Critic Reviews for Wild Tigers I Have Known

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (8)

  • This is lyricism at its most extreme, at once gripping and off-putting because Archer views his characters as if he were gawking at them through the bars of a cage.

    May 1, 2007 | Full Review…
  • [Director] Archer isn't necessarily taking us anywhere new, but his movie's rapture is beautiful inside and out.

    April 13, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Wild Tigers I Have Known studiously avoids the clichs of the genre. It's also exasperatingly inconclusive. Its dreamy, enigmatic characters often fail to engage.

    April 13, 2007 | Rating: 2/4
  • The filmmaker, Cam Archer, seems to be trying for a mood of hazy self-pity, which he achieves just enough to make you wish he'd get over it.

    March 7, 2007 | Rating: F | Full Review…
  • While there's something admirable in [director] Archer's attempt at making an ambient song of the self out of the protagonist's search for sexual identity (along with some heavily metaphorical mountain-lion attacks), the result is empty.

    March 3, 2007 | Rating: 2/6 | Full Review…
  • Young writer-director Cam Archer uses disjointed imagery, textures and clashing sound to create something seamlessly odd and poignantly pubescent.

    March 1, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/4
