Film Comment Magazine

It's too easily satisfying, too traditionally well-made to be an honest portrait of dissatisfaction.

From the opening montage alone, it's clear that Australian director Kieran Darcy-Smith plans to play his cards close to the vest in this maddeningly underwritten thriller/domestic-drama hybrid.

Stories built around a mystery can have a difficult time creating a satisfying answer, and this picture is no exception ...

A slickly made but unfortunately distracted debut.

Doesn't lack for furrowed-brow seriousness, but ultimately the depths being explored aren't nearly as incisive or startling as its makers think.

Kieran Darcy-Smith's film inspires a deluge of possibilities and provocative thoughts in its audiences' heads, but languid pacing undermines the too-simple and ultimately too-conventional revelations that wrap up its simmering mysteries.

Though much of the film is overcooked and overwrought, it's well-played, and writer-director Kieran Darcy-Smith keeps us guessing, and watching.

A dull drama about domestic squabbling that hopes to be mistaken for a thriller.

Wish You Were Here is best enjoyed by fans of the actors involved or "strangers in a strange land" flicks; it'll be less satisfying to those looking for drama/mystery.

It's a vacation in which the guide book has been purposefully reordered and organized to disguise what would have been much more interesting told straightforward.

The time you spend trying to piece together a mystery that is presented as a teasing puzzle inevitably diverts you from deeper identification with characters who are not particularly sympathetic to begin with.

Wish You Were Here is an excellent idea for a State Department video, to remind travelers the obvious things not to do when visiting an unfamiliar country. As a drama, it feels a little empty.

Whatever sentiments the title 'Wish You Were Here' evokes in you, flush them. Here is no lighthearted vacation comedy but, instead, a well-acted "psychological thriller" with few thrills but much angst.

This is one of those puzzle movies that's frustrating in pieces, and underwhelming once it's all fit together.

For a long time the nonlinear structure dilutes the impact of a bunch excellent performances, led by Edgerton's seasick glare.

Hypnotically watchable but badly flawed by a shrug of an ending.

Even at its slowest, the insinuating "Wish You Were Here" keeps its grip, like a dream you just can't shake.

The performances are raw, real and beautiful by the three leads Edgerton, Price and Palmer. And it's a fantastic debut from director Kieran Darcy-Smith whose poetic compositions compliment the thematic contrasts of the unfolding story.

A brilliant Australian film that examines Australians abroad, relationships and the consequences of having a bulletproof attitude when travelling.
