There are also more reviews for The Disappearance of Alice Creed coming in from TIFF:
The Disappearance…will appeal largely to aficionados of grungy thrillers full of double-crosses and battles of wit. Cult status would appear to be firmly in this film’s grasp.
The Disappearance is more of a verbal battle than a physical one, preferring barbed dialogue to clichéd gunplay. This, of course, requires relatable performances, and all three leads do strong work. Compston nails Danny’s slippery desperation, making it impossible to ever know when he’s telling the truth.
