Critic Reviews for The Bestowal

All Critics (8) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • Writer and director Andrew de Burgh chose a complex story to tell in the simplest of ways stripping bare all the extra elements and allowing the story to be told in whole through intelligent dialogue.

    December 7, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • ... the crux of de Burgh's story is how significant every life lived can be when given the chance. It's a valuable message for those patient enough to receive it.

    October 13, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • "Steven and Death have a long (and often tedious) metaphysical discussion about questions that intrinsically have no answer."

    September 30, 2019 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • Wise, honest and heartfelt albeit somewhat preachy. It's a perfect antidote to Hollywood's loud, vapid and mindless blockbusters. Fans of cerebral sci-fi films like The Man From Earth will love it.

    September 29, 2019 | Rating: 8/10
  • A thought-provoking, impactful independent sci-fi. It has its issues, but the writing and performances deserve great credit.

    September 12, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • The Bestowal thinks it's a whole lot smarter than it really is. de Burgh's characters preach his message to little effect, but still manage to form a genuine emotional bond as a duo which is something to be proud of.
