Capital Times (Madison, WI)

The many windows into different lives, capturing moments humorous and sad, ordinary and momentous, build into quite a moving film.

It's best to simply ignore its corporate branding and accept the spirit of deeper understanding and celebration of the project's intention.

FILMINK (Australia)

With director Kevin Macdonald finding a rhythm among the myriad footage submitted, this honest, funny and touching doco is an incredible achievement.

You walk out with a good feeling, having seen a lot of humanity in the almost raw.

It's a feel-good movie in that sense, affirmative without being sentimental or exploitative.

Herald Sun (Australia)

Not all of this stuff will totally grip you with its urgency or relevance, but not a second of it (yes, even that fellow contemplating his laundry list) will wear out its welcome.

The clips add up to a poignant reminder of how much beauty there is in our world and its people.

Inevitably, the 90-minute film has a lot to live up to. And, by and large, it succeeds in its mandate.

Matt's Movie Reviews

While its intentions are pure and its goals often on mark with its presentation of a world both banal and spectacular, Life in a Day cannot help but delve into pretentious territory, creating an equally engrossing and frustrating viewing experience.

There is a cumulative effect of so many snapshots of life on earth, but it isn't meaningful so much as jumbled

Sometimes it soars, sometimes it flops. Worse still, it gets boring. Our fascination lies in the diversity of experience

Breaks all the established rules of filmmaking and storytelling, yet comes together as something that is unique, inspirational and occasionally profound.

Testifies to the remarkable, democratizing nature of cinema and the power of images seen and voices heard for the first time.

What I took away were some individual moments from people whose lives I wish had played out more.

What makes "Life in a Day" so compelling is how completely ordinary it is. There are no YouTube antics, no one is putting on a show. It's simply a collection of how people decided to spend one July day.

Give Macdonald and crew credit for picking out good, clear, telling contrasts, and not sweating potential heavy-handedness.

It's a remarkable achievement, creating something that is meaningful, sad, and often funny from the home movies of thousands of people around the world.

It's all familiar, for the most part, and it's all mildly interesting.

There are dull spots, as with any other day, yet "Life" aims to be, and occasionally is, like a YouTube-y "Our Town," giving a sense of what it is to be alive on planet Earth.
