Critic Reviews for Freaks
The fatal flaw of Freaks is that Lipovsky and Stein's tantalizing approach gives way to mundane results, as the questions raised by their screenplay are considerably more interesting than any of the answers that follow.
[Kolker's] semi-improvised performance couldn't be any more authentic and she's well matched with Hirsch, drawing on his own parental experience, as her conflicted and overprotective father.
A tight yarn whose structural cleverness makes it easy to ignore the deeply familiar story at its core.
The film doesn't earn many points for originality, but writer- directors Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein show just enough low-budget gusto to suggest that they might have a future as B-movie mavens.
