You can feel in this film, as you can in Herzog's best movies, the ethereal pull that the uncanny can exert on a man.
April 14, 2017
Hunnam's performance is charming and lived in, easily the best work he's ever done, and scene for scene, this is a splendid film.
April 14, 2017
An incandescent reminder that the world's most beautiful mysteries endure precisely because they remain unsolved.
April 13, 2017
This rambling, repetitive production tells its tale dispassionately, with sententious speeches and ruminative murmurs.

By all means, go see "The Lost City of Z" - I wouldn't have missed it. But spare a thought for all the less celebrated characters in it ...

As Fawcett presses on, walking and sailing through dense shadow, streaming light and canopies of variegated green, the natural world comes fantastically alive with strange animal cries, stirring trees, roiling fog and frighteningly violent eddies.

The Lost City of Z is neither Indiana Jones escapism nor a Malick-like reverie about nature, but something in between, a more grounded and troubled vision of human aspirations and imperfections.

Given Fawcett's trailblazing achievements -- and Gray's choice to film in difficult circumstances deep in the Colombian jungle -- the film is oddly restrained.
April 13, 2017
What begins as an old-fashioned adventure tale subtly, almost imperceptibly morphs into something far richer, more mysterious and cosmic. By the time you realize the transformation has occurred, the movie has you in its clutches, and it doesn't let go.
April 13, 2017
"The Lost City of Z" is a real find.
April 13, 2017
Pictures with the grand sweep and dreamy energy of The Lost City of Z don't come along every year-they barely come along at all.
April 13, 2017
The cast is terrific, with a revelatory turn from Charlie Hunnam as Fawcett; the handsome English actor brings so much poise to the role that one can't help but think that he's been getting the wrong scripts for most of his career.
April 12, 2017
The Lost City of Z may, like early films by Gray, leave some thirsting for more swashbuckling adventure. But if you let the ebb and flow of the Fawcetts' lives drift over you, the movie is a wellspring.

The Lost City of Z is so jarringly out of step with summer blockbuster season that watching it feels like discovering a relic.
April 12, 2017
It's Gray's careful choices as a director that truly star here, from the classically infused score by frequent collaborator Christopher Spelman to the inspiring shots of remote Colombia captured by his frequent director of photography, Darius Khondji.
April 12, 2017
Everyone, including Hunnam and Pattinson, brings their A-game to James Gray's haunting and visionary journey into the heart of Amazonian darkness, a potent provocation that gets under your skin.
April 11, 2017
Gray, even as he pushes at the edges of what is filmable, never loses his capacity for creating moments of rapturous beauty. See this thing on the biggest screen you can find.
April 11, 2017
The Lost City of Z(ed) isn't as expansive as you might initially wish but still pulls you in and along.
April 10, 2017
"The Lost City of Z" is beautiful, mournful, and measured. But the tale that it tells cries out for madness.
March 30, 2017
The film sets itself apart from the average adventure saga by assuming a pointed cultural perspective.
