Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Much of the joy of The Waiting City comes from the slow unraveling of the characters relationships, as well as in the gorgeous cinematography of Denson Baker.
Fresh: The Waiting City is a beautifully crafted bitter-sweet exploration of a functional but near-broken relationship exposed by this perpetually functional but near-broken city.
Fresh: India is the best character in a touching if convoluted story.
Rotten: Too often in The waiting City, there are moments that jar, misjudgments and bad calls in performance and structure that distract from the important process going on here.
This movie was a delight of the senses! It made me feel deeply & while it starts out slow, you soon begin to invest in the characters. It's like swimming in deep & sometimes murky waters. It left me breathless.
