September 10, 2012An exceedingly off-the-wall animated endeavor...
March 07, 2013After the success of the irreverent The Book of Mormon, this would be a natural for the stage-Broadway would be so lucky.
November 29, 2012The animation is great, in its stark, mostly monochromatic way, but the music merely serviceable.
March 12, 2013The ever-diverse Patrice Leconte has made an original, darkly humorous animation about a store assisting suicidals.
November 22, 2012This is a film of two halves, with the half involving sweetness and light muddled and limp in comparison to its tougher, more sinister flipside, while the ending is almost unforgivably trite.
November 30, 2012Too grisly for kids, or at least their ticket-buying parents. At the same time, the bouncy musical numbers with their contorted rhymes are unlikely to be embraced by any self-respecting Goth teen.
August 18, 2012The Suicide Shop is darkly drawn comedy taken to uncomfortable lengths (and, parents, it's definitely not a film for the whole family).
