The film requires much patience and attention in order to grasp the full nature of this colossal production, yet it is a must-see for anyone who is ready to embark on a soul-seeking visual journey.

If you enjoy films that push past the boundaries of conventional cinema, then Kosmos is a fascinating Smörgåsbord board of convoluted themes and ideas exhibited through some of the most profoundly beautiful visuals you'll see all year.

Overwrought and overlong, but still chockfull of arresting imagery.

Kosmos is nothing less than cosmic in scope, and it's beautifully shot, and profoundly imaginative, but it's finally just too much of a good thing.

Not your every day offering, admittedly, but a tremendously filmic exercise all the same.

It's a strikingly imaginative effort, a haunting and poetic film from a major talent who's been gathering admirers on the international circuit since his breakthrough film Times and Winds (Bes vakit) back in 2006.

Reha Erdem's confident, skilfully framed allegory...

The bleak, dramatic scenery and sheer oddness here just about keep up the intrigue.

Kosmos is a bewildering and beautiful, if not entirely successful curiosity.

Two hours is a long time for something this restless and unforgiving - but it is fascinating, studded with moments of exhilarating beauty and remarkable, unexpected power.

Requires perseverance but might appeal if your taste runs to pleasant bewilderment.

Yesil makes a winsome savant, but his tendency to communicate with his beloved in loud squawks of birdsong proves trying, to say the least.

So portentous and superficially philosophical, it plays like art-house self-parody, betraying Erdem's visual grandeur in the process.

You need a ledger to keep track of the film's solemn, showy, ramshackle, empty symbolism.

It's an interesting film, even if it's never clear what Erdem is getting at.

Visually arresting but teeth-grindingly metaphysical, Reha Erdem's curio has shades of Tarsem Singh in its thinly sketched but eye-catching storytelling.
