Critic Reviews for I Am Happiness on Earth

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (5)

  • The key to enjoying this film is parking your narrative instincts at the door and allowing the masterfully constructed sensual images to wash over you.

  • If the film defies conventional form, it does so without the gravitas that conceptual cohesion brings, quickly rendering its experimentation into gratuitous aesthetic masturbation.

    August 17, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • ...Hernandez merely revels in his own pretentiousness, staging one dully limp encounter after another with self-conscious camerawork and absurdly stilted drama that renders the entire project a pseudo-porny slog.

    August 15, 2014 | Full Review…
  • At one point my notes included the gut reaction "This is awful."

    August 14, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Not to be a killjoy, but had Hernndez simply made a more straightforward, conventional movie about the life and loves of a rising gay Mexican film director, he might have had something.

  • A film that is impeccable from a formal point of view, but that begins to stumble with the limits of its speech. [Full review in Spanish]

  • (Director Julian) Hernandez provides loads of sexy scenery but not much sense. The film is heavy on slow, sensual storytelling that more often than not demands viewers' intuition rather than offer clearly delineated characters and relationships.
