Critic Reviews for Lilies

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

The central relationships are compelling and intriguing, and Greyson is so good at freshly telling a story that we are pulled right in.

Greyson deserves much credit for realizing an outrageous theatrical conceit with clarity, consistency, and an arsenal of cinematic ideas.

Traumatically bizarre.

Brent Carver is wonderful here. A film unfortunately that is hidden in the vaults because, I assume, of its content. Should be frequently shown as a fine example of Canadian film.
