More Info:
  • Roger Ebert

    The ending is an explanation, but not a solution. For a solution we have to think back through the whole film, and now the visual style becomes a guide. It is an illustration of the way the materials of life can be shaped for the purposes of the moment.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Some people find this twisty and twisted psychological thriller arty and pretentious. I find it arty and provocative.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    Yet for a film so affectingly steeped in loss, resignation and the ghosts of memory, the revelation that pulls it all together, while satisfying and even touching, lacks emotional resonance.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    Despite the actors, the visuals and Forster's directorial swagger, the movie lacks impact.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    It's all very deep, but in a tricked-up, art-directed sort of way.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Stay is interesting, but it's hard to recommend to anyone but the small cadre of David Lynch devotees who will inhale anything with a whiff of similarity to their favorite auteur's scent.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    In Stay, the director, Marc Forster, fresh from "Finding Neverland," turns Manhattan into a nightmarish dreamscape and his characters into self-destructive ghosts.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Yet another variation on the theme of Ambrose Bierce's "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge." If you've read the short story, you'll see where things are going in no time flat; if you haven't and want to be surprised, don't look it up.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Ryan Devlin

    A quarter of the way through the film, it’s all just too much.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Stay is all dressed up with no place to go, an eye-popping exercise in lavish style unattached to any discernible content.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Forster should be commended for attempting something as daunting as the overreaching Stay, which despite all of its muddled logic and porous reality – or perhaps because of it – forces you to think, a genuine rarity these days.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Eventually I gave up on meaning and began instead to study the profuse imagery -- and also the flat characters and anchorless performances.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    With its flashy, pretentious visual effects, this is really a 98-minute dream sequence--though it's worth recalling that the most effective dream sequences tend to be only a few minutes long.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    If you're the kind of moviegoer who likes puzzling out the plots of insoluble movies, then by all means rush to see Stay, a great big blurry mess.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    There's really not much of an audience for this picture. The movie demands that its viewers put the fragmented images and information together like an intellectual jigsaw puzzle, but it never gives those viewers a good reason to do so.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ian Nathan

    The type of movie often described as a fever-dream: weird, offbeat, otherworldly… An experience that also coincides with feeling ill.

    Empire Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Forster and Benioff are able craftsmen who apparently thought it might be interesting to seal themselves into a narrative box with no way out. Sorry about that, guys -- I hope it was a growth experience. Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    It's become a tired cliché for characters in "serious" science-fiction movies not to realize they're dead or dying, but Stay as a film doesn't seem to realize that it's dead from the outset, an unconvincing automaton grimly going through the motions.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rachel Aviv

    In Marc Forster's humorless thriller, going insane is an exciting, luxurious affair. People suffer stylishly; depressives are angry and dirty; they make art, carry guns, and live in magnificent houses.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    The final twist does more to unravel what's come before than to tie it all together, making what's come before feel like a cosmopolitan goose chase.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    An ultra-arty "The Sixth Sense" that deliberately inhibits comprehension of the story until the very end -- and arguably continues to inhibit it even then -- pic features certifiably talented people on both sides of the camera collaborating on a project that probably shouldn't have been undertaken in the first place.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    If "The Sixth Sense" was a bad movie redeemed by its surprise ending, Marc Forster's Stay is a seemingly good movie leading to a devastating letdown.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Gosling's been better elsewhere but delivers an adequate performance. McGregor and Watts seem baffled most of the time, as well they might be. Forster keeps us from drifting off with inventive camerawork; in this case, that's like saying a hideous suit has well-stitched lapels.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    A steaming compost heap of high-art pretense and half-cocked psychoanalysis that almost makes you sorry Nicolas Roeg isn't making pictures anymore.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Marc Forster takes a maximalist approach to this mumbo jumbo, which means that in addition to lots of wacky angles, shiny surfaces, seemingly endless stairs, and sets of twins, triplets and quadruplets, he deploys the unsettling vision of three talented actors - Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts and Ryan Gosling - straining credulity and neck tendons in the service of serious claptrap.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    That mind-bending, mystical business was better handled in such films as 1990's "Jacob's Ladder."

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    A trite, incoherent and pretentious bomb.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Neva Chonin

    Visuals can't fill a spiritual vacuum, and Stay remains a pretty package that's empty on the inside.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Neither thrilling nor psychological, but it's chicly shot and edited and is pretty much art-directed to death.

    Boston Globe Full Review
