Critic Reviews for Under Milk Wood
The images that Director Andrew Sinclair has added to his film adaptation do not complement Thomas' language; they detract from it.
Writer-director Andrew Sinclair has a wonderful feel for his material, and a happy hand in matching it to its setting.
Too many words, I'm convinced, for the screen. It's not simply the quantity of words, though. It's also their ornateness. They overflow the ears and get into the eyes.March 23, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
The winning film of the moment is Under Milk Wood, Andrew Sinclair's beautiful screen adaptation of the Dylan Thomas play, a triumph of visualization of the verbal visions and vignettes the poet created.June 12, 2020 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Under Milk Wood
Mar 19, 2010Beautiful settings and a game cast are about the only things this has going for it. The kind of film that killed Liz and Dick's careers in the late 60's-early 70's.jay n Super Reviewer
Nov 24, 2008It is an ensemble piece for the most part, so don't expect an abundance of screen time from the three leads. As much as I hate to say it (with a cast like this) this one's not really about the acting...It's more about the writing of Dylan Thomas and the quirky beauty of the Welsh seaside, brought to life here with his words and some wonderful imagery. Not suitable for everyone's tastes I'll admit, but if you enjoy clever writing (and can understand sometimes thick Welsh accents) you are in for a treat.Robert C Super Reviewer
