Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Wendy and Lucy is quiet, deliberate filmmaking. See it knowing you will witness an idiosyncratic take on storytelling by a fundamentally independent filmmaker.
Fresh: Williams and Patton and the folks of this corner of Oregon serve up a slice of "indie" that, if it doesn't reach the level of "inspires," at least feels timely and true.
Fresh: Deliberately paced -- slow, even -- it's nevertheless an amazing, timely parable for increasingly desperate times.
Rotten: Sensible people will see the film for what it is: Waiting for Dogot without Beckett... But you cannot argue with dog lovers: they see in a vacuum of nothingness an existential nirvana.
Great Simple Film!
Sometimes the best movies are just simple gems with wonderful camera work and simple acting by actors just getting it right.
Very moving story, perfectly acted. A tragic tale of hope, love, helplessness, and ultimately sacrifice. I loved this one! Highly recommended but be warned, it's a bit of a tearjerker.
