  • Critic Reviews
    "[A] shimmering, quiet treasure of a film, an elegy to mutable friendship, enduring nature, and the sense of loss that inevitably accompanies the adult pull to move forward." -- Grade: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    Included in Entertainment Weekly's "Top 10 Films Of The Year" -- "OLD JOY is a small, delicate thing, and a huge achievement in honestly independent filmmaking."
    Entertainment Weekly

    Ranked #13 in Film Comment's "20 Best Films Of 2006."
    Film Comment

    "[F]illed with the kind of unemphatic ambition and relevance that's become virtually extinct in American independent filmmaking."
    Film Comment

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]ts subtlety is as treasurable as an old friend."
    Total Film

    "[A] campfire monologue recalls EASY RIDER, and a wrangle over an order in a diner brings to mind FIVE EASY PIECES. As these forerunners suggest, the journey is as much metaphorical as geographical."
