Critic Reviews for Burn Country

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (6)

  • Mr. Rains, Ms. Leo and Mr. Franco are all so interesting that you wish they had more to bite into. But the film has a transfixing quality nonetheless.

    December 8, 2016 | Full Review…
  • There's plenty of intelligence and atmosphere in play here - Adam Newport-Berra's fluid, textured cinematography is a standout, and the performances, especially Rains' charismatic portrait of someone scarred yet innocent, are engaging.

    December 8, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The performances are first rate, particularly Rains' work in the lead role.

    December 7, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • More of an interesting thesis than a compelling drama, but it's anchored by Rains' sturdy performance as a man whose open-minded curiosity about his new home disengages his natural wariness, for both better and worse.

    December 7, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • The movie - at first scrappy and strange but an increasingly tough sit as it goes - never fixes its gaze on any singularly compelling idea.

    December 6, 2016 | Full Review…
  • For a film that warns against believing in a mirage, Burn Country seems all too comfortable perpetuating one.

    December 4, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
