    • Excerpt: The quest for sexual fulfillment of a lesbian housewife.
  • Roderick Heath @ This Island Rod
    • Excerpt: Passon’s achievement here is noteworthy but uneven.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Presenting an upper-middle-class midlife crisis could lean towards “Concussion” being a First-World Problem Movie or the situation that Abby puts herself into would seem absurd, but “Concussion” is more nuanced, humorously incisive, and nonjudgmental than either preconceived notion.
  • Danny King @ Paste Magazine
    • Excerpt: Where its representational qualities are commendable and unique, its more specific narrative features are vague, imprecise and often downright implausible.
  • [New – 5/22/14] | Matthew McKernan @ FilmWhinge
    • Excerpt: Concussion is happy to be just another quiet, inoffensive drama about an unfulfilled middle class woman, one that problematically avoids addressing in any depth the complicated issues concerning prostitution in the present day.
  • R. Kurt Osenlund @ Slant Magazine
  • Don Simpson @ Smells Like Screen Spirit
    • Excerpt: What I find most interesting about Concussion is that Abby seems to be in the right, but why is Abby so different than her male predecessors of cinema?
  • Josh Spiegel @ Sound on Sight
    • Excerpt: Much like its lead character, Concussion is a film slightly crippled by the fact that it refuses to let anyone inside, to figure out what’s really on its mind.
