Critic Reviews for Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (34) | Rotten (3)

  • "Nomad" has several indelible moments: seeing the backpack and annotated script, Herzog's account of visiting Chatwin just before his death. But overall the film is static and more wayward than not.

    August 27, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • As the movie's reach extends, Herzog limns an arc that stretches from Antarctica to Siberia and beyond, implying that, in a sense, we all came from the same unfixed place.

    August 25, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Even if [Herzog] one day set out to make an overt cinematic self-portrait of his life and work, it is hard to believe that it could be as penetrating and insightful as this film.

    August 25, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Werner Herzog makes a pilgrimage inspired by the adventurer.

    October 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Duplicating many of Chatwin's most notable journeys, Herzog evokes the late English wanderer's restless soul and curious fascination with profound issues that have long captivated the director.

  • A poignant testament to two friends' shared curiosity about the world.
