Critic Reviews

  • David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
    [It] doesn't offer up a ton of narrative surprises, but there is plenty going on the screen to keep you engaged - and visually stimulated.
  • Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
    You must be willing to give yourself to Braden King's debut feature, a slow, meandering and sumptuously photographed road trip combined with an intimate love story. I gave, and I got. A lot.
  • Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
    "Here" seems motivated by a tone of searching and yearning, not of finding a single way. As Foster's character says at one point, "Getting lost was the goal."
  • Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
    It becomes highly affecting, concerned both with the limits of mapping a landscape and with lovers' difficulties in navigating each other.
  • Stephen Holden, New York Times
    The trains of thought stirred up by the film's contemplation of what is here and what is there - and where you are - are endless and stimulating. And the movie is embellished with spectacularly beautiful, enigmatic bursts of abstract imagery.
  • Scott Tobias, AV Club
    The unstructured, come-what-may quality of a road movie is part of its appeal, but it can be a pitfall, too, when all that spontaneity starts to look more like lollygagging.
  • David Fear, Time Out
    Viewers get ample time to luxuriate in the landscapes while gritting our teeth over Peter Coyote's pseudomythic narration and the sort of WTF meta touches that a first-year film student might find ridiculous.
  • Karina Longworth, Village Voice
    The dreamy, feverish beauty of these sequences just barely balances out the pretension of the exposition.
  • David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
    The film captures some impressive landscapes and layers an eclectic mix of original and traditional Armenian music over its unhurried travel time. But unless you count doing a lot of vodka shots, this is a dramatically uneventful two hours.
  • Michael Nordine, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
    Grapples with the very idea of wanderlust, eventually coming to look at it as both a state of grace and an appealing delusion.
