Critic Reviews for Columbus
The director's greatest strength lies in creating a mood. "Columbus" is melancholy without being morose, and talky without forced cleverness.
What's remarkable about this wondrously assured debut is that technique never overwhelms feeling, in part because Kogonada makes the two seem inextricably, harmoniously linked.
Almost startling in how assured it is, synthesizing beautiful, controlled images with story and character.
The depth of emotion the film stirred up surprised me. I got so involved in these two people's lives. I cared about them. I liked eavesdropping on their conversations.
A minimalist film like Columbus depends almost entirely on the shading of the characters and the depths of the performances. By that metric, it's a too-delicate creature, tickling and piquing instead of fully thrusting us into the realm of feelings.
