30Filled with joyless people in drab rooms (Josh Silfen's grubby cinematography doesn't make things any cheerier), Silver Tongues takes a novel idea and uses it to jerk us around. Swirling with unease, its scenes set us up for a payoff that never materializes and strand its actors in a bitter present.

10"Nothing is what it seems to be in SILVER TONGUES... Writer-director Simon Arthur, whose affinities for sociopathic antics evoke the psychological mousetraps of Neil LaBute and David Mamet, maintains suspense with unyielding dramatic momentum."
- Steve Dollar, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
"A cynical, ice-cold tease... Clever and well acted..."
- Jeanette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
"A really well-crafted psychological drama, made with terrific technical flair: clearly influenced by David Mamet but nonetheless very distinctive and supremely watchable."- Peter Bradshaw, THE GUARDIAN
"An impressively dark and deranged tale of scams, manipulation and sexual control" - Mark Adams, Screen International
"Deliciously evil... Brilliant" - Stars and Popcorn
"Compelling" - Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
