Critic Reviews for A Will For The Woods

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (3)

  • The movie feels entirely promotional, provoking separate, unanswered questions about green medicine too.

    August 21, 2014 | Full Review…
  • It's possible to admire the four directors' unflinching depiction of the dying process, but the film is mostly unilluminating and grim - not least because almost all of the deaths discussed are untimely.

    August 14, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Less an introduction to the green-burial movement than a portrait of one man who embraced it after being diagnosed with a terminal illness, A Will for the Woods is more sentimental than journalistic.

    August 13, 2014 | Full Review…
  • While the film also captures many private, sometimes heartbreaking scenes, it takes a lot of time to make its simple point.

    August 12, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Will for the Woods intriguingly explores this growing world of green burials and some of the key figures in it. But at heart, it's Clark Wang's story.

    March 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • n the film's sobering final act, we get to see the man's beliefs put to practice...fulfill[ing] his wishes--including using this film to share his philosophy with the world.

    September 12, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
