      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      From Afar is narratively elliptical to a fault, but for patient viewers willing to allow the story to unfold at its own unhurried pace, the end result is its own absorbing reward.

      Scott Marks San Diego Reader [Pablo Larrain's] performance here further advances his standing as contemporary cinema's gray little nothing of an answer to the Everyman. Rated: 4/5 Jul 14, 2016 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) While it lacks the propulsive narrative drive and tonal shifts of Eastern Boys, From Afar reveals itself to be every bit as compelling a piece of film-making. Rated: 4/5 Jul 4, 2016 Full Review Demetrios Matheou Sight & Sound From Afar is an intelligent, daring, brilliantly constructed and acted film, announcing yet another Latin director who understands the virtue of restraint. Jul 1, 2016 Full Review David Lamble Bay Area Reporter The filmmakers dare to step up the stakes of their ballet of blood and bruises without ever turning us off or making us less than complicit in this dirty little war. Jun 10, 2020 Full Review Anthony Kao Cinema Escapist From Afar is not a political nor social commentary; it's one of those movies you'd expect to make a splash only at festivals and nowhere else. Aug 14, 2019 Full Review Alexa Dalby Dog and Wolf The film is an intriguing exploration of the changing power balance between the two [men]. Rated: 4/5 Feb 20, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      gabriel m Very well directed and acted. Superb cinematography by Sergio Armstrong Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member At first you might be a little confused, but watching it again I really liked this film. The performances were great, which definitely heightened the movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review mike v From Afar (Spanish: Desde allá) is a 2015 Venezuelan drama film directed by Lorenzo Vigas 🍿 It's ok, but I feel mixed about this one 😉 I'd recommend it if you like this genre, but if not then probably give it a miss 👍🏼👎🏼 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Freaky la peli, un comportamiento maniatico Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A slow burn to an unusual climax. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member El protagónico de Castro equilibra un poco el resto de malos actores pero no la salva de todo, el guión resulta lento y no muy interesante. Se aguantan los 93 minutos que dura pero es lenta y un poco aburrida, la historia tiene algo de interesante pero en general adormece.
