New York Daily News
As wide-ranging, and yet as sharply focused, as Mikal Gilmore's book.
80
The New York Times
The director, Agnieszka Holland, and the screenwriter, Frank Pugliese, have created a scenario that unflinchingly captures the feverish and desperate intensity of Mikal's quest.
80
Village Voice
A small-screen aesthetic is evident in the abundant close-ups and tight framing, but Holland makes it work for her.
75
New York Post
Koteas and Ribisi, as two very different brothers, give realistic performances, and play off the differences brilliantly.
70
Variety
The piece is ultimately admirable for its lack of easy answers, for its continued sense of emotional confusion.
70
The A.V. Club
There's a tight, urgent, and timely film hidden inside Shot In The Heart, but it's not always worth forging through all the gratuitous bells and whistles to find it.
70
Ribisi is painfully intense without being histrionic.
