Get Low Reviews

May 24, 2011
Get Low is a handmade kind of film. Its ambitions are modest, but fully attained. I rarely use the words ''go see it'', but I hope a lot of people do.
February 4, 2011
Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek and Bill Murray lend their mega-watt talents to a undemanding movie. Beautifully shot but let down by an underwhelming final act.

Sweet and gentle and occasionally makes you crave a catnap.
January 24, 2011
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.
January 20, 2011
Get Low is an unexceptional film, but Duvall's presence elevates it beyond all expectation
January 18, 2011
That the finale ends up being trite is a shame, but the long, gentle jaunt to arrive there is a pleasurable one.

The creaky foreshadowing is a big problem, and the movie runs in place for most of its second half, though Duvall manages to pull it back on track with his climactic soliloquy, which sobers and silences the carnivalesque funeral party.
August 20, 2010
Eccentric and ultimately touching.
August 18, 2010
It contains yet another pitch-perfect performance by Robert Duvall, who has given more great performances over the age of 60 than any actor, probably ever.
August 13, 2010
At this stage of his career you could watch Duvall mow the lawn and be transfixed and enraptured.
August 13, 2010
It affords Duvall a terrific role, harking back to his screen debut as one of literature's great loners, Boo Radley.
August 13, 2010
Even Spacek, whose role is less than challenging, is given space to explore it -- and Murray, Black and Duvall have rarely been better.
August 12, 2010
It's Duvall, spooky, sly, and sad, who makes all the props and the plot twists seem real.
August 6, 2010
Worth seeing for Duvall's performance alone and it heralds the arrival of a very interesting and creative young director in Schneider.
August 6, 2010
It's Duvall and Murray who make Get Low a small, wonderful thing.
August 6, 2010
Instead of being good even without Duvall, Get Low is mediocre with Duvall.
August 6, 2010
Duvall is a true American original.
August 5, 2010
Duvall's pretty much the whole show here and he's a sight to see.
August 5, 2010
This film, calm but full of feeling, relays an intriguing story brought to life by some beautiful actors.
