Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Stewart acquits himself solidly, though not thrillingly, as a beginning director ...
Fresh: Rosewater ... has an urgency that's all about the storytelling smarts of its first-time writer-director.
Fresh: The hard-focus clarity of the images (Bobby Bukowski did the cinematography) leads to an intimacy with anguish that passes into expressionism.
Rotten: The main question Rosewater grapples with is whether Stewart can hack it as a filmmaker. The answer: sort of?
good if you can stick with it
i ended up enjoying this movie even though i almost gave up on it a couple of times. i’m glad i didn’t but it’s a bit of a slog. the picture it paints of life in iran is one that needs to be seen, however, and a reminder that we’re all just people, underneath it all. gael garcia bernal is incredible, as usual.
Because of Gael Garcia, is a good movie
It's was a long movie but it was worthy, Gael Garcia is a good actor, so far I love the movie
decent but forgettable
i enjoyed this movie mainly due to its historical relevence and the lead actor.
