Critic Reviews for The Looking Glass

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (2)

  • Tristan's creaky, often episodic script attempts to tackle some big topics - art, love, loss, family bonds, mortality - but does so in such a forced, talky way that it's hard to buy into the tale's earnest emotional core.

  • The fact that the film's most resonant and likable portions are those in which nothing actually happens almost too nicely encapsulates why "The Looking Glass" falls sadly flat throughout much of its running time.

    October 22, 2015 | Full Review…
  • An overlong but deeply felt film about a dying woman trying to connect with her granddaughter.

    October 20, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Moving coming-of-age tale has mature themes.

  • In his four decade career, director Hancock has always excelled in smaller, personal films. From "Bang the Drum Slowly" to the Nick Nolte prison drama "Weeds," Hancock manages to give the characters meaning, bringing them to the forefront of the story.

    December 6, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A tender, well-acted drama brimming with warmth and humanism.
