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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

At the Movies (Australia)

All performances are actually very good, all the actors are beautiful. It's just a pity that the insistent beauty of the piece works against the emotion at the film's core.

A Single man is beautiful to look at, exquisitely told and possessed of a rare casual-paced charm that most other film makers take a career to evolve.

FILMINK (Australia)

A Single Man is considerably more than middle aged misery. It's a poignant examination of longing and grief and hope. It is a knockout.
