Critic Reviews for Canopy

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (6)

  • A brave experiment in stripped-down, visceral filmmaking, writer-director Aaron Wilson's World War II drama "Canopy" is ultimately upended by its minimalist conceit.

  • While not much is said in the Australian director Aaron Wilson's small-scale first feature, "Canopy," the film conveys volumes about war and humanity.

    Aug 28, 2014 | Full Review…
  • This is a film that eschews epic battle scenes and carnage to delve into the quieter, no less terrifying, moments of waiting and watching.

  • To the suddenly white-hot adventure subgenre of one or two souls alone against nature... add the more modestly scaled but no less absorbing wartime survival adventure "Canopy."

  • Much like his fly-boyflyboy underdog in the opening sequence, Wilson simply can't stick the landing.

  • The plot is so perfunctory it's hard to gauge the intended meanings when the hero crosses paths with a Chinese counterpart (Mo Tzu-Yi), the only other significant character.
