    The Hollywood Reporter Kirk Honeycutt

    Beat has a moody, furtive quality that jibes perfectly with the perplexed life of a pianist-gangster.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    The Beat That My Heart Skipped lacks the screw-loose existential vibrance of "Fingers," yet it teases out a romantic underside to the original I never quite knew was there.

    Chicago Tribune Michael Wilmington

    It's a thriller that comes at you with gut-clutching ferocity, spewing blood and sex, shaking you up and scrambling your responses.

    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    There are remakes and there are remakes. I don't want to belabor the flaws and sexual excesses of the original; its great strength was its explosive energy. Still, this one investigates the unfulfilled potential of the first one so thoroughly, and develops it so audaciously, that it qualifies as a brilliant reinvention.
