Critic Reviews for The Tower

  • In its stunted theatrical version, the second half is a sketchy digest of events that leaves you feeling cheated.

    November 6, 2014 | Full Review…
  • As the psychology of the characters hardly connects with their distinctive milieu, the film merely suggests a conventional family drama littered with empty pot-shots at governmental authority.

    November 3, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "The Tower" is a middle-of-the road kind of dramatic experience. It does a good job depicting the day-to-day struggles of life in The GDP while falling victim to obvious tricks of melodrama and a muddled execution.

    December 4, 2014 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • The Tower engages with its literary and historical bases without saying much about them.

    November 14, 2014 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • More interesting for its insights into East German society than as film art. Worth it for those trying to make sense of an end to the "End of History" nonsense defended by Francis Fukuyama.

    November 8, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The Tower offers solid performances and stories that hold interest, but its look is more that of TV movie than atmospheric evocation of a dreary historic period.
