Critic Reviews for I Am Belfast

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (1)

A boldly messy and impressionistic film.

April 4, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

At a time when filmmakers have been hesitant to engage with the difficult legacies of Belfast's past, Cousins provides a timely intervention while pointing to a future where all the city's inhabitants could take pride in the spaces... they inhabit.

January 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Even when he lapses into whimsy, Cousins' approach summons a portrait of great colour, complexity and originality.

January 2, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Cousins offers perhaps his most eccentric docu-essay yet, an impressionistic portrait of his home town, with Helena Bereen playing a regal personification of the spirit of place.

April 10, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Cousins doesn't ignore the bloodshed and sectarian violence (the pub bombings, the killings, the evictions) in the city's recent past but he also has a genius for finding the poetry and humour in everyday street scenes.

April 8, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This is an admiring portrait of the city but it's also tinged with sadness.
