Critic Reviews for The River

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

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.

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.

September 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Rigorously composed and characteristically austere, it casts a spell that should attract support from adventurous distributors and arthouse admirers of uncompromising auteur cinema.
