Ratings & Reviews

  1. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    A moody and beautifully directed crime drama

  2. Cartaphilus's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

  3. Arthur Freitas's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    I don't know why I thought this film had “a malickian feeling” in my first viewing. Maybe because I was so impressed by BADLANDS at the time. Well, not anymore. it remembers me some crime dramas, but this is very shallow in retrospect — only with a few beautiful, honest scenes.

  4. Zach Closs's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" worships Terry Malick to a somewhat distracting degree, even if it does succeed in emulating the auteur's signature style. But it's the performances and characters in "Saints" that win you over, in any case -- Rooney Mara and Ben Foster in particular are sublime, with solid supporting work from the compulsively watchable Keith Carradine.

  5. Mariana Narciso's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

  6. Ricardo Branco's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    You can feel Lowery channeling Malick, but the plot is totally subversive to what Badlands is and that's probably what i most enjoyed.

  7. Bret Bynum's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    This film felt very much like if Terrence Malick remade Badlands with his more modern aesthetic. That being said, this movie certainly is no rip off. It's a blend of poetic acting, cinematography, camera work, writing, and emotion all set is the dry and harsh, yet beautiful Texas landscape. The film unapologetically romantic and thoughtful.

  8. T-Cruise's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

  9. The Macho King's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    Something just feels...missing.

  10. Michael Peer's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    A beautiful film that is uncompromising in it's atmosphere and scenery. Many have compared this to Malick but that comparison is a far cry. This is a moving and ultimately heart-wrenching film that starts slow and builds to a satisfying end. This won't blow you out of the water but it's a disciplined and stunning work. It's strong in almost all areas but is never transcendent.

  11. spiderliliez's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    What I love most about this film is how real it feels. It's sad, but not overly dramatic. It's not trying to be anything. It's beautifully directed with such wonderful talents. Loved the tension/chemistry between its actors, especially Rooney Mara, Ben Foster and Casey Affleck. It was David Lowery's last film, and he made sure it was beautiful.

  12. Rohan Berry's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    A slow-burn crime drama that focuses upon the star-crossed lovers played with utter conviction by Mara and Affleck. Casey Affleck is increasingly becoming one of the greatest actors of his generation, supplying a quietly understated role that skirts round the edges of violence. The real revelation here is Ben Foster who delivers a performance of such warmth and depth that it makes a conventional drama unique.

  13. Carl Penguin's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    and the beginning was so beautiful..

  14. Zac Weber's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    An obvious homage to Terrence Malick, but there are worse directors to emulate. The photography and score are really wonderful, even if the dusty, folk-noir narrative is rather straight-forward.

  15. CinemaDead's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

  16. Scotch's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    I know—it went no where, but I was totally fine going there. Anything for Casey. The score was also quite lovely; all scores need gentle hand clapping.

  17. J. O.'s rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    Points for the beautiful, dusty cinematography, the wonderful pace, good performances, and a perfect soundtrack. But no points for the familiar story or its execution, as Lowery makes no attempt to do anything fresh with the material. Not to mention the one-dimensional portrayal of Texas (even stranger seeing Lowery is a Dallas boy). The title is far too ambiguous, and irritating, but that's not a focus by any means.

  18. venenatis's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    "I used to be the devil, now I'm just a man."

  19. cinemali's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    A bit cliché, following conventions. Still a technically wonderful film, the music is moving.

  20. Effendi Ben Smith-Malick's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    "But IIIIIII want to be Terrence Malick!" - Whoever Made This

  21. SlinkyLi's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    Demands the viewer's involvement. It's like if Townes van Zandt made a concept album and it was adapted by Nicolas Winding Refn trying to emulate Terrence Malick.

  22. Jason Callen's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    Better than recent Malick, who is obviously a primary influence.

  23. msmichel's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    Quite wonderful character piece that seems derivative of Malick at times but finds its own voice as it goes on. Lowery is one to watch but the film sings due to the wonderful trio of lead performances by Mara, Affleck and Foster with a winning supporting turn from Carradine. The story isn't novel but the films' pacing and performance make it one to remember. Wonderfully shot and edited with a fitting soundtrack.

  24. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    The first scenes of “Ain’t Them Bodies Saint” were the premise to what would be a notable independent film. Review and Rating: http://alwayswatchgoodmovies.blogspot.com/2013/09/aint-them-bodies-saints-2013.html
