Critic Reviews for The Search

  • The French director's follow-up to his Oscar-winning silent movie comedy, The Artist, is everything The Artist was not: long, unoriginal and heavy-handed.

    March 12, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Young Hadji's silence gives The Search what lasting power it possesses.

    March 12, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • An immense (two hours and 29 minutes) and gravely serious film tackling the humanitarian disaster of the Second Chechen War of 1999-2000.

    May 23, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The Search is a lecture. As laudable as the film is in many ways, I'm glad I'll never have to sit through it again.

    May 22, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Hazanavicius has confused sobriety with impact, and mulched down all the stories you might want to tell about Chechnya into a generic, undermotivated wallow.

    May 21, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Oscar winner Michel Hazanavicius makes a 180-degree shift from the effervescent charms of 'The Artist' with this grueling, lumbering and didactic war picture.
