Solomon keeps the drama generally clear and interesting, though some touches make the film-noir plot seem too pretentious.

ReelViews
A thoughtful, almost poetic, piece that puts forth the argument that redemption is not easily achieved.

It's an intriguing movie, and Thornton's performance is both fascinating and maddening.

Philadelphia Inquirer
A meditation on guilt, remorse and redemption -- is unrelentingly heavy.

Chicago Tribune
A film of almost paralyzing gravity and large ambitions that, almost inevitably, it can't quite meet.
50
Saddest, most hang-dog, most depressing movie possible.

Freeman and Hunter are both overqualified for material this ponderous, but she plays along, while he appears to have made a minimal emotional investment in the oncoming avalanche of coincidences and cliches.

New York Daily News
Where's the levity, you ask? There is none, or rather, there is none that Manuel can perceive.

Wall Street Journal
For all its seriousness, though, Levity struck me as pretentious and intractably lifeless.
25
A dreary film that's damn near torture to sit through.
