Critic Reviews for The Strongest Man

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (7)

  • Writer-director Kenny Riches lays on the whimsy pretty thick, and his sub-Jarmusch deadpan style (inert camera, intentionally flat line readings) adds another layer of affect to the story.

  • Although Beef and Conan are far from stereotypical, the quirkiness and eccentricities ascribed to them by writer-director Kenny Riches harp on their otherness all the same.

    June 25, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The kind of indie doodle of a movie in which several potentially interesting ideas co-exist but never quite come together and where supporters will call the narrative "freewheeling" while naysayers will insist on "rambling."

    February 5, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Another stab at that school of comedy in which adult losers acting like particularly dweeby 13-year-olds in nonsensical situations is assumed to be automatically hilarious.

  • It's definitely an acquired taste, but it's most helpful to view the film as a fairy tale.

  • Like the waves of the ocean its characters occasionally and semi-fearfully embrace, The Strongest Man continually goes in and out, connecting and drifting away.
