David Lewis San Francisco Chronicle [It] doesn't offer up a ton of narrative surprises, but there is plenty going on the screen to keep you engaged - and visually stimulated. Rated: 3/4 May 10, 2012 Full Review Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal You must be willing to give yourself to Braden King's debut feature, a slow, meandering and sumptuously photographed road trip combined with an intimate love story. I gave, and I got. A lot. May 5, 2012 Full Review Mark Olsen Los Angeles Times "Here" seems motivated by a tone of searching and yearning, not of finding a single way. As Foster's character says at one point, "Getting lost was the goal." Rated: 3/5 Apr 26, 2012 Full Review Michael Nordine Not Coming to a Theater Near You Grapples with the very idea of wanderlust, eventually coming to look at it as both a state of grace and an appealing delusion. Apr 29, 2012 Full Review Frank Lovece Film Journal International Languid road movie, punctuated by ponderous abstract interludes, about a young American mapmaker in Armenia who meets a prodigal woman photographer. A promising filmmaker needs to his lose art-school baby fat. Apr 13, 2012 Full Review David D'Arcy Screen International In HERE, the landscape doesn't become a character, as the boilerplate clich would have it, but the brief-encounter romance becomes a proto-documentary.

Audience Member Not really much new here, but Braden King's slowly paced and loose approach carries a tone that grows on you. Scenery lovers will enjoy the look of the movie. Ben Foster and Lubna Azabal are the film's best assets. It just never felt alive enough to cross over into something really interesting. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm a Ben Foster fan and this movie is a solid piece. All around a good film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a beautiful story with great scenery. The lead actors were wonderful together. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a lovely film. Slow and deliberate, Here takes its time unraveling a tender romance between an American mapmaker and an Armenian woman in the countryside. It's part road movie and part culture clash. The cinematography is spectacular. Ben Foster, always reliable, delivers one of his landmark performances. The film could have done without the abstract interstitials and voice-over poetry, which come off as freshmen film school. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review walter m "Here" is Armenia where Will Shepard(Ben Foster) has come to map the country but has trouble ordering an omelette. That's where Gadarine(Lubna Azabal) comes in. She is just back from Paris where she studied photography and whose return her brother Krikor(Narek Nersisyan) is more than ambivalent about. By coincidence or this being a very small country, Gadarine and Will meet again at a reception. After which, she agrees to accompany him on his work around the country, even after being warned away from the eastern border. "Here" is a fine example of sparse and meditative filmmaking, whose deliberate pace often allows the scenery to do the talking for it. What we find is a country that while lacking amenities like basic scheduled transportation has a valuable commodity in a friendly population.(No wonder Gadarine has mixed feelings on her return.) In this day and age, it is kind of amazing that somebody could literally go off the map and find themselves in a situation where nobody speaks English. And yes, the interludes are kind of pretentious but I could listen to Peter Coyote read the phone book all day, so no complaints here. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This film is long and slow, and many people don't like it. But if you can get past that, you may find a beautiful piece of cinematography and a true work of art. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
