  1. ruzica's rating of the film Certain Women

    This was such a terrific film. I loved all stories and I loved the melancholic tone in which small towns were portrayed. Perfectly describes how every relationship, even the one least important to us, can be complex. And how people, many times unintentionally, can bring sorrow and disappointment to others.

  2. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Certain Women

    ***1/2. While the last story is a little jewel of emotion, I wasn't concerned at all by the second part of the film in spite of Michelle Williams and Rene Auberjonois. The first story is a Laura Dern one woman show. Recommended.

  3. James Mackin's rating of the film Certain Women

    The Michele Williams story felt a bit superfluous, as well as short, but upon reflection, I can see why it was included. Kelly Reichardt still does an amazing job. Lily Gladstone was breathtakingly terrific.

  4. Linda Wittgenstein's rating of the film Certain Women

  5. Bekriah M's rating of the film Certain Women

    Indie mystery and intertwining stories.

  6. o_oo's rating of the film Certain Women

    all the stars for lily gladstone

  7. Ulrich JARLØV's rating of the film Certain Women

    The first two stories were slight - insignificant. But the last one featuring Lily Gladstone and Kristen Stewart was deeply moving - heartbreaking.

  8. fearraigh's rating of the film Certain Women

    It's familiar stuff from Reichardt but it's none the worse off for that. The quiet intensity of Meloy's short stories is deftly rendered, the Montana landscape looks stunning and the performances are terrific. This is very good, low-key filmmaking.

  9. Diderot's rating of the film Certain Women

    The fact that Lily Gladstone didn't get any recognition for her performance here is proof enough that awards are never about noting actual talent. Kelly Reichardt is also one of the most underrecognized directors in America.

  10. José Neves's rating of the film Certain Women

    PC. Made from short stories, the film adopts this structure, which implies a perception of incompleteness or draft in its structure. The filmmaker is an exception to the rule of current North-American cinema (if she filmed in the 1970s, she would be a kind of Martin Ritt or Pollack), filming adult stories rigorously framed with a strong awareness of film's space and time. It turns out that...

    Intriguingly minimalist & engaging character study.

  12. msmichel's rating of the film Certain Women

    The distinct cinematic voice of director Kelly Reichardt is well represented by her latest work; an adaptation of some short stories by Maile Meloy. Reichardt's skill in capturing the inner voice of her characters in a moving and emphatic way makes for an unique (if somewhat dry) viewing experience that offers exceptional performances and strong cinematography by Christopher Blauveit capturing the Montana setting.

  13. Mugino's rating of the film Certain Women

    I bristle at facile comments that write off Reichardt as a minimalist auteur, as if a paucity of rapid movement or extremes creates a vacuum. Every moment -- whether quiet, funny or awkward -- is so brimming with motivations, choices, reactions, and reflections that even the things we don't see are imbued with the weight of existence. For a film so "minimal", it lingers with permanence.

  14. xuxuxush's rating of the film Certain Women

    sparse, atmospheric, slow burning

  16. Ann Burden's rating of the film Certain Women

  17. JanaMat's rating of the film Certain Women

  18. Felicity Green's rating of the film Certain Women

    A captivating triptych of the lives of confused, yet driven women in small town USA.

  20. astygianelysium's rating of the film Certain Women

    Pockets of silence line the lives of people who have nothing to say to each other yet still profoundly affect each other's lives, sharing little more than mutual separation and an interval of love. Felt cleaved by a universal loneliness after watching this, even though Reichardt is expert at letting the local speak through its silences, each landscape offering only the opacity of its sublimity.

  21. DSPRKY's rating of the film Certain Women

    Slow-moving but easy to watch. I can't stand Michelle Williams, but parts one and three make up for it in spades.

  22. jaume claret muxart's rating of the film Certain Women

    Crítica: http://claretjaume.wixsite.com/jaumeclaretmuxart/copia-de-lo-tuyo-y-tu "...Su intimista mirada es serena, precisa, tranquila, hermosa, contenida, pero sobre todo fina" "...La prestigiosa directora expone estas historias con una sutileza admirable, sin conocer el pasado de las protagonistas, sin interesarse por el futuro o dejandolo vivo, narrando en un pequeño espacio en el tiempo."

  23. Daniel Roque's rating of the film Certain Women

    The first two segments were a bit average, but the third one, about the Brokeback Mountain cowgirls was worth the wait. I would rate ★★★★ if Jamie and Beth's (un)love story was a standalone short film.

  24. Peter's rating of the film Certain Women

    A wonderful film, Chekhovian in its understatement. Some beautiful cinematography too.
