive array of emotions & states. Her support cast is great too, with Ramsay's foreboding & stylish direction displaying an effective use of colour. The only thing that holds this movie back from greatness is the editing & structure just starts to unravel in the last quarter. Still highly recommended.

We Need to Talk About Kevin gets under your skin from the first frame. It's the kind of film you often have half a wish to stop watching, yet know you can't. To its detriment, a lot of the psychological aspects of each character went unexplored and the unsettling feeling of intense dread it left me with was coupled with one of feeling annoyingly short-changed. It may be a film too impressive for its own good; because it's so great, I resented it for not being perfect. Still, one of 2011s finest.

It will move you, unsettle you, disturb you, and disgust you. And it does all these things unapologetically while avoiding any ham-fisted attempt at rationalization. The non-linear narrative approach is an added stylistic bonus that only enhances the confusion of the mother which is portrayed effortlessly by the always dependable Tilda Swinton.

Rarely does a film get under my skin and suck all feeling out of me leaving me a shivering numb mess. Brilliant directing from Ramsay who handles the challenging narrative with rock steady confidence & expert precision. She really does a flawless job here. All the actors are great too with Miller as the black hole at the centre of the film & Swinton being almost unbelievably good. Gold star for Jasper Newell as well but seriously, fuck having kids (watched this back to back with the Babadook).

Dark and depressing as all hell. Visually rich while being stylistically unnerving. Swinton gives perhaps the best performance I've ever seen from her, with Ezra Miller going toe-to-toe with her in many scenes and doing a fine job as such a contemptuous little shit. Thematically it brings up a lot of interesting questions and doesn't try and answer them, causing you to - as Eva does - piece through the memories and try to understand Kevin without really knowing for sure why he did what he did.

Defies psychological insight for a straight-up, Omen-style horror film that removes the gory horror and leaves the psychological assault. Kevin is pure nihilism, but the film itself, oddly, is not. Tilda Swinton delivers her greatest performance (probably hyperbole, I just finished watching the film).

Can't believe how well they casted this film... If anything, it'll keep your head spinning for days - so, so nasty and depressing, really. It's a real problem delivery this film, with the wonderfully infected philosophical problem of how to deal with the fact some people actually raised and created some of the monsters of this world. How has, say, Anders Breiviks mother been able to live on after Utøya? Makes you think.

WNTTAK is irrevocably attached to the perspective of Swinton, which is to say that it's structurally unmoored & the events depicted within completely unreliable. Kevin, however one-note, is a villain for the ages: a nightmarish automaton seemingly subjecting his mother to a game the point & rules of which he refuses to offer -- though the suggestion Swinton loathes Kevin for the responsibility he entails undermines the veracity of her account & makes for a not-so-nice allegory abt motherhood.

Miller and Swinton are highly skilled actors. Apart from that, I'm unsure what to take away from this dark film, even after a second viewing. The lack of a point (other than 'there was no point') tempted me to reject it but making a message movie out of this material would, I realize, have been in poorer taste. Though I feel that Ramsay's art house approach is close to being overdone here, it's visually interesting, and the cumulative effect of discomfort she creates is certainly a powerful one.

It's been a long waiting for Lynne Ramsay's return after the excellent Morvern Callar, but never the less worth the while. WNTTAK is equally mesmerizing photography and engaging acting from especially Swinton and Ezra... It doesn't take long before you realise that the parents seriously need to talk about Kevin! Although similar in theme to Beautiful boy WNTTAK is the most recommendable should you only want to watch one of them.

Horrifying, tragic, and, ultimately, exhausting. Tilda Swinton has been on a rampage of wonderful performances as of late, and she surpasses them all here. The themes aren't hard to gather, but the non-linear story, paired with absolutely gorgeous visuals, give a pretty masterful tale.

Honestly, you can't help but feel something: disgust, sadness, anger, whatever. The film is so good at exploring its complex themes, where no shot is wasted, that it digs itself deep into you and it'll stay there. The way the music mixes so well with the great, stylish visuals (and the jumping back and forth between past and present), the acting... This is a dark as hell movie, and that's wonderful because it doesn't pull punches.

Apart from some problems I have with the ending, this is a strong addition to an already strong year in film. It can be easy to get tired of films that jump around chronologically, and the film can be jarring to start with, but it settles and ends up working quite well. It's an impressively put together film with a shockingly snubbed performance from Swinton; it's only the ending that derails it, and even then not enough to cripple a recommendation.

The Eraserhead baby is more believable than Kevin. Mom/dad are the 'tripping while being chased' of parenting, in classic horror fashion they're begging for advice to be yelled at the screen: "Where are the boundaries and discipline? Assign some chores!" "Don't give him a bow, make him join a team sport!". Sadly the school shooting tracks as the most realistic part of the story

Incredibly unsettling. The direction was really impressive. I was also really impressed with the child actor that played a young Kevin. Overall, it's an interesting look at what it's like to try to deal with a profoundly disturbed and manipulative child. You could really describe it as a realistic version of all those B horror movies with a possessed child.

While a little laboured and "by the numbers", with a lot of 'walking down corridors' and staring, this is still extremely gripping stuff, with mesmerizing performances from all concerned. A film about parental love, complete responsibility and yet the total lack of ability to do anything about a truly evil child. The three "Kevins" were simply superb ... in a horrible sort of way

Tilda Swinton plays Robert Carlyle, a not particularly good mother with a psycopath for a son. Despite it's oh so clever non-linear (partly) storytelling everything is predictable and the metaphors are heavy handed. Well done to casting for finding the right kids for Kevin's various stages. It's dull and the conversation goes on far too long. Tilda displays both emotions, happy now and again and the other one for the rest of it.

Superb examination of a major taboo: what happens if a mother does not love her child. The non-linear construction is brilliantly done - I never felt lost for a moment - and you don't know whether to loathe or have sympathy for Swinton's character. Harrowing and intense, this is one of the most disturbing films I have ever seen.

A thoroughly unpleasant experience. The imagery is adeptly layered, the characters nuanced and fully-fleshed out. Even though the film is not at all graphic, it's one of the most disturbing movies I have ever seen. That said, it's a tremendously important film in that it gets us closer to understanding the spates of senseless violence that have become so commonplace in the United States. An impressive work that stands well out from the usual arthouse drivel about violent children.

I've believed for some time that Tilda Swinton is the most talented actress working today, and this movie solidifies my opinion. She's phenomenal. Her character's grief, guilt, and confusion pour out honestly and convincingly. What a nightmare situation she's living. This could very well be considered a horror movie. It's like The Omen, only set within reality. The disjointed narrative works well. This is a compelling, horrifying movie that I won't soon forget.

This is not an easy film to digest nor is it a film that prides itself in its simplicity, "We Need to Talk About Kevin" is a complex film with heavy themes and a challenging structure. It's disturbing, emotional and completely dark, but where some may see that as a deterrent, I see it as a notion for artistic expression and that's exactly what Lynne Ramsay saw as well. This is a fabulously directed film and easily one of my very favourites of 2011.

Swinton is very good, and there are some nice shots/sound design/technical things. Found the style and many shots to be a bit much too, though. I also find it hard to believe that Swinton would not have forced Reilly to see what was going on and take demonchild to a therapist. That said, it's mostly pretty effective and gripping, and certainly a film expecting parents should avoid seeing.

The omen can be very personal. Lynne Ramsey's portrait of an individual pressing the other mentally was disastrously manipulative mind rape. How far you can go? I liked the shattered editing how the director guided us little by little into the heart of the story. What happened before and why? And where is the parental place in this horrible puzzle? How anybody outsider can understand it?

It's The Omen meets The Good Son, and the result is unsettling. The only issue is, with the supernatural element absent, how can Kevin's bad behavior as a baby-on-up be explained? The acting is fantastic, and the story telling is well done, so the lone skip in reality is very forgivable.

The technical aspects of it were close to perfect, but the storyline has something that is lacking introspection, despite the obvious attempt to make exactly that the central piece. Also, some of it is considerably far-fetched if you rewind in retrospect after the climax. That doesn't mean the film isn't enjoyable and gut-punching, though. Turn your frame of mind into feeling rather than rationalising and you are good to go. Hopefully.

Are you well-to-do & your infant son is showing glaring signs of developing as a sociopath? If you answered yes, well, there's not much you can really do. I mean, you can't neglect him or you get arrested & are the revelation of your book group. You can't implement corporal punishment or you again, get arrested. You can't leave him to his own devices, as you raise a Kevin. I guess the safest option is find the most acceptable excuse for boarding school, continue liquoring up & hope for the best.

Effective horror that mostly suggests Kevin’s psychopathy is innate, while leaving doubt by emphasising the first-person focus on the mother and by not showing certain events she did not herself witness. Some scenes were not as well-judged as others, some aspects of the story did not quite make sense, the incessant focus on the mother’s suffering is perhaps a little overdone, and the tension is slightly dissipated prior to the conclusion, but, overall, quite impressive and interesting.

A tomato-themed examination of the many different stares of Tilda Swinton. But let's talk about Kevin. *Spoilers* The decision to make him a psychotic archer belongs in film school script class, as it alleviates the film of all moral ambiguity. What's left, then, is the passion of Swinton, swept in curious montage music and different shades of red. Kevin may be a fair depiction of how children really are, but in a world less one dimensional, his bow and arrow antics would've been stopped.

Ramsay's adaptation of the disturbing book is an atmospheric and quite uncomfortable combination of score -- another haunting work by Jonny Greenwood -- and violent imagery suggestions. I guess it lacks the psychological depth of the book -- Miller's simplistic looks and moves are completely out of sync with Tilda's trembling performance --, but it's the type of creepy domestic horror that leaves you dismayed, almost lifeless.

Finally a movie that shows what it's like to be a mother of Damien (Kevin?!), son of satan, when you have a circus clown for a husband. It's not all bad - Swinton creates a very strong character and there are some fine filmmaking, especially use of colour and sounds to create a distinguishable atmosphere. But even atmosphere sometimes gets overplayed, if I was to guess - to compensate weak script.

These are my favourite kind of films: the ones that just affect you, right down to your core. I really liked the non-linear story structure. It gave such a sense of foreboding. Tilda Swinton gives an amazing performance, without ever giving the audience an emotional release. The entire film was like that, really - it held back, making everything very tense. The rest of the performances were great too. The film is dark, disturbing, unnerving, realistic, powerful, violent, and captivating.

It shares its same main deficit with the novel it's based on: Kevin's 'evilness' is totally unjustified, nearly supernatural, resulting in several plot gaps and questionable character development. Nevertheless, this is a rock-solid adaptation: Ramsay successfully toys with the timeline while providing excellent visuals; Swinton is luminous in the lead and Miller is also a revelation; the scenes that are meant to have a devastating emotional impact are at worst partially successful.

Outstanding, assaultive drama, with Swinton in the performance of a lifetime, and Miller as her son not far behind. Subjective point of view negates any criticism of the depiction of the child's behaviour, and intense feelings of dread and terror permeate every frame. Masterfully produced and directed; sounds and visuals are almost unbearably painful at times (aided by a fixation on the colour red). A unique, disturbing and singularly terrifying film.

Fairly one-note and predictable pic with a jumbled and wayward narrative. There are loose, avante garde segments that are artful and exciting, and there's a sense that somewhere there's a kernel of an idea revolving around childhood/parenthood/exploration/freedom.. but the majority of the film is spent re-iterating how odd this kid is and/or how disfunctional the family is, almost to the point of caricature, without it being particularly substantive or entertaining. Slight in take-away value.

I haven't read the book this movie is based on, so I can't say much about the point of view it presents. The story of Kevin and his family is portrayed really only through the eyes of the mother (Tilda Swinton) here, so it might be a bit skewed. Either way, this disturbing story is very real. So many red flags that get ignored. There's that whole thing 'are some people just born bad or misunderstood' and if there could have been a way to prevent this.

Didn t work for me at all. With the husband it has one of the weakest characters i ve ever come across. Furthermore they overdid the whole jumping from one time to another time in the story which destroyed any flow this movie needed.

Wonderful movie. Tilda Swinton is Always very competente and Ezra Miller is a great talent. I hope I'll see him in a lot more movies.

How does a movie that portrays its main character as capital-E-Evil to the point of comicality receive so much praise for its psychological aspects? How am I supposed to care about a family situation, when even that very situation is not explored in the slightest? We Need to Talk is well-made for sure, but it seems to do everything in its power to conceal the emptiness within. It explores nothing. It discusses nothing. It reveals nothing. It's nothing but a ride, and a depressing one at that.
