There's an art to ambiguity -- there really is... Left to their own devices, viewers will fill in the blanks, but when the movie starts filling them in itself, you have to wonder about the mismatch.

While Portman does outshine everyone and everything on screen and though she certainly gets credit for making the résumé sacrifice in the spirit of embracing her heritage, Free Zone does nothing for her in return

Without much effort you can imagine the corkboard littered with index cards mapping out the political clashes this cast is asked to act out in their robotic interactions.

Much of it is labored and overemphatic.

A rambling road movie with noble intentions and an excess of speechifying.

The elder actresses simmer as they warily interact, but the dialogue is more schematic than dramatic...

Austin Chronicle

The milieu he chooses -- essentially one long, queerly prosaic car ride to nowhere -- robs the film of much of its dramatic force.

Portman and the audience are stranded in the middle, on the outside looking in, with nothing to do and patience increasingly wearing thin.

A minor movie on a major subject, a drama with an almost unbearable lightness.

The movie -- a metaphor for the tangled, impossible state of Israeli/Palestinian relations -- only intermittently clicks.

...never seems to gain much emotional traction throughout its meandering female road trip, despite some provocative subject matter.

Shot mostly in close-ups, it's a fascinating road movie with an absurdist allegorical finale.

Without fail, Gitai's determination to churn everything into metaphoric mud prevails.

Free Zone has a somewhat challenging narrative made more problematic by the difficulty involved in caring about the characters.

Too slight as a metaphor for the larger catastrophe of the Mideast, too preachy to work as an emotionally compelling drama.

Much of the dialogue is didactic and pedantic. And when not didactic and pedantic, it's plodding and dull.

Maybe being stuck in the car is supposed to give you that claustrophobic feeling that you're in the middle of this, but it feels like a low-budget home movie from a vacation you wouldn't want to take.

Despite dealing with a journey, this confused and confusing movie seems to go nowhere.

A vague and underdeveloped story that makes a tired point about the ability of female relationships to rise above hatred and conflict.
