  2. kinotopia's rating of the film A River Called Titash

    what an awful mess. like if someone saw Satyajit Ray's "Apu Trilogy" and thought "I could do that" but they couldn't.

  6. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film A River Called Titash

    There are stray bits that impress, but it's such a disjointed, lumbering thing. And it too often skirts the ridiculous: the death scene of two of the main characters is high melodramatic nonsense. It's good-looking, aye, but the director lavishes far more attention on the numerous well-framed shots than he does on coherence, and finally even those become soporific. Satyajit Ray he ain't.

  7. Howard Orr's rating of the film A River Called Titash

    The dramaturgy of "A River Called Titash" is one that Shakespeare would recognise immediately; spellbinding, bravura, sad, often overreaching, but what counts is that it's one of the most heartfelt films in existence.

  8. Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film A River Called Titash

    This is one of those films of such gravity that I wish I could watch it again with virgin eyes. Full Review: http://cinephiledreams.blogspot.com/2013/12/a-river-called-titas-1971.html
