A pretentious and utterly grueling practice in artsy fartsy...

Sally Potter has achieved a work that sings to us -- sensually, angrily, and beautifully.

Has its moments of curious pronouncements about the world that have the ring of poetical truths.

Despite many interesting mise-en-scene moments, the film disappointingly feels as sterile as the family's immaculately clean house.

Pretentious or artistic? ... a visceral film that is both hypnotic and irritating.

Despite the excellence of [Potter's] film craft and the quality of the performances, the movie's gimmicky use of language upstages its humanity.

The actors are so committed to Potter's vision, they persuade you to go along with them.

Art-house director Sally Potter casts a great actress in her canvas.

A rich stew of intellectualism and eroticism, sort of like My Dinner With Andre with better sex scenes.

Your taste in movies may not be/ Quite so highbrow or so twee/ But Potter has a lot to say/ About the troubles of our day.

In the wake of London's own terrorist attacks, Yes is a film that needs to be seen.

While the unconventionally filmed Yes doesn't fully realize all of its artistic ambitions, its depiction of romantic passion resonates with a genuine feeling that can't be dismissed.

It's a bold exercise, an interesting experiment, but a movie it ain't.

Potter's exploration of modern love fractured by cultural differences can be absorbing even if it feels at times like an intellectual exercise.

In addition to another outstanding performance by Allen, who can convey a range of emotions with an amazing amount of subtlety and grace, Yes features an abundance of challenging scenes that address weighty topics.

For those who accept Potter's premise -- and why not embark on a challenging, enriching experience? -- this is a unique, bold adventure of the soul.

The movie hovers somewhere between art film and artsy film, the former being something desirable and the latter something that strives failingly toward the former.
