All or Nothing
Provided by Metacritic.com
An exhilarating movie about sadness and renewal.
New York Post
Leigh's uncanny ability to mine emotional truth packs the usual punch. And the trademark flashes of humor sprinkled throughout ease the bleakness of the landscape.
San Francisco Chronicle
Leigh doesn't sentimentalize these tragic, dead-end lives but allows his characters to be ugly and stupid, to make horrendous mistakes. Sometimes they're laughable, and yet there's never the sense that Leigh is mocking them.
Leigh isn't breaking new ground, but he knows how a daily grind can kill love. Strong stuff.
The wealth of behavioral detail and observational humor make for some rewarding drama that will resonate with many viewers.
The A.V. Club
It's a hard-won comfort, found here over a bleak stretch of days, but All Or Nothing makes it look like the best life has to offer.
Grueling, heavy-handed, and surprisingly insight-free. For once, a gaggle of Leigh characters hasn't jelled beyond the level of its cast's conceits.
Will probably appeal only to the most committed of Leigh fans.
Wall Street Journal
This feelbad movie makes you glad when it's over.
New York Magazine (Vulture)
The empathy never lifts off -- never becomes poetry. It doesn't help that Leigh indulges his unfortunate habit of larding the soundtrack with draggy, mournful music, heavy on the cello.
