      Mona The movie was slow and depressing. It had no point. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/24/22 Full Review Oscar C Some scenes appeared long, but yiu didnt appreciate them until it was over. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/24/22 Full Review Mr. Hollywood One of those movies where it starts off decent enough and pulls you in and then it takes a sharp left turn and goes into Wokeness and hits all those points and you cant help but sit there and just roll your eyes. And that final scene man oh man its so Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/25/22 Full Review Frank G Story line was interesting. The movie overall was too slow, and some scenes were too long.

      Christy Lemire FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) Julian Higgins takes this very intimate and specific story that could have been a lurid B-movie and makes it art. Sep 19, 2022 Full Review Robert Daniels Los Angeles Times Newton braids every thread of generational trauma into a lived-in symbol of defiance and anger. Sep 16, 2022 Full Review Isaac Feldberg RogerEbert.com Profound and haunting. Rated: 4/4 Sep 16, 2022 Full Review Sarah Vincent Cambridge Day This is an unpredictable, majestic visual feast, sparse with dialogue and rife with superb performances, and Higgins’ sophomore feature is a strong contender for best American film of the year. Rated: 3.5/4 Aug 16, 2023 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix The slow-moving God's Country has a very predictable ending. However, this drama about an escalating feud gets a tremendous boost from Thandiwe Newton's riveting performance, as well as how director Julian Higgins builds tension in the movie. Mar 25, 2023 Full Review Jared Mobarak Hey, Have You Seen ...? Society has been pushed into the gray areas to acknowledge that innocuous events can spiral out of control and that incendiary ones demand a response. Newton delivers a character who can no longer avoid accepting that these truths are universal. Rated: 9/10 Dec 9, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
