Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Makes a too obvious attempt to repeat [Cahill's] previous effort, wanting to be spooky and ending up soggy.
Fresh: This is a beautifully crafted story that takes us on quite the journey of exploration and discovery.
Rotten: Big ideas can sometimes lead to great motion pictures or, as in the case of I Origins, colossal misfires.
Fresh: With a slew of seemingly random clues unraveling in the pursuit of scientific mystery, Origins becomes gut-punching marvel.
I absolutely loved this film. Being a big fan of Another Earth I had a feeling that I Origins wouldn't disappoint. I'd read some reviews from people who really didn't like it, but I felt that it was incredibly well crafted. Mike Cahill is a incredible artist and a true talent to watch.
Beautiful: the story, the actors, the possibilities, the visual experience, the sound, the music… I was moved by this movie. I’m very happy to see Mr. Cahill, and Ms. Marling, and company working together again.
"Another Earth" gave me the same feeling. I think if these folks keep working together, they will make many more gems, and I think the sky is the limit for them.
They bring emotional honesty, reason, and hope to their audience, and it’s always wrapped in beauty. I can’t ask for more. Thanks!
If you’re a fan of Michael Cahill, “Another Earth”, then you’ll like this movie. Don’t watch the trailer, just get the movie. It’s magic - if you let yourself believe.
