      Robert Hanks Independent (UK) The Tim Burtonish retro design and the blatant references to silent masterworks don't amount to a style; and even if they did, wouldn't make up for the kitsch story. Rated: 1/5 Aug 1, 2008 Full Review Wendy Ide Times (UK) This wonderfully original little film is filled with tacit menace and ominous symbolism; it's a work of curious and unsettling beauty. Rated: 4/5 Aug 1, 2008 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian This left-field, futuristic film is a tad too indulgent to be a true homage to the silent movie. Rated: 2/5 May 16, 2008 Full Review Ian Berriman SFX Magazine A hauntingly beautiful work: inventive, elegiac, gently surreal. Nov 15, 2010 Full Review Holly Grigg-Spall Film4 A stylishly inventive play on silent-era movies that presses political buttons.

      g j There's clearly something ambitious and original here, but it just didn't really land for me. The classy veneer starts to wear thin quickly and what's left is something pretentious, annoying and strangely lacking in substance. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review georgan g Fascinating stylized cinematography but too slow & too long. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Me sorprendió muy gratamente. Tomando tanto elementos del cine mudo como modernos, logra un estilo único. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member An Argentinian black and white film and kind of a tribute to really old school cinema. A city has lost it's voice. Meaning people can't speak as "Mr. TV" has stole the ability. Of course there is one that can, so the hunt is on. Good versus evil-style. Almost a silent film, almost a fully animated film, almost a children film, always a unique film. Lovely music and clever words put to screen that go with the cool story. I won't say it's perfect. It's a bit soft and at times slow. The plot is not very wide as there are few figures here and happenings. I can name five of six happenings in total that make the film - meaning that it's not moving forward that smoothly. It took about a year in post production to edit, and I can understand why. The production is splendid. Enjoyable but a bit flat for such a semi-weird film that still never strikes me as an oddball film as it's also a bit safe and almost dragging at times. 7 out of 10 words. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member A little self indulgent, but good. The only movie this director ever made. Strange. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review joe m Off beat, trying for arty but not quite suceeding, "The Aerial" is one of those films that may seem good as a concept yet the delivery, while visually intriguing, winds up being merely ok.
