Critic Reviews for Golf In The Kingdom

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (4)

For anyone coming in cold, this can be a ponderous cinematic experience.

Golf may be the world's dullest spectator sport, not counting soccer: it takes a long time for not much to happen. By that standard, "Golf in the Kingdom" captures the game perfectly.

A story comprised of pretentious meditative fragments.

July 26, 2011

Filmmaker Susan Streitfeld takes all of the mysticism at face value, shutting the audience out of pleasures that are discussed but rarely shown.
