Critic Reviews for It's The Earth Not The Moon

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (2)

  • Through fourteen headed chapters, Tocha catalogues every strata of island life, often in captivating images-the reflection of the village in a rheumy eye, moonglow on the harbor.

    July 13, 2012
  • Though often random in its organization - Mr. Tocha slides from contemplative seascapes and misty meadows to a slaughterhouse and the Corvo landfill - this portrait is still much more than a snapshot.

  • As a memento mori, It's the Earth feels a little lost in space.

  • ... a film constantly dancing between impressions and moments captured in the present.

    October 2, 2017 | Full Review…
  • After 30 minutes or so, Gonalo Tocha's anthropological proposition slides into dubiousness.

    July 9, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • What emerges is a picture of a place where much history has been lost, often deliberately, but where the residents, though mindful of their past are always looking to the future.
