August 5, 2010
After you get to a certain point with an actor, you don't much care what he does, you just want to watch him doing it. So it is with Duvall and Murray.
August 3, 2010
A fine example of excellent filmmaking on a modest budget. Its story sticks with you after the credits roll, a testament to the power of a good tale simply told on the big screen.

Amid the tangled narrative that Felix has made of his life is a startlingly countercultural notion, almost foreign to Hollywood cinema: Love, by itself, is not enough.

Get Low is deftly played, and it rarely mislays its ambling charm...
July 30, 2010
The emotional mystery at the film's core is beautifully disseminated, and while what is revealed isn't a huge surprise it is so simple and poetic I was still deeply moved when truth finally hit the light of day.
July 30, 2010
These three pros take a story that could have been pure schmaltz and spin it into pure gold.
July 30, 2010
So richly and comfortably human that it hardly needs the melodramatic amplification of its end.

Schneider tells us the whole story right there, but Mr. Duvall, who's probably looking at another Oscar nomination next year, gives it a heart.
July 30, 2010
Schneider has fashioned a measured fable, witty and deeply felt, if at times tipping into melodrama.
July 30, 2010
Schneider, who began his career as a cinematographer, films the story beautifully, with particularly subtle and lovely lighting. And the movie has a heck of a cast.

A sincere but gamey mixture of cornball sentimentality and faux-period (not to mention faux-regional) detail.

So long as someone's making movies about stoic cranks with stubborn streaks, Robert Duvall will be able to find work.
July 29, 2010
With Duvall, you never see technique, but you always see a face. It's the best thing an actor can show the world; really, it's the only thing.
July 29, 2010
For a filmmaker who has worked mostly in contemporary settings in television, film, music videos and commercials, Schneider shows eyes and ears marvelously attuned to the past.
July 29, 2010
All you need to know is that Get Low puts Duvall and Murray in the same movie. Only a fool would want to miss that.
July 28, 2010
No matter how many wily old Southern coots and rascals Robert Duvall has played, he always finds a way to play another one and make him a fresh, unique presence.
July 28, 2010
Simple, straightforward and stirring without sentimentality, Get Low is a treasure.
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.
July 27, 2010
The stars are quite literally aligned for widespread critical approval of 'Get Low,' but the movie's aura of prestige hardly reflects the subpar reality.
July 27, 2010
Quiet and precise, it's a character drama that treats modesty as a virtue in and of itself.
