  • Colossal Youth demands to be seen more than once.

    June 18, 2012 | Full Review…
  • You need a bit of patience with director Pedro Costa.

    July 6, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Frustrating perhaps, but hypnotic if you can stick with it.

    October 18, 2008 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • If you are able to slow down to Colossal Youth's deliberate rhythms, there's a strong chance you'll be dragged in by the film's undertow and resurface completely mesmerized.

    January 18, 2008 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Beautifully photographed, the elliptical, often mysterious and wholly beguiling film Colossal Youth looks and sounds as if it were made on another planet.

    August 8, 2007 | Rating: 4.5/5
  • Eventually, across the monumental boredom, mesmerizing, nearly still images and poetic rhythms of this 155-minute film, something like pathos or meaning can be sensed, if not really apprehended.
