Critic Reviews for Walking on Water

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (29) | Rotten (4)

  • Curiously artless for a movie about the art world.

    March 16, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The film does what it apparently sets out to do, which is to give some account of two statements Christo makes to a group of schoolchildren early on in the proceedings: "I love real things," and, "When you are an artist, you are all the time artist."

    July 19, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • There's some dry in "Walking on Water," though not much. There's a fair amount of wet. As for joy, that there is in abundance.

    June 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Rather than focus on the engineering and logistics of "Piers," which actually sound really intriguing, the filmmaker trains his camera on general bickering and whining instead to an almost unpleasant degree.

    May 29, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's still possible to gasp at what is shown us in Walking on Water, if only from a logistical standpoint. The massive planning required for such a project is revealed in mind-numbing detail.

    May 24, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • It is when Paounov reveals Christo's leonine qualities that "Walking on Water" achieves a rare authenticity.
