    Mr. Hauck’s affection is apparent in every frame, yet outside of an occasionally clunky line or show-offy moment (O.K., sometimes it’s more occasional than just occasionally), he rarely allows it to alter his aim. That aim is to make a modern noir. That aim is true.

    Like the hardboiled detectives of yore, Too Late ultimately gets the job done — even if it's in its own off-the-books way.

  • Gary Goldstein

    Hauck, with a strong assist from Bill Fernandez's clever, well-modulated Techniscope lensing, impressively choreographs the movie's continuous takes with a nice balance of intimacy and breadth. Hauck's a talent to watch.

    If you enjoy strippers delivering monologues on Bugs Bunny — something that actually happens in this movie — then Too Late will scratch that same adolescent itch that leads young film buffs to dress in black suits and Ray-Bans after seeing "Reservoir Dogs" for the first time.

  • Raffi Asdourian

    Undeniably ambitious, Hauck’s debut is a fascinating study of genre homage and cinematic technique that wears its heart on its sleeve, even if it’s not always aware of that fact.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    With Too Late, Hauck confirms that he’s a master of the film medium. What’s less convincing is why this film matters.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • John Hartl

    The results are uneven. Almost any scene with Hawkes is alive and satisfyingly showy. You feel his absence when he isn’t there, though Joanna Cassidy, Crystal Reed and Robert Forster all have their moments.

  • Sheri Linden

    With its overt nods to movies, nonlinear structure and purple-tinged dialogue, the self-conscious artifice of Hauck’s first feature can be suffocating. This narrative puzzle should be more fun than it is.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Filmed in five long 35mm takes, this murder mystery features a fair amount of cinematic virtuosity, but it’s too self-conscious and uneven to be entirely successful.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Too Late is a good-looking gimmick of a movie, one that will only be shown in theaters on 35mm film. Old-school advocate Quentin Tarantino would be proud — as he should be, since this noir starring John Hawkes feels like a big old valentine to him.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    As a spiritually “lost” man searching for a more literally lost woman, Hawkes has just the offhand gravitas required for a noir hero. Yet in a movie where character backstory and plot coherence hardly figure, any emotional realism the actor provides is wholly his invention.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Emblazoned with ambition, this throwback Seventies-style private-eye movie (think Robert Altman’s "The Long Goodbye" or Robert Aldrich’s "Hustle") seems more invested in its form than its content.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Kenji Fujishima

    All the narrative hopscotching is little more than a superficial ploy to gussy up a clichéd redemption tale.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Charlie Schmidlin

    As exampled in “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” any chance to hear Hawkes perform solo on guitar is time well spent. It’s time well needed, too, as it provides a moment of reflection to remember why we came — Hawkes — and wonder how he found himself in such a confounding misfire.
