Wuthering Heights Reviews

John P. McCarthy
America Magazine

Intense and imagistic, sensual and rather salacious, this is a wild, fascinatingly bleak adaptation that seizes on the book's more lurid motifs.

Wuthering Heights is stunningly shot and beautifully acted. It puts you inside the minds of Cathy and Heathcliff in a way no other adaptation has done before.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Cuts beneath the romantic accretion of decades of movie and TV adaptations to penetrate the dark heathen heart of Emily Bronte's 1847 novel.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Most of what's here is interesting enough to be valuable on its own right without quite managing to be "good".

Arnold drastically pares back dialogue and exposition, telling the classic tale of passion and revenge with probing, harshly sensual camera work and a minimum of sentimentality.

The atmosphere is vivid but the romance is not.

Your enjoyment of the film will depend on your appreciation of the troubling and brutal nature of the source material.

...almost unbearably sensual - and not only in a sexual way.

Arnold doesn't merely adapt Bronte's story but retells it in her own style, creating a film that can be frustratingly languid to start but becomes mesmerizing as it progresses.

Arnold has been successful in reimagining the story's archetypal emotions in the story, bringing it closer to its passionate elements.

Alive with texture--sensations and noises, fur and breezes, accentuating both slow-moving stillness and the perception of the now.

Arnold's film reinvents Brontė's 1847 tragedy as if it had never been filmed before, from the damp ground up.

The results are often obtuse and self-consciously arty. But the movie is also frequently engrossing, sucking the viewer into the emotional landscape of these star-crossed lovers.

Arnold ... has put her stamp on Emily Brontė's 19th-century novel Wuthering Heights, but it's a smudged and imperfect stamp, to be sure.

October 20, 2012

Bearing about as much resemblance to the famous 1939 film as chalk does to cheese, Arnold employs the jagged, realist style that defined her excellent films Red Road (2006) and Fish Tank (2009) to great effect.

While director Arnold captures the semi-barbaric violence, rough beauty and rustic splendor of her setting and period, her use of nonprofessional actors in many roles detracts from the story's power.
