Critic Reviews for The Bestowal

All Critics (9) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (2)

  • In all The Bestowal is a bold, idea-driven arthouse conversation piece, bolstered by two committed performances but weighed down with relentlessly heavy subject matter and unadventurous cinematography. (Article includes video interview with director.)

    June 23, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.
