August 5, 2020
Quality political thriller starring (and also directed by) Robert Redford.
November 27, 2019
Intelligent. Thoughtful. Reflective. Powerful. A "Must See" film for the generations.

An exciting chase thriller with unusual emotional depth - in part thanks to Cliff Martinez' mournful score - The Company You Keep proffers interesting commentary on the sacrifices men will make for women they love.
February 26, 2019
The Company You Keep tries to split the difference between thriller and thought piece and winds up in a no-man's land between the two.
February 26, 2019
The supporting characters are quite insubstantial -- little more than cameo roles, cheapening the credentials of this cast somewhat, while resulting in a lack of emotional investment in the tale or the characters. The feature feels contrived, too.

The story is further bogged down by using Ben as a narrative device, since everything has to switch gears to incorporate him and it doesn't feel as though the filmmakers are especially interested in his character's dilemmas.

But as Redford's serious film reminds us, there's no point to saving the world and losing your soul -- or abandoning the souls of those for whom you're responsible.

The Company that Redford and his celebrated cronies keep is refreshing...fine wine can age better with time. But as far as stimulating political pot-boilers are concerned it is time for these rocking chair radicals to surrender altogether.

Redford wimps out.
January 1, 2016
Human connections the actors well establish are more convincing than political messages. . .Much is head-scratching and moral debates are more rueful than thoughtfully deep.
April 28, 2015
It feels like a relic from another time, which isn't exactly a bad thing.
January 3, 2014
This is the most depressing movie ever made about radicalism.
September 19, 2013
Far and away the most impressive thing about it is that Redford's ability to convince his famous friends to appear in small roles.
August 12, 2013
The Company You Keep is an effective, slow-burning mystery, boasting one of the most impressive casts of the last few years.
June 12, 2013
Redford proves that he's still capable of making the sort of provocative political thrillers that would make a younger generation envious.
June 3, 2013
Redford skillfully directs a cast so talented and comprehensive it threatens to overpower the briskly unassuming, but sharply written script.
May 17, 2013
Well-crafted, wellintentioned and well, just a tad dull, Redford's radical-chic-road-trip will appeal to the Senior Railcard crowd.
May 16, 2013
Welcome back, Mr Redford.

[Director Robert Redford] deftly articulates the moral morass that can arise when idealism gives way to reality; he also has some very definite things to say about the way today's sensation-hungry, click-addicted media operates.
May 2, 2013
Talk about timing. Whether it's good or bad remains to be seen.
