Critic Reviews of "Sunset Song"Seattle TimesJune 16, 2016
It blooms with moments of astonishing beauty: a yellow frenzy of springtime trees; a still room where the light slants in the window like a reaching hand; a desolate landscape, impossibly green.Philadelphia InquirerJune 03, 2016
Like Davies' best work, the movie employs classical rigor - perfectly symmetrical, painterly landscapes and interiors - with unexpected postmodern touches.St. Louis Post-DispatchJune 02, 2016
"Sunset Song" is not without flaws, but it's an art film of uncommon beauty.San Francisco ChronicleMay 26, 2016
It's an absorbing, finely composed, fretful film. But when it's over, there is as much relief for the filmgoer as appreciation for the filmmaker's art.Chicago TribuneMay 26, 2016
Davies tries things nobody else would try. Here that means allowing the choral passages - scenes in which individual characters and groups of characters express their feelings in popular ballads or folk songs - plenty of room.Boston GlobeMay 19, 2016
Has its moments of grace, but too often resorts to conventions and a tone of high lugubriousness.Out MagazineMarch 03, 2017
Sunset Song's story is told through moments of gorgeous, dramatic transition. But it will be remembered for its profound intimacy.Laramie Movie ScopeJanuary 16, 2017
Terrible things happen to the people in this film, but the story is captivating nonetheless. Although the story is a downer, there is a kind of noble enduring spirit shown by Chris throughout the film, and that helps a lot.MetroActiveDecember 31, 2016
Terence Davies is a clear-eyed nostalgia artist specializing in the retrieval of the mood and the color of the past. Sunset Song... seems like the culmination of his work.Flicks.co.nzDecember 01, 2016
For sheer rapturous beauty, Terence Davies's Sunset Song might be the film to top this year.New Zealand HeraldNovember 30, 2016
[It took] Terence Davies 18 years to bring this adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbon's novel to life. To show my appreciation, I've seen the film twice; and it's just as brutally devastating and moving second time around.
