Critic Reviews for Echo Park

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

  • An unimaginative drama that never quite gains momentum.

  • It will be interesting to see what Marsalis can do with a more developed story and perhaps even darker material, because it's clear she has a way with both actors and the camera.

  • Catalina Aguilar Mastretta's script is free of speechifying and delivers just enough story line to keep a plot in motion; words are rarely used when expressions can better convey feelings.

  • The film's ideals of a respectful, caring suitor and a diverse utopian community with a chill vibe don't necessarily register as an escapist fantasy.

  • Echo Park doesn't circumvent expectations, but it's worth a watch for those small moments of two humans relating to each other on a realistic plane.

  • The minimal narrative of Echo Park may not be engaging enough for some, but overall this is a gently poignant film.

    Okay, it rambles along and goes nowhere, but I actually quite liked this one. Nice performances and very much like real life. It wasn't the ending I hoped for, but it didn't feel contrived either.
