  • Critic Reviews
    4 stars out of 5 -- "Today it looks like genius; as Lean's visionary leanings run off the hook with symbolic weather and flora..."

    "[A] marvel of pinpoint resolution and stable, saturated color."
    New York Times

    4 stars out of 4 -- "[A] cinematic expression of romance against a harsh backdrop of nature, politics, and human cruelty....RYAN's picture-perfect style of filmmaking is a pleasure to revisit."
