Critic Reviews for Soul Food
An overt desire to please often leaves Tillman relying on force-feeding techniques.
Soul Food aims to be a banquet of feelings, but mostly it serves up tripe.
The steaming platters of fried catfish, macaroni and cheese, sweet corn bread, and black-eyed peas that appear early and often in writer-director George Tillman Jr.'s sentimental family drama should be listed in the credits as costars.March 17, 2008 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
Soul Food serves up family melodrama-cum-comedy that's tasty and satisfying, if not particularly profound or original.March 17, 2008
Tillman is tremendously skilled at bridging the vast shifts in tone.
A hearty, old fashioned meal of a film.February 9, 2006 | Full Review…
