June 22, 2013
This is a film about a man who doesn't speak to the world for 40 years, and once it comes time, the movie won't let him, or itself, shut up.

Basically, it's Hollywood slush dressed up as American Gothic.

Get Low's one saving grace is Murray's melancholic presence, which acts as a counterpoint to the rest of the film's desperate-to-be-loved banality.

1930s-set, treacle-pulsed snooze-'em-up.
January 20, 2011
Aaron Schneider's southern folk tale comes slathered in corn syrup, oozing its way towards a climax that's not so much big reveal as dying whimper.

(Duvall) unbalances what otherwise might be a delicate, sweetly comic movie about mortality and regret; sinking it with his flinty gravitas and careful inarticularaties.
August 28, 2010
Cobbled together from the Coen Brothers leftovers and sprinkled with a healthy dose of lax local color, Get Low argues for the cinematic value inherent in a consistent tone.
August 21, 2010
A very mild anecdote elongated into a venerated performer's hushed Oscar-night valedictory

,,,sits there inert on the screen expecting to be admired rather than actually creating an experience worthy of your admiration.
August 20, 2010
Schneider spends copious amounts of celluloid introducing us to characters with no real character arcs in service of an event that's not seen as much of an event at all.
August 11, 2010
Affable, warm, kinda boring
August 11, 2010
Overdirecting in the worst amateur fashion, Schneider hard-sells a quaint story to the point where this allegedly humble little movie feels like it's puffing out its chest all the time.
August 9, 2010
Modest to the point of nothingness, Aaron Schneider's debut feature Get Low mistakes simplicity for authenticity.
August 6, 2010
Instead of being good even without Duvall, Get Low is mediocre with Duvall.
August 5, 2010
Duvall adds sparkle with his cryptic decrepitude -- until that becomes as mannered and canned as the rest of the movie.
July 31, 2010
Poorly-directed and often drags while lacking palpable tension. Robert Duvall and Sissy Spacek's well-nuanced performances can't save it from sinking into a mostly forgettable, stale drama.
July 29, 2010
A sincere but gamey mixture of cornball sentimentality and faux-period (not to mention faux-regional) detail.
July 29, 2010
breaks through potential tedium with such consistency that he strings the movie along, threatening to make the whole thing work
July 29, 2010
It's got miracle-worker actors, but only a miracle-worker director could pull off this drivel.
July 28, 2010
Duvall is sleepwalking here, displaying none of the unsettling and deep-rooted vitality he brought to such recent films as We Own the Night and The Road.
