Critic Reviews for The Dream of Light

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (1)

  • In its own minimalist way it becomes a thoughtful, delicate inquiry into the essence of the artistic process, and a tribute to the beauty and mutability of nature. Mr. Erice's film is much bigger than it may appear to be.

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 4.5/5
  • More analytical than contemplative, never less than straightforward, Dream of Light makes no showy bid for the sublime.

    April 18, 2002
  • Any opportunity that's presented to us so that we can enjoy a masterpiece of the caliber of this film is welcomed. [Full review in Spanish]

  • The Cinematheque Ontario's international panel voted it the best film of the 1990s, which can only lead me to question what they were smoking at the time.

  • Any summary of Spanish director Victor Erice's captivating documentary would sound more like a warning than the enthusiastic recommendation it merits.

Audience Reviews for The Dream of Light

  • Aug 14, 2008
    The complacent portrait of Lopez dwells in the silence and state of fine art retaining the elaborate "auteur" detail which makes Erice's study of conversation,nature,intoxicating feeling such a beloved textbook on time's benefits.Perhaps the simple stuff and as naive as it sounds,just watch those two old men reiterating the past,their affections and the still images of youth.
