Solid and stately, a ’70s-feeling jungle adventure film that’s more of a thought-provoker than an excitement-inducer. But there’s nothing wrong with that.
With lush visuals, intelligent performances and a lingering lyricism, this is an instant classic that cements Hunnam’s star power.
Those venturing in anticipating Indiana Jones-style thrills are in danger of finding The Lost City of Zzzzs.
Beautiful, but skin-deep.
James Gray’s brilliant new feature is both a throwback to an era in which rip-roaring yarns about imperial adventurers were commonplace and a story with a strong and disturbing contemporary resonance.
There’s real artistry on screen and a lot to unpack thematically, something actually aided by the pacing.
Glorious music, photography and Robert Pattinson’s beard make this trip up the Amazon just about worth it.
Interview: director James Gray and actor Charlie Hunnam on heading deep into the Amazon to shoot The Lost City of Z.
