      rahscoh Watched for quite a while (1.+ hrs.) waiting for this 80% viewer rated film of unclear dialog & visual of mostly smoking and lots of square architecture to become fruitful as a movie. So I gave up trying to extract a reason for the high ratings! Maybe it's for those more coultred than myself?? As for architecture and beauty give me Port Townsend/Kalaloch respectively, also a waste of beauty in the stinker! AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN, less Kalaloch as it wasn't in that film, it's just beautifull. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/24 Full Review eric g If you loves Past Lives, you'll love this movie. A truly beautiful movie about the human spirit against the backdrop of Columbus' archite Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review john a Yawn, I have watched a cockroach 🪳 walking on the wall much more interesting Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/17/24 Full Review Laura M An architectural and cinematic beauty, the first twenty minutes or so feel as though the characters are moving though shots of stunning mid-century buildings. Slow in comparison to some more mainstream films but of the ‘slow cinema' I've watched this one doesn't require any patience. What plot there is moves forwards at a steady enough pace. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/24 Full Review Alec B A wonderfully assured debut from Kogonada. Not only is the movie filled with humor and insight but its also awash with fantastic shots. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Malik My favorite movie. I've seen it like 5 times but everytime it moves me in a new way. Masterpiece. Incredible. I love.

      Hannah Strong Little White Lies Imperfect, but more than enough to put Kogonada on the map. Rated: 3/5 Oct 8, 2018 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) In its precision - the framing of each shot is as eloquent as the dialogue - and measured pacing, Columbus is a balm, a deep tissue massage for the soul. Rated: 4/5 Oct 7, 2018 Full Review Ben Nicholson Sight & Sound From all the formal elegance there emerges something subtly but profoundly affecting about family and friendship. Oct 5, 2018 Full Review Vadim Rizov Filmmaker Magazine Columbus mostly seems like a movie that doesn’t want to disturb anyone, which is counterproductive when you’ve got characters wrestling with increasingly obvious, quite serious emotional problems related to damage done by their parents. Jan 12, 2023 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies But the most potent ingredients are the two lead performances. Cho is a natural at subtlety – somber, reserved and authentic at every turn. But it’s Richardson who steps out as a true revelation. Rated: 4.5/5 Aug 19, 2022 Full Review Calum Baker Radio Times While the characters are often swallowed up by the amazing buildings, their humanity never fades in this sweet and memorable drama.
