George and Margaret have built up such a reservoir of goodwill that you're thoroughly invested in their fate, no matter how overwrought.
November 24, 2020
A 1960's set, western-slanted revenge piece that takes a little longer than it should to get where it needs to go, but packs enough of a punch upon arrival to make it worth the journey.

Well-acted as a character study and very entertaining.

(Kevin) Costner and (Diane) Lane are dynamic together...
November 18, 2020
Although it's marvelous to see Costner and Lane together -- allowing their characters to communicate without dialogue -- it's equally engaging to watch Manville inhabit a villainess so despicable you won't be able to get her out of your head.

Equal parts moving and thrilling, "Let Him Go" is a nice surprise.
November 18, 2020
'Let Him Go' is a story about motherhood and loss couched in a 60's slow-burn western.
November 17, 2020
Let Him Go isn't afraid to dip its toe in different genres on its way to being a classic David vs. Goliath, last-stand Western.
November 16, 2020
A fine enough slice of methodical storytelling for patient, undemanding audiences who don't get why '70s films ever had to stop.
November 14, 2020
A taut 1950s-era story combines with the strong chemistry between stars Diane Lane and Kevin Costner to create an electrifying, powerful, and haunting cinematic experience. This is one of the very best adult dramas in years.

These two women give the film its formidable backbone and chief interest. Sadly the rest of the film isn't quite as compelling or as fully realized.
November 13, 2020
The acting in Let Him Go is quite good.
November 13, 2020
Let Him Go is both a period piece - though set in the 1950s, not the Old West - and also a tale pregnant with grief.
November 13, 2020
Its pleasures are almost contemplative, and although there is plenty of action, the real meat of the movie is the action in the characters' heads.
November 11, 2020
A slightly-effective revenge thriller...

Manville has always been an actress capable of any challenge, but I think this may be some of her best work yet -- with a performance that is as terrifying as any in recent memory.
November 10, 2020
In many ways, it feels like the midcentury pulp thrillers it emulates: well-plotted and grisly, but almost ephemeral. It is Lane's performance that lingers, one that dares to be uniquely hopeful about the future, and letting the old ways die.
November 10, 2020
Thomas Bezucha delivers a contemporary Western that drifts along in slow-burn mode as it heads towards a thrilling climax.
