Entertainment Weekly
What blows us away is the power of Ifans' moist puppy eyes and chilling smile as a true believer undeterred by reality.
75
Most movies remain at the top level of action: They are about what happens. A few consider the meaning of what happened, and even fewer deal with the fact that we have a choice, some of the time, about what happens and what we do about it.
75
Spellbinding.
75
Haunting case study of a romantic obsession.
75
A suspense thriller that intelligently explores the ideal of lasting love.
75
Chicago Tribune
A gripping, very intelligent British thriller. Slowly, inexorably, it ties you in knots.
75
If you don't compare it with the novel, it's one of the season's better films.

New York Daily News
Movie love is usually so idealized it ennobles behavior that ordinarily would be considered stalking. Enduring Love deliberately smudges the line between what is bizarre and what is simply human nature.
60
Wall Street Journal
Thus does a book of literary distinction become not-so-grand-Guignol.
60
The Hollywood Reporter
Daniel Craig, in his meatiest film role to date, delivers his usual incisive performance, even if this intimate drama of contemporary Londoners pushes the boundaries of credibility.
50
Philadelphia Inquirer
Filmmaker Roger Michell doesn't so much adapt Ian McEwan's fine novel Enduring Love, a surgically precise anatomy of romance and obsession, as eviscerate it and wave its entrails before the audience.
