Our Opinion

As a viewer it is an immersive cinematic experience, which is worth watching on a TV set, but it makes one wonder how much more impactful the viewing experience would be in a movie theater. The narrative structure is well executed, and the one-shot filming is impressively well choreographed, the lighting is impeccable, and the performances are all too convincing. We most certainly recommend this movie. It is one of a kind in contemporary cinema.

Movie Reviews

“Even at its most far-fetched, ‘Boiling Point’ retains an essential sense of integrity thanks to the honest, urgent presence of star Stephen Graham”

Guy Lodge: Variety

“[It] may be anchored by Graham’s superbly kinetic performance but ultimately proves a team effort. The nimble, naturalistic performers are uniformly terrific”

Gary Goldstein: Los Angeles Times
