  • Thanks to the excellent if a little on the obviously-pictorial-side cinematography by Robert Barocci, you've seen some lovely vistas on the way to indifference.

  • Remove the charm and the Depression-era aura from "Paper Moon" and you have "Lost in the Sun," a road movie that goes nowhere particularly interesting.

  • Despite some scenic territory, there's just not much to this journey, leaving "Lost in the Sun" feeling like a short story stretched way too thinly toward feature length.

  • At every minute in this film, you know where it's going, because nothing that happens in any of the 130 minutes of this film works at all if the movie doesn't get there.

    Nov 12, 2015 | Rating: 3.8/10 | Full Review…
  • It's a story of redemption and reconciliation that follows a well-worn path and strains credibility as it meanders along.

  • "Lost in the Sun" is a technically proficient but achingly typical gloomy southern crime drama, one that audiences can seek out if they exhausted every other similar film.
