Despite their differences, the two men soon develop an unexpected bond while confronting racism and danger in an era of segregation.

  • Yet Farrelly and his cast deliver the cliches with such sincerity and good cheer that the film won me over anyway.

  • An enthusiastic and well-intentioned but ultimately clichéd approach is abundantly evident in the final product.

    January 11, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Green Book is a glib, caricatured and insensitive movie that reduces an enduring, dangerous societal problem to a calculated fable with a happy ending. [Full review in Japanese]

    May 3, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Is it a feel-good charmer poised to rake in greenbacks and Oscar gold? You bet! But don't let that keep you away from this overall well balanced (and timed) look forward from the safe distance of America's motley past.

    March 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • While Green Book is one of the lesser films to bear the Farrelly imprimatur, it can be appreciated for its role in revealing so nakedly the rules of the prestige picture sweepstakes.

    February 25, 2019 | Rating: 4 | Full Review…
  • The screenplay essentially turns Shirley into a black man who thematically shapeshifts into whoever will make the story appealing to white audiences - and that's inexcusable.

Audience Reviews for Green Book

    This film proves why movies can be so powerful with a touching, poignant and some times funny story of opposites attract. Enjoyed every moment although it isn't always easy to watch. Mortenson and Ali shine and there are strong supporting roles as well. A great way to start off the new year. 01/01/2020

    Interesting film and character study. Did the film deserve best picture at the Oscars? Probably not, but we all know the Oscars don't get the best picture correct. The film contains great acting and filmmaking, don't let my thought of best picture deter you from what is still a great film. It is still very relevant and topical for our generation as racism still exists, even if it is more behind closed doors. Mortensen maintains the character actor model from his early days and rewards the viewer with a character who grows over the course of the film. Ali is amazing as always and deserves bigger roles, he continues to shine as the support, even though he has a central presence like Washington. 24/05/2019
