Ellen E Jones Guardian Echo's surprisingly cockle-warming take makes it a worthy contender for your alternative Christmas classic. Rated: 4/5 Aug 5, 2020 Full Review Paul O'Callaghan Slant Magazine The film ultimately coheres into a vivid portrait of contemporary Iceland that's equal parts bleak and beguiling. Aug 21, 2019 Full Review Boyd van Hoeij Hollywood Reporter A multipart portrait of contemporary Iceland emerges that feels necessarily somewhat incomplete, given time constraints, but always deeply human. Aug 16, 2019 Full Review Filipe Freitas Always Good Movies This interesting idea ended up with a competent execution, with episodes of varying duration flowing at a nearly-pendular pulse and cohering in an intelligible way. Rated: 4/5 Sep 9, 2021 Full Review Clement Tyler Obropta Film Inquiry Echo doesn't give its audience straightforward answers, but it doesn't ask straightforward questions. It is, to me, one of the best films of 2020, because of that uncertainty, amorphous meaning, and kaleidoscopic storytelling. Jan 30, 2021 Full Review Miguel Martín Maestro El antepenúltimo mohicano [Director and writer Rúnar] Rúnarsson allows us to think about a change of style in Icelandic cinema, and it's appreciated as much as it is needed. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Aug 31, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

I'm not sure what the hell disney is thinking. Nobody asked for an Echo series and for good reason. This is straight up a DEI and ESG move yet again from a company that's been destroying its products and credibility to feed the message Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Read all reviews
