Far Side of the Moon Reviews

Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall

Strikingly visual and thoughtfully moving, and also ponderous and pretentious.

In essence, Lepage has remade 2001: A Space Odyssey without the Kubrick film's sense of spiritual curiosity.

As an actor, Lepage is a captivating presence, easily transforming from one sibling to the other. And as a director, he braids the personal and the universal with dexterity, turning theatrical intimacy into cinematic ecstasy.

Lepage is such an interesting camera subject, you stick with this dreamy rumination even when the going gets arch.

It takes about 28 days for the moon to orbit the earth and approximately 60 minutes for Far Side of the Moon to reveal its full splendor.

Lepage's films are always reflections of a curious mind, which constantly puzzles at the absurdity of a life where science, politics and the arts compete for attention with the mundane existence of daily life.

While the slow pace is a burden on some of what happens...,there is a beating pulse in "Far Side of the Moon." It's as wondrous as the imaginative tales we all read as kids.

The Far Side of the Moon is a master class on turning a talky, one-man play into a visual delight.

Reworking his own raw material, Lepage spins a rich, moving film that acknowledges humanity's power to break out of Earth's daily gravity; in the process, he leaves audiences floating.

Lepage brings a prodigious talent for startling, interwoven imagery to bear on a story already laden with metaphorical possibilities.

In this gorgeous, high-definition DV drama, its stage roots are obscured by arresting images in this tale of outer space, sibling rivalry, and one man's struggle to find his destiny.

| Original Score: 3/4

Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide's Movie Guide

Lepage maintains a leisurely pace and lets the narrative wander, but ultimately lands on the right side of the line between contemplative noodling and aimless navel-gazing, ending with an image that's simultaneously melancholy and playful.
