Critic Reviews for Phillip the Fossil

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (2)

  • The film isn't very good for reasons common to a low-budget work early in a director's career.

    April 17, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Mr. Donovan shows a talent for the poetic depiction of small-town life in flickering, quotidian scenes shot with constantly moving hand-held cameras.

    April 14, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The edge achieved by director-editor-producer-scribe Garth Donovan is jeopardized by overreaching for topical relevance.

    April 14, 2011 | Full Review…
  • Donovan's idiosyncratic approach to character develops a compelling rhythm, but the film falters when a dramatic double climax pushes it past its low-key limits.
