  1. Gordon's way with actors and with screen storytelling is as impeccable as ever.
  2. 75
    The story quietly builds to a rueful and fraught climax in which Campbell Scott does his usual exceptional work
  3. 75
    It’s rare to see a film directed by a woman who knows more about men than they themselves do. With Handsome Harry, the widely respected independent filmmaker Bette Gordon has hit a bull’s eye.
  4. A powerfully acted but strident road movie.

    Beginning promisingly enough, "Handsome" soon turns monotonously angst-ridden, with all humor and personality falling by the wayside.
  6. As in the films that precede it, the mysteries--and terrors--of desire also propel Handsome Harry, which reunites Gordon with Luminous Motion's Jamey Sheridan, here in the title role.

    Harry’s haunted by his own identity crisis, but that breakdown translates into nothing but smeary, slo-mo flashbacks. Forget about insight into the macho mind-set.
