Tom Clift
Movie Mezzanine

David Lowery's richly woven, beautifully photographed Ain't Them Bodies Saints wears its dramatic sincerity on its sleeve.

Cinema Sight

Anchored by two strong performances from Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara.

Sam Bathe
Fan The Fire

An honest tale of love and desperation from a couple making ends meet, Ain't Them Bodies Saints might just have been Lowery's audition for the big leagues. And he nailed it.

Robert Roten
Laramie Movie Scope

This is a story about inevitable consequences, fate, predestination, a striving against insurmountable odds. This the kind of story that critics love, but many in the audience might find it a bit depressing.

December 17, 2013

Rapturously shot but ponderous crime Southern-set drama.

Full Review Source: 3AW | Original Score: 2.5/5

Thelma Adams
Yahoo! Movies

Like a bastard love child of Terrence Malick and Robert Altman, David Lowery's crime drama shuffles to its own drummer.

Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

There are real virtues to this movie; it's remarkably well crafted and beautifully shot (by Bradford Young). If it drifts a little too much toward romanticizing its tender outlaws, it's just following in the footsteps of the masters.

Travis Hopson

With a dark, storybook mood set firmly in the mode of Terrence Malick's Badlands, or perhaps even Andrew Dominik's The Assassination of Jesse James, Lowery flips the Bonnie & Clyde paradigm on its ear.

Eric Eisenberg

Armed with blistering performances, an engaging narrative and some stunning cinematography and direction, it may very well end up being one of the best of the year

Todd Jorgenson

The well-acted film is rich in visual texture and subtle details, and its deliberate pace rewards viewer patience.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Lyrical reverie of all feeling and no action.

Mike Scott

A Bonnie & Clyde-informed tale of passion amid the criminal class, it's a film of considerable visual beauty, even lyricism.

Full Review Source: Times-Picayune | Original Score: 3/5

September 20, 2013
John Serba

Even during its moments of unapologetic pastiche, David Lowery's Ain't Them Bodies Saints is an absorbing drama, nuanced and emotionally evocative.

Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall

The film has a dreamlike tone that's very, very sleepy. But it's also haunting and darkly moving.

Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Not perfect and its dense quality isn't for everyone, but for the things it does right, and the performances it elicits, it's still special.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

An outlaw saga of undying love distilled to its emotional essence, as if it were something to be inhaled or applied to the skin, to work at the level of the blood and bypass the cynical defenses of the intellect...

Mark Kermode
Observer [UK]

The astute use of folk and bluegrass defines the palette of this film as much as the acting or the cinematography.

Michael A. Smith

Beautifully presented and skillfully acted, "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" is a small, solid drama featuring strong performances and picture post card photography

Full Review Source: MediaMikes | Original Score: 4.5/5

Graham Young
Birmingham Mail

If you're in the mood to pay homage to the 'new wave' of directors of the 1970s, instead of sitting through the latest in a long line of superhero movie sequels, this should be richly rewarding.

Full Review Source: Birmingham Mail | Original Score: 3/5

Charlotte O'Sullivan
This is London

Lowery falls back on a number of clichés in his indie romance-cum-Western, drowning the actors in melancholy sunshine and letting them mumble like mad. What he gets right are the characters.
