Critic Reviews for Elephant Boy

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

The film moves leisurely, but with rare charm and visual interest.

March 25, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Fiction and documentary footage rub shoulders uneasily, but the latter (shot by Flaherty in India) is vividly watchable.

January 26, 2006 | Full Review…

...as in all Flaherty films, the camera becomes so intimate as to reveal the very soul of the subject. If elephants have souls, they're in that film.

Oone of those rare pictures that are made to please everybody, and actually succeed in doing it.

October 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Those who know Flaherty's previous work will not be disappointed in his work in this film and the film must be seen for it in spite of the additions and contortions.

February 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Robert Flaherty's craftsmanship shows in one of his best Hollywood features.
