My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done Reviews

September 25, 2010
The version of madness displayed by [Michael Shannon's] Brad is not typically dramatic; it's mostly just strange, and dances the line bordering on goofiness.

It is a film that addresses itself directly to the audience of Lynch and Herzog, and sets out, in its own special way, to "razzle them, dazzle them, razzle dazzle them."

Oddly understated, it's nevertheless as unnerving a vision of disintegration in suburbia as you'd expect from director Werner Herzog and producer David Lynch.

My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done finds God in a cereal box and Satan on an ostrich farm.

Unsettling but in a good way.

The nods to Aguirre, Wrath of God and Fitzcarraldo won't go unnoticed, but the more obtuse touches that bear the stamp of executive producer David Lynch may prove too eclectically eccentric.

My Son, My Son... may be a minor work in the Herzog canon but it's still one of the more fascinating, frustrating, disturbing and beautiful experiences available to cinemagoers this year.
September 8, 2010
This is a must for Herzog and Lynch fans.

Like many of the characters, the plot is under-developed yet My Son, My Son lingers in the brain and is essential viewing for Herzog and Lynch fans alike.

Enjoyably weird thriller that's a treat for fans of both Herzog and Lynch, with a superb script and great performances from a terrific ensemble cast.

A film that gets increasingly under our skin as it goes along, tying up loose ends along the way while leaving other things maddeningly out of reach

This is Herzog pursuing ideas that fascinate him almost without recourse to whether or not they "work"... wildly interesting, almost too interesting to handle.
April 8, 2010
Easily the most fascinatingly freaky film to come along since "The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans," Herzog's previous bizarro take on the cop movie genre.
April 8, 2010
Confounds all convention and denies all expected pleasures, providing instead the delight of watching Herzog feed the police hostage formula into the Mixmaster of his imagination.
February 26, 2010
Plays like an unholy offspring of both maverick outsiders, filled with unsettling, dreamlike moments, but also plenty of dark laughs.
December 11, 2009
Herzog fans will love it.
December 11, 2009
A surreal descent into a twilight zone created by the twisted sensibilities of two cinematic geniuses.
December 10, 2009
Viewers will have to decide for themselves whether My Son is a terrible, terrible movie or an uncompromising Herzog experiment in reality-bending. Here's a suggestion: consider the track record.
December 9, 2009
It's likely that only Herzog would dare to, and succeed at, resolving this singular cinematic object by contemplating the fate of an abandoned basketball.
December 8, 2009
Herzog has gone beyond Good and Evil to reinvent himself as a candidate for the wiggiest director of comedy in America today.
