Det är främst tack vare en färgstark Michael Douglas som ett högst ordinärt drama blir lite extra sevärt.
...Solitary Man is sharply focused on Kalmen’s agonizingly slow road to self-awareness. And Douglas makes the most of this chance at a complicated character study.
A terrific turn by Douglas, and strong support, elevates this character-driven drama above its unlikeable protagonist.
...gives Douglas a chance to act, not merely posture or show off for the camera. It's some of the finest, least forced work he has done in years.
This is a smart, effective film, a comedy in many ways...
