Glenn Dunks
Trespass

Ford's film is an addict for prettiness and in the process resembles an excessively over-designed photo shoot rather than a film.

Digital Spy

What keeps the film anchored is the growing unease that Firth exudes in quiet, crushing waves. He's always at his best, single-handed.

...offers a raw view of the gay experience that has nothing to do with sex.

Tom Ford's directorial debut A Single Man is unspeakably gorgeous to behold. From the glorious cinematography to the impossibly beautiful actors and actresses; no frame is wasted on anything even close to ugliness.

Uruguay Total

El diseñador Tom Ford debuta como director de cine con el retrato íntimo e introspectivo de un personaje en crisis existencial. Una película sensible y madura, si bien peca de cierto exceso de esteticismo.

Laramie Movie Scope

Director Tom Ford intends this film to be a celebration of life, but it misses the mark. The balance of this sorrow-laden film is too heavily weighted towards the depression side of the scales for that. Great performance by Firth, though.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Tom Ford's feature directorial debut, A Single Man, is a bold first step, both visually ambitious and unapologetic about its point-of-view.

A patient and never less than gripping character study that serves as a reminder of the emotional intimacy achievable on film. [Blu-ray]

The singular sensation of A Single Man is Colin Firth.

[Firth] the sturdiest reason for seeing this movie. He'll move you unless you're made of rock.

There's not much to this film, other than watching Firth act, and that's not enough to justify the price of admission.

July 6, 2010

Not only is the film meticulously designed, choreographed, and costumed, but everything is photographed (by young Spanish cinematographer Eduard Grau) with an eye towards conveying story and meaning via well-thought-out use of color.

Be it colour, composition or movement %u2013 Ford seems to have a natural ability to use the camera to create a vivid but tasteful milieu that works as both an eye-catching palette and an expressive representation of grief.

The movie is very much like the character -- reserved but rich in detail.

The movie wasn't so much directed as it was designed.

Linda Cook
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

A somber character study of a gay man int he early 1960s, 'A Single Man' is a drama that features a remarkable, subdued performance by Colin Firth.

Screenwize

Elegant and stylish, this is more of a showpiece for style than an emotional journey, with fashion-designer turned film director Tom Ford overwhelming Colin Firth's performance of a bereft man with some impeccably beautiful but detached imagery.

It has been so long since Firth applied his undoubted talent to a film that truly warranted it, and he rises to the challenge in impressive fashion.
