[A] slickly assembled tale of redemption and reconciliation.

August 8, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Art can be affirmation, but affirmation cannot be art.

March 21, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

The movie works for the same reason the song does: It lightens the burden of the pain people are shouldering today, and gives them something to look forward to.

This is an interesting idea, executed with a reductive, tin-eared understanding of what constitutes art to go along with a faith-based movie's reductive, tin-eared understanding of what constitutes entertainment.

Like so many faith-based efforts, I Can Only Imagine suffers from a terminal case of self-importance.

March 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Why is the movie made from a universally healing single such an earnest, awkward dud? Well, partly because the movie can't settle on what's more important, the family stuff or the ascension of the song as a fame-inducing anthem.
