Critic Reviews for Earthwork

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (6)

  • "Earthwork" takes an unexpected swerve but one that adds layers of meaning and emotion to a film that is as beautiful and wrenching as it is unassuming.

    May 19, 2011 | Rating: 4/5
  • Earthwork turns a potentially fascinating, infuriating story of failure into a dull, nave civics lesson.

    May 9, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Character actor John Hawkes, his rural demeanor tailor-made for hick pics, breaks through typecasting stereotypes in his nuanced portrayal of crop artist Stan Herd in Chris Ordal's ambitious Earthwork.

    April 29, 2011 | Full Review…
  • John Hawkes brings a laconic soulfulness to this ultra-low-key, only mildly involving tale of artistic pursuit.

    April 29, 2011 | Full Review…
  • It is a story that would have been better served by a documentary rather than the oddly uninvolving film it became.

    August 5, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • While we're grateful for Ordal's introduction to this atypical artist, the film's focus on the sentimental side of the story is at the expense of showing us enough of his terrestrial achievements.

Audience Reviews for Earthwork

  • Apr 24, 2011
    True story of a Kansas farmer commissioned to create a scrawling natural artwork in NYC has a certain earthy charm. John Hawkes is in fine form in the lead role, even though some supporting performances feel a bit stiff. It runs a bit on the schmaltzy side, but it's obviously a labor of love, and that goes a long way. Still, can't help but feel that this would have made a better documentary than a feature film.
