Empire Magazine Rated: 2/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle Rated: 3/5 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Steven Alan McGaw Texas Triangle/TXT Queer audiences starved to see themselves on screen may he drawn to the film, but be advised, It's slow going. May 8, 2023 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall Mhis offbeat drama marches to such a fiercely original beat that it can't be ignored Rated: 4/5 Jul 14, 2010 Full Review Louise Keller Urban Cinefile An unforgettable and haunting film about longing and loss, Salmonberries has a visceral energy that is as powerful as its isolated snowy Alaskan locations. The icing on the cake is an evocative soundtrack .. Aug 29, 2008 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 3/5 Jul 28, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congradualation movie, you succeeded to make me as angry as ever about a movie. Really there is no excuse for this boring, unintresting, boring piece of crap. I get what message its trying to get at but it ends up with a series of pointless scenes oh and the main character in this is so stupid and not likable. So please do not watch this movie its just terrible! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Put this one slap dap in the middle. I liked it..but not too much. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member cringed quite a bit, but it wasn't totally insufferable. very conflicted feelings about this film, 't was bit of a bumpy ride. (and what was with 'em dream sequences??) it was kinda painful seeing k.d. lang in her acting debut, but at least she had the charisma to pull it off. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member One of those love-it-as-art or hate-it-as-pretension films. Which probably means it should be understood as sitting between those two extremes. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member More academically interesting, perhaps, than entertaining, but that's enough to hold my interest. Moments of Lynchian surrealism are fun. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Horrible acting, directing, and an almost non-existent plot. Plus the repetitive music and the constant nickname usage was just plain annoying. I have nothing good to say about this movie. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
