  • With its sweeping images recorded in ultrahigh-def, Monsoon is a visual stunner - a visceral experience of India during monsoon season.

  • We meet some interesting characters, including a bookie who takes bets on rain, and travel to fascinating destinations like "Place of the Clouds" at the base of the Himalaya Range, reportedly the world's rainiest spot.

  • What's most frustrating is the way Gunnarsson insists on inserting his own opinions into the picture. Despite staying behind the camera, Gunnarsson can't help but narrate on how he felt about a certain moment while filming.

  • There is a tradition of observational documentaries that present events and images without offering context or insight, but Monsoon doesn't even do that. There's no curiosity, not even a pretense of investigation. It's just tourism.

  • It's not a violent tug into a swirling eddy of environmental issues, nor is it a crashing wave of documentary force. Veteran director Sturla Gunnarsson's latest is a slow rising tide that gently carries you down a river of thought...

    Nov 16, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Not content with mere metaphorical forces of nature, Sturla Gunnarsson's latest documentary dives headfirst into one of our most impressive literal ones, the torrential rains that in many ways define Indian culture.
