Critic Reviews for Rocky Road to Dublin

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (1)

  • What could have been a turning point was instead a footnote of Irish cinema, seen now to be a presciently accurate assessment of Ireland's turbulent national character at a pivotal time of transition.

    May 11, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Lennon's analysis is always lucid but only skims the surface, and Coutard appears more interested in people than politics.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • This 1968 survey of Irish life remains noteworthy for its historical perspective, sardonic tone, lively structure and finely etched black and white cinematography.

    August 16, 2006 | Rating: 3/5
  • This is a tough but tender snapshot whose sociological and artistic merits have stood the test of time.

    August 15, 2006 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • If the film's cultural work is finished, its historical place will always be secure.

    August 15, 2006
  • The idealistic Peter Lennon, a Paris-based Guardian journalist, films a deeply affectionate look at his homeland on his return home.
