Critic Reviews for Fire Song

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Cree/Métis writer-director Adam Garnet Jones has crafted a personal story with a strong aboriginal cast.

May 13, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Jones's Fire Song lays a heavy weight of despair on its thin frame, and the pressure bears down most heavily on his non-professional cast.

May 13, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The gloomy mood is wonderfully portrayed with Garnett Jones's selection of shots of the desolate plains of Northern Ontario. The colour palette of dark greys and greens reaffirms the emotional state of the main characters.

November 3, 2018 | Rating: 6 | Full Review…

It's confident, fresh cinema that rarely falters.

July 20, 2017 | Full Review…

A sensitive portrait, but often a wretched one, of young people at crossroads, set on a Canadian First Nations reservation but with resonance far beyond.

November 8, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The final half-hour, energized by Martin's tightly wound performance, is emotionally involving and unpredictable.
