Village Voice
Keane is a painfully specific figure but at the same time a totem, lean and frightening, for a morass of modern anxieties. That might be this phenomenal film's emergent achievement: Its raw hopelessness is its universality.

Entertainment Weekly
The movie draws us into complicity with someone who may be on the verge of insanity, but only because he's living with the unbearable.
80
The New Republic
Extraordinary--vivid, stripped, intense.
75
New York Post
Lewis, from the TV series "Band of Brothers," gives a super performance, but the revelation here is young Breslin, who was in Garry Marshall's "Raising Helen" and M. Night Shyamalan's "Signs."

Keane is a movie you might see on a dare, and though I think it is brilliantly conceived, I wouldn't dare to dare you.
70
A spare, claustrophobic film.
70
Variety
Convincing as a portrait of a marginal man gone beyond the emotional pale.
70
The A.V. Club
Throughout Keane, there's an unnerving feeling that Lewis is capable of anything, from harming himself to assaulting anyone around him.
70
Mr. Kerrigan isn't just playing with our sympathies; he's also playing with our assumptions. That keeps the tension going.
70
Harrowing but enormously empathetic.
