- "Of course, no matter how beguilingly entertaining it is to watch "Stillwater" drift away from the movie you thought it would be, you know that it's only a matter of time before the devil gets his due."
- "McCarthy pushes the thriller narrative in directions more extreme and harrowing than plausible, bringing Bill and Allison’s story to an unexpected point of reckoning."
- Los Angeles Times
- "From one vantage point, Stillwater may just be a sentimental and lurid riff on the infamous Amanda Knox case. But I think McCarthy has something bigger in mind, which he pokes at intriguingly throughout his movie's considerable sprawl."
