Critic Reviews for The River

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (7)

  • "Harmony Lessons" and "The Wounded Angel" may have established the preoccupations of this self-described trilogy, but "The River" is a downstream delta where those ideas spread and swirl in compelling, sometimes creepy combination.

  • Some may find it aestheticized to a fault, but this is a seductive, sensual work, its melancholy spell pierced by unexpected humor as well as danger.

  • An absorbing work. [Full review in Spanish]

  • Although the third act of The River becomes more plot-driven than it really needs to, much of the film is conveyed through rhythm, framing, and atmosphere.

  • This peculiar and impenetrable look at five boys raised on a secluded farm can be a frustrating endurance test. You'll be rewarded by darkly comic wit and a political allegory that will have you mulling over striking images long after it's over.

    September 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A searing, precise portrayal of the dangers of not only luddism, but the dysfunctional possibilities in the absence of love and affection.
