Megan Williams Battle Royale With Cheese 'As The Earth Turns' is overall enjoyable. The digital restoration is an impressive piece of work and the new score adds to the visuals. Jun 15, 2020 Full Review Meyer Levin (Patterson Murphy) Esquire Magazine [It] caught some elements of story and atmosphere, yet failed to reproduce the novel's meaning. Apr 17, 2020 Full Review Helen Brown Norden Vanity Fair There is a certain serious fidelity about the picture which makes it ring true. For almost the first time, you see a group of actors pretending to be farmers, and they actually manage to make it seem credible. May 17, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
