Critics' reviews
  • "Doubt: It's certain to be one of the year's best. (...) Doubt strikes a deeper chill in our hearts than the creepiest thriller. (...) Rating: ★★★½ (out of four)."
  • "Between Heaven and Earth, Room for Ambiguity. (...) The air is thick with paranoia in Doubt, but nowhere as thick, juicy, sustained or sustaining as Meryl Streep's performance."
  • "Doubt has exact and merciless writing, powerful performances and timeless relevance. It causes us to start thinking with the first shot, and we never stop. Think how rare that is in a film. (...) Rating: ★★★★ (out of four)."
