Critic Reviews for The Turning

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (24) | Rotten (4)

  • The films are rich and diverse, moving from the warm humour of Cate Blanchett reconnecting with her mother-in-law to a battered Rose Byrne having visions of Jesus.

    February 8, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The film rewards the patient, with the most compelling entries stacked in the back half.

  • The cream of Australian acting talent features in this portmanteau picture, based on interlinking short stories by Tim Winton.

    February 5, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The Turning is a collection of nine short films based on Tim Winton's stories, some of which are more satisfying than others but in all they give a sense of Australian landscape and life at the edges.

    February 5, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Even at the level of the individual short film it looks disconcertingly unfinished and unformed, each piece seeming like a sketch for something bigger.

    February 5, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • There's much to admire in this compilation of Australian short films, but the run-time is far too punishing.

  • Sometimes, the whole thing can be a drag. Then The Turning can suddenly hit you with some of the best Australian filmmaking seen in years.

    July 14, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • While it demands substantial concentration from the audience, this elegant and suspenseful epic more than rewards the effort.
