More Info:
  • Richard Roeper

    This movie soars on the strength of the screenplay. Monahan gives Hedlund and in particular Isaac dozens upon dozens of rich, intricate lines, and they’re both up to the task and then some. Isaac is an actor who is not afraid to go big or go home, but in Mojave, his finest moments are relatively quiet and sublime. Every inch of his performance is pure excellence.

    The players and their flinty, smart dialogue make this lean movie the screen equivalent of bleached bones in the desert sand — bones with just enough meat on them to lure us in.

    Mojave’s real reason for existing is the wiry, woolly dialogue that Monahan has spun out for his actors.

    Time Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Prickly, suspenseful, even coolly humorous, Mojave finds noirish fun in the existential woes of a successful artist and old-fashioned movie pleasure in the parry and thrust of sharp dialogue.

  • Casey Cipriani

    The overarching problem with Mojave is that the two tones don't mesh well together, to the point where it seems Monaghan can't decide if he wants to make an ominous neo-western or a dark satire. Fortunately, the filmmaker's committed lead actors make some of the storytelling issues bearable.

  • Glenn Kenny

    To his credit, the writer-director maintains a pretty decent balance between his disgust with this Business We Call Show and the movie’s thriller mechanics, which are not entirely well-engineered but do chug along to a not-unsatisfying climax. Full Review

    Does it add up? Not really, but it passes the time nicely, working best when Mr. Monahan keeps it vague and off-kilter as his characters roam among the Hollywood ghosts.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    A weird, uneven mixed bag, there’s much about Mojave that’s paradoxically maddening and doesn’t really add up. As the movie plot becomes less interesting and more straight-forward — like a slasher movie with the evil antagonist character slowly closing in on the hero — it becomes funnier and more purely enjoyable.

    In a small role as a self-absorbed film producer, Mark Wahlberg is touchingly effective.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Mojave is a movie-length standoff between two detestable villains. One is a serial killer. The other is a filmmaker.

  • David D'Arcy

    Humor does provide some welcome relief from the heaviness of Mohave’s script.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    By turns inert and logorrheic, William Monahan’s pseudo-intellectual nut-scratcher Mojave is a movie of barely furnished mansions and lens flare-speckled landscapes.

  • Frank Scheck

    In a simpler form, Mojave might have been a gripping if minor genre film. Instead, it's undone by the sort of pretentious overwriting that might have seemed impressive in the '70s but now comes across as merely forced.

    It would better to call it Two Actors in Search of a Story.

  • Moira Macdonald

    In the cast, only Isaac makes a vivid impression, in a swaggery, relaxed turn that seems to imply that he’s in on the joke, or at least having a good time.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Like the high desert that provides its main setting, William Monahan’s Mojave is dry, often windy and full of hot air.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Is Mojave's twisty purposelessness showing how producers ruin the work of screenwriters, or is it evidence that screenwriters often need another set of eyes?

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Monahan isn’t required to satisfy bloodlust or to pay off conventional plot points, even if his screenplay for “The Departed” displayed an abundant talent for doing so. But he assumes too much in believing that the audience will connect in any way with a sour, prickly narcissist who’s trapped in the gilded cage of wealth and fame.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    In his second directorial effort, Mojave, Monahan has no such map to follow, and he wanders in a land of sophomoric pretentiousness and banal profundities.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Chuck Bowen

    With the film, director William Monahan offers audiences a bundle of fetishes dressed up as an existentialist thriller about the class system.

  • Rex Reed

    Mojave is 93 minutes of gibberish with guns and phony literary pretentiousness about two thugs in a duel of weapons and words that goes nowhere fast.
