  • Steve Persall

    99 Homes combines the insight of documentary filmmaking with a thriller's urgency, opening our eyes to a complex, real-life tragedy while keeping it entertaining.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The movie works as a twinned character study, a moral suspense thriller, and an indictment of an America stacked against its working classes.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    If 99 Homes is a scolding look at a society gone astray, it is also a minor masterpiece of suspense, as tightly wound as “Sicario,” Denis Villeneuve’s white-knuckle drug-war thriller, and almost as brutal.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jessica Kiang

    99 Homes is by no means a perfect film, but it can achieve something more precious, and rarer than glossy perfection: it can take you by the shoulders and shake the apathy and complacency away.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    Aside from art-house fare, American movies of recent decades have tended to ignore even the most urgent social problems. Despite its lapses into melodrama, 99 Homes is a thought-provoking exception.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Of all the scary guys Michael Shannon has ever played — sociopaths, murderers, hell, even General Zod in a Superman movie — none is more frightening that his character in 99 Homes.

    Michael Shannon is both ruthless and strangely tender in his seemingly irredeemable character. Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    There's a Gordon Gekko vibe to Shannon's reptilian, charismatic villain. Like Oliver Stone's "Wall Street," 99 Homes understands that people don't sell their souls because they're inherently evil — they do it because being rich is cool.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Still, none of that holds back Bahrani's film from becoming a thought-provoking treatise on the self-perpetuating and dehumanizing nature of greed, which more often than not spawns desperation in others, which in turn spawns greed, which spawns more desperation, which spawns greed ...

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    [A] searing, perversely thrilling drama.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Because of its strong dialogue and convincing acting, 99 Homes stays on point for quite some time, artfully disguising the film's increasing reliance on plot devices.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Urgent as a heart attack and as timely as the headlines, 99 Homes is one of those films that make other "topical" dramas look tinny. This astute, intense drama boasts sharp performances and belongs in the same company as films like "Margin Call" and "Michael Clayton" -- contemporary stories whose of-the-moment nature only makes their great parts better.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Bahrani’s casting of Dern is genius. She’s such a profoundly unaffected actress that you instantly buy her aversion to her son’s lucre. She has a moral and aesthetic problem with that tacky mansion on the waterway. She wouldn’t fit in there.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    A relatively small, tough-minded drama about pitiless people doing unprincipled things, proves to be one of the most interesting, elegantly crafted and — paradoxically, given the dark subject matter — elating films to come along in recent memory.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    A timely, terrifically acted moral nail-biter.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The film is more closing argument than portrait of life in the downturn, but it's thrillingly vigorous in its damning.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Adam Smith

    Some plot developments are more convincing than others, but it’s still a compelling drama with an impressive turn from Garfield as well as Shannon and Dern as Garfield’s concerned mother.

    Empire Full Review
  • John Bleasdale

    [Bahrani's] created a complex and thoughtful political drama with the speed and tension of a good thriller.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    This is a tough, muscular, idealistic drama that packs a mighty punch, and Shannon and Garfield are excellent.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    At its best, 99 Homes finds Bahrani tightening the screws on his own style, going for speed, concision and an agitating rhythm where his previous films took their time. I hope he'll go on to make movies combining the vital aspects of all his work.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    A provocative, visceral, sometimes heartbreakingly relevant drama/thriller.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    99 Homes isn’t just a straightforward drama. It’s a suspense movie.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Catherine Bray

    Other than the unsubtle but vivid storytelling, the main joy of 99 Homes is seeing two excellent but very different actors spark off each other for almost the entire runtime, in a brace of performances both brilliant and brilliantly matched.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    An urgent work, the burning anger of which will viscerally connect with many viewers, who will recognize themselves or people they know up on the screen.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    This dynamically acted, unapologetically contrived pic reps the filmmaker’s best chance to date of connecting with a wider audience — one likely to share the helmer’s bristling anger over corruptly maintained class divides in modern-day America.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Before it goes off the rails in the final stretch, 99 Homes is a riveting rabble-rouser that thinks it can make a difference. In these days when Hollywood typically dulls our wits, Ramin Bahrani's 99 Homes has a fire in its belly. It's spoiling to be heard.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Carson Lund

    Ramin Bahrani's talent for orchestrating sequences of tightly wound tension is in full bloom here, as is his complementary knack for quieter grace notes.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    While its righteous rage is bracing, fans of the filmmaker Bahrani used to be will mourn the subtlety and careful character development of his early triumphs. His heart remains in the right place, but his head has gone hopelessly Hollywood.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Bahrani (and co-writer Amir Naderi) want the audience to go to the dark side with them without losing their faith in the system. To anyone who has watched this crisis unfold over the last decade, it will feel like a cheat.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    There might be a great movie to be made out of the financial crisis, but 99 Homes, which is like being shouted at by a man with bad breath while he grips your collar with both hands, isn’t it.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Iwish I could say 99 Homes delivers a shockingly good sucker punch to the American electorate and a stand-up-and-cheer piece of socially conscious filmmaking, but it’s not. It lacks the satisfactory denouement of, for instance, Michael Mann’s The Insider (and Garfield is no Russell Crowe), in part because the events it depicts are still happening across the country (albeit to a lesser extent).
