Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Bahrani is a gifted filmmaker. But he shoots himself in the foot by throwing in a contrived plot device that creates drama at the expense of credibility.
Fresh: The narrative takes a surprising turn, leading to a troubling and, I think, successful third act. Most uneven pictures have a way of fading to gray in the final lap; this one actually gets better as it goes.
Rotten: Bahrani fills the frame with weathered faces and "At Any Price" feels like it unfolds in something close to the real America. But he wants to give us larger-than-life drama, and his strengths are life-sized.
Rotten: In the end, "At Any Price" strikes a dark, even ghastly tone, and rather suddenly it becomes a cynical commentary on small-town hypocrisy and American business. It's hard to tell whether that was the intention.
Made me sick
Depressing and sad without the feeling of resolution one feels in a real tragic film. Just makes you sick.
You wait till the end for nothing!
The movie is very different from the trailer and the argument it's very poor. Then you follow the story and you end up with a depressed feeling in your stomach as the main characters supposed to be the good ones.
See it!!! By Robin
I thought this film was amazing. Yes, it was distrubing but that is what makes it interesting. Definately a window into a world I knew nothing about and the politics of todays farming . Focusing on a particular totally dusfunctional family that takes you on an unexpectant ride of desperation and tragedy.
