  • Watching 63 Up as a stand-alone endeavor may not seem remarkable. In fact, it may even be a little boring. But watching it as part of the larger picture imbues it with immediacy and power.

  • There is a touching universality to these life stories, which at this point have a lulling near-sameness...

  • At first glance, 21 Up played as somewhat of a novelty. That was over forty years ago. Today, it stands as one of cinema's greatest achievements, a use of the medium that's at once blatantly logical and profoundly affecting.

  • This film and its predecessors are a mirror to all.

  • Kim Horton skillfully weaves together clips from past films - the participants' lives inside a fishbowl literally flashing before our eyes - and both Apted's narration and his gently needling, off-camera interrogations give you all the context you need.

  • Because of this sense of an approaching end-in a world which, in any case, is tending to see the future in apocalyptic terms-63 Up may be the most revealing episode yet.

Audience Reviews for 63 Up

  • Jan 28, 2020
    With Its utter uniqueness into the human and emotional qualities of everyday life , the Up series should be considered the Rosetta Stone of reality film. Long before the Loud family, "Boyhood" and the continuous roll out of the bio-pics, Apted and the gang continue to explore the English class system in "63 Up." Am a little concerned that this may be the last Up we get. Rest in peace Lynn Johnson. (1-26-20)
