    Don McKay is a curious hybrid of warring tones that occasionally make peace. When they do, it's quite magical.
  2. The premise of the short-story-size comic thriller Don McKay is as thin and crumbly as a corn chip.
  3. He definitely needs more experience, but writer/director Jake Goldberger displays an appealingly skewed sense of humor in his noir debut.
  4. Reviewed by: Michelle Orange
    A strange, largely inert indie thriller, Don McKay has got good bones (inspired by Blood Simple, it has a solid cast and a strong pitch) but a terrible metabolism.
  5. 50
    Though quite watchable thanks to its cast, the overly ambitious Don McKay ends up as confused as its main female character.
  6. 50
    The only person in Don McKay having a better time than Shue is Melissa Leo, who plays Sonny’s insinuating housemate. She’s too much by half, in an Agnes Moorehead sort of way.
  7. 25
    A ludicrously pretentious train wreck masquerading as a movie.
