Critic Reviews for Silent Tongue

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (10)

  • The lone lure of this supernatural Western is a truly possessed performance by River Phoenix in his last completed role.

    April 21, 2015 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • An alternately infuriating and exhilarating example of the Western as an art film.

    April 21, 2015 | Full Review…
  • A strangely satisfying and challenging piece of work, one that illustrates how elements of cinema, literature and theater can work in tandem, thanks to a recipe that is one part Poe and two parts Shakespeare.

    April 21, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Something deep and allegorical could be going on here, but Silent Tongue is at once so overwrought and desert-dull that you can't be bothered to investigate.

    April 21, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • A bizarre, meandering and, finally, maddening mystical oater that will find few partisans.

  • Intriguing, then, but defiantly slow and awkward.
