Critic Reviews for The People Garden

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

Mostly ... "The People Garden" is so slow and spare that it barely registers. It just floats through the forest, silent and bloodless.

Everyone who watches this film can take something away from this cinematic experience, from admiring Litz's directorial choices to lusting after Hemingway's wardrobe, do try to put The People Garden on your list of under the radar, must-see movies.

The set-up promises some kind of dramatic climax but comes up largely vacant.

Sep 23, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Merely a collection of ominously framed images devoid of purpose.

Sep 13, 2016 | Full Review…

Somewhere in this 83-minute mystery story there is a mediocre 20-minute film struggling to get out.

A drab leading lady and dull story ruin the novelty of this mystery set in Japan's infamous "Suicide Forest."
