Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
An atmospheric Argentine thriller starring Viggo Mortensen in twin roles (literally), Everybody Has a Plan is in the vein of, if not on the same plane as, Michelangelo Antonioni's "The Passenger."

Chicago Sun-Times

Its chief virtue is its lead performance, in which twin brothers are played by a promising new Argentinian actor named Viggo Mortensen.

Mortensen is on top form - twice over - but while the noir mood gathers like a black cloud, the story frustrates.

Everybody does indeed have a plan in Ana Piterbarg’s ponderous Argentine noir – problem is, they’re all terrible.

Mr. Mortensen keeps you watching, even when the movie’s storytelling underwhelms. But Everybody Has a Plan is less about story than about texture and atmosphere. They stay with you, as does the haunted visage of Agustín, drifting on the delta waters.

Ana Piterbarg's handsome, if uninvolving, film privileges mood over narrative and dumb brooding over character.

indieWIRE

By Eric Kohn
Eventually suffers from a lack of new ideas beyond its initial premise that finds the two brothers inadvertently swapping roles. Once that happens, the movie takes one bland twist after another.
