Another Earth Reviews

Glenn Dunks
Trespass

Buried within Another Earth's framework is a wonderful sci-fi movie, but Cahill and Marling have unfortunately set it amongst this otherwise drab and predictable human drama.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

The wildly improbable set-up is merely the jumping off point for an exploration of grief, guilt and redemption

PopMatters

I didn't hate Another Earth so much as I found it to have begun with a fascinating sci fi premise only to produce, ultimately, a conventional relationship film.

Another Earth occasionally slips into chin-stroking pretention, but it flies the flags for indies with ideas bigger than their budgets.

Movie Talk

Another Earth doesn't fully come off - the slow pace stops it achieving escape velocity - but the intriguing ideas and Marling's touching performance make it a promising debut.

Laramie Movie Scope

A movie about our unending desire for second chances, no matter how rarely they happen.

IGN DVD

The science of this science fiction tale is about as wobbly as the rest of the picture. It's the dramatic punches and solid performances from the leads that keep this one afloat.

Common Sense Media

Marling... and Cahill teamed up to write this screenplay, cleverly weaving a science-fiction element... into the drama. This is most welcome, since the movie's main plot is pretty creaky.

Movie Metropolis

As an aftermath character drama, it's superb; as sci-fi, it stumbles.

The way the sci-fi aspect is always in the background may make you try to second-guess the script, but the ending works - mostly because its as underplayed as the rest of the movie.

7M Pictures

Existing on a ludicrous pretense and masquerading as a daring piece of fiction, this becomes nothing more than an utterly trite kitchen sink drama.

Birmingham Mail

The little-known but very attractive [Brit] Marling certainly gives a very good performance, ( ... ) and perhaps it's her career that will really rocket after this.

Observer [UK]

The film moves as slowly as a heavenly body and is as contrived as it sounds.

Flick Filosopher

I like the concept... Neat-o, if entirely outlandish... The problem is, screenwriters Brit Marling and Mike Cahill -- she also stars; he also directs -- don't know where to take it beyond that initial premise.

This is London

At its best, it is original and affecting, and one of the best American independent efforts at this year.

Both long-winded and profoundly unsatisfying.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

[A] haunting, thought-provoking film that, while lacking Independence Day-style action, brims with atmosphere and intelligence.

December 8, 2011

The sci-fi is merely a contributing factor to what is in effect a robust character study of salvation.

Guardian [UK]

A strange, gloomy, moderately acted damp squib of a movie.

Another Earth's central performances and ideas all impress, as does its pulsing, electronic soundtrack.
