Critic Reviews for God's Country

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (11)

It's not perfect -- the symbolism cup overfloweth here, and don't get us started on the main character's backstory -- but Newton's performance and a palpable f----you-patriarchy righteousness pack a serious punch.

A film that understands both form and content, merging the two in a story that feels less like a piece of suspenseful entertainment and more like a warning.

It's a movie that keeps one eye on this local dustup and the other on a long, sorry sweep of American conquest and neglect.

Julian Higgins' auspicious feature debut employs genre violence to make social revolution explosively real.

January 27, 2022 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

This is a spoiled land, presented confidently and with a contemporary focus that offers a nuanced take on white and male supremacy.

January 26, 2022 | Full Review…

Provocative, raising critical questions about boundaries, environmental stewardship, community, inclusion, grief and more. It is, however, a slow burn, requiring patience and attention.
