Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is a fairly slow and talky fact-based drama aimed at older adults. Fans of Mark Ruffalo will enjoy this though Anne Hathaway fans may be disappointed by her fairly limited screen time. There is some language, disturbing images, and mature subject matter that make the film not for kids, who would not be interested anyhow.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good "Dark Waters" is still a strong and involving, though understated, example of this dying breed of film, resonating with present-day feelings of hopelessness at the brazen corruption on display every day in the United States, and throughout the world.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good Dark Waters is a generic title for a movie that is anything but the same old legal thriller. ... while the film compresses time — getting the case together took decades — there is no massaging of facts to make for a manageable running time or a more digestible entertainment.

Rex Reed Full Review
Excellent A Perfect Movie. Riveting, responsible and deeply unsettling, a first-rate film like Dark Waters is a rare and welcome chapter in the dramatic fabric of how one unlikely person can make a big dent in the world of social injustice.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average ...intermittently hits upon a few original ways of representing its ripped-from-the-headlines mandate. Faint praise, perhaps, but this film aims to spread the news rather than bask in its own glory. Dark Water's strong suit is its central performances. As Bilott, Ruffalo provides a bristling tension...
