Very Good "A few economical lines of dialogue establish the depth of
field in Auto Focus, Paul Schrader's artful, rigorous, and damned
depressing morality tale fashioned out of one murdered man's real-life
James Berardinelli, Internet Critic
Good "Auto Focus is loaded with sex and nudity, as might be
expected from a film with this subject matter, but Schrader manages to keep
things at a level where we never sense a whiff of exploitation. There's as much
here (no more, no less) as is necessary for the story to be properly told.''
Roger Ebert Full
Excellent "It seems to be 100 percent of Bob Crane's battle; there
is nothing there except likability--no values, no self-awareness, no judgment,
no perspective, not even an instinct for survival. Just likability, and the need
to be liked in a sexual way every single day.''

Very Good "...this ultra-stylish film is far more interested in
exploring its own central metaphor — the camera — than the forensic minutia
of the mystery.''
