Song to Song (15)

Drama, Music, Romance

Two intersecting love triangles. Obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas.

The critical consensus

Never reaching the heights of Malick’s ’70s heyday (what does?), Song To Song represents some kind of return to form following Knight Of Cups. It won’t convert the unconvinced, but it is beautiful, melancholic, audacious and well-played, a refinement rather than reinvention of a singular filmmaker.

****(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 05/07/2017

“Nothing felt real,” Mara laments at the start of Song To Song. That, sadly, is an observation that can just as well be aimed at the movie as a whole.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 05/07/2017

Malick is capable of keeping his top-heavy gyroscope of emotional rapture spinning away almost indefinitely.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 06/07/2017

Haters be damed – this is one of the year’s best.

*****David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 07/07/2017

This is less of a film and more of an endurance test.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 07/07/2017

Terrence Malick revisits familiar territory with this beautiful-looking but superficial romantic drama.
