Audience Reviews for Columbus

  • Jan 15, 2018
    The indie cinema has gained another masterful director and this is right on the top of my choices for 2017. I stumbled onto this film by mistake but found the critical acclaim not an easy thing to ignore. The film is wonderfully shot with a filmmaker beginning his career with something most studio filmmakers could only dream to make. The film never betrays the characters with a forced storyline that didn't fit, it's just a true film with interesting characters attempting to discover themselves. I'm happy to say this is one of the best films of 2017 in my books. 15/01/2018.

    A wonderfully assured debut from Kogonada. Not only is the movie filled with humor and insight but its also awash with fantastic shots. How John Cho never found a consistent career as a credible romantic lead is beyond me.
