All Critics (6) | Top Critics (6)

For fans of the canon, "South Riding" is "Masterpiece" comfort food, enjoyable enough in the moment, but melting away to nothing but sugar and fat by morning.

Few brain cells were harmed during the making of this tiresome show.

Too many so-so subplots detract from the more compelling key characters.

It might be just what we need: a mild astringent for those suffering from an excess of pomp.

South Riding" creates memorable characters, particularly Burton and Carne, and it's beautifully filmed.

These heroes, these themes, have been gone so long they feel new-recharged with drama and vitality, all delivered by a supremely skilled cast.
