The Roads Not Taken

Critics Consensus

The Roads Not Taken is the well-acted result of an undeniably singular vision -- one which is ultimately frustratingly, fatally inert.

  • It's a chamber piece in many ways, but with bold flashback excursions that come close to causing its emotional engine to overheat.

  • [T]hat's it. That's the film. Three different Javier Bardems moaning solidly, sometimes crying, and struggling to write, for 85 minutes.

  • The Roads Not Taken, an understated drama from Sally Potter, is rich with small moments of intimacy.

    September 10, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A sad, timely story of family and fragility.

    September 9, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • At its root, "The Roads Not Taken" is not an examination of where we go or don't go in life, but who we choose to go there with.

    March 20, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • After an hour of this tedium, you stop worrying about where this disaster is going-or if it's going anywhere at all.
