By trying to hold back for so long, Lucy in the Sky fails to prepare itself for the tone change it knows is coming, and burns up spectacularly upon impact.

Among other sins, Hawley & Co. waste Dan Stevens' spot-on Ned Flanders impression.
October 19, 2019
Lucy in the Sky is an absolute flatline, dragging to an anticlimactic ending. Hawley has proven that he's got the goods in the past, but after such an epic misfire, he might do best to stay in television where he belongs.

It's a fascinating notion, but one that {screenwriters] Brown, DiGuiseppi and first-time feature director Noah Hawley aren't able to sustain in more than a superficial way.
October 17, 2019
Despite Lucy in the Sky's attempt to showcase the many difficulties women face in a male-dominated field, Hawley's direction reduces Portman's heartfelt and nuanced performance to tabloid fodder, often presenting her as a hysterical cliché.
October 16, 2019
Despite its lofty, quasi-spiritual ambitions, the movie can't escape the gravitational pull of its own mundane, disappointing plotting and chaotic execution to get into orbit.
October 15, 2019
"Lucy in the Sky" has enough strengths to deserve some credit, but the sum total makes for a rough re-entry.
October 15, 2019
Over-directed.
October 14, 2019
Lucy in the Sky is flat and cold and terribly dull, despite decent work from Portman and her costars.

You view "Lucy in the Sky" through the lens of a telescope - from afar and without much detail.
October 13, 2019
Another fine turn for a terrific actress, even if the film itself has a tendency to bump its tail on terra firma.
October 11, 2019
... aspires to explore an existential crisis that comes off as nothing but rote ...
October 11, 2019
The most frustrating thing about Lucy in the Sky is that one can see fragments of several better movies within it.
October 11, 2019
[M]uch of "Lucy in the Sky," it doesn't connect down here on Earth and is caught somewhere in the cosmos.
October 11, 2019
So many of us expected something extra special from the guy who created TV's always intriguing and multi-Emmy-winning "Fargo."
October 11, 2019
Lucy in the Sky gets too caught up in technical flourishes and repetitive philosophizing to do anything compelling with its premise or characters.
October 11, 2019
Lucy in the Sky has no diamonds.
October 11, 2019
It's contemplative and meditative, sure, but it doesn't wind up saying anything.
October 11, 2019
Hawley leaves out the diaper detail, which is a shame because the movie's so full of s--t it could've used one.
October 11, 2019
Hawley and his collaborators clearly intended Lucy in the Sky to soar above the salacious and sensationalistic sides of the true case, yet they haven't found compelling enough ways to flesh out their own interpretation.
