Critic Reviews for Promised Lands

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (2)

  • The confusions and obscurities of the central debate are the more unfortunate, since Susan Sontag elsewhere shows an effective metaphorical grasp of how communities under such pressures are sustained and reconstructed.

  • Sontag's true talent was for the printed word; behind the camera, her limitations come more harshly to light.

    November 17, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The movie does not advertise its alliances, and Sontag's position is pretty thoroughly hidden in the folds of her imagery.

    February 2, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Not only does the film have a fine eye for visual detail, it also breaks new ground by allowing two main speakers to carry on an antiphonal debate that weaves its way through the entire fabric.

    July 28, 2020 | Full Review…
  • ...a reminder of a time when a noted writer and intellectual was willing to take the risk of working in a medium in which she had no training and minimal experience...

    July 8, 2011 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • ...Sontag was enough of an artist to know that she was present in a crucible-moment, and that if she just pointed her camera in the right direction, history would do the rest.
