4 stars out of 5 -- "RED ROAD follows its own steely path, and newcomer Kate Dickie brings a magnetic and troubling intensity to a complex, enigmatic lead role."Uncut "[Tony Curran] lends a vital, angry warmth to this dark, slow-paced drama, in a performance that also anchors the film's surprisingly melodramatic climax."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t plays like a hi-tech REAR WINDOW....Dickie and Curran cut through the complexities to the film's bruised heart."Total Film "Arnold is a burgeoning auteur....An unconstrained movie that indicates her familiarity with Alan Clarke, Ken Loach, Mike Leigh, and, presumably, Hitchcock's REAR WINDOW....An electrifying personal vision."Film Comment "[Kate Dickie] is a haunted, haunting presence, keeping an almost terrifying intensity hidden just beneath her drab exterior."
