Critic Reviews for Mr. North

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

It's as if the qualities that, at his best, made Huston great had been magically bequeathed to all his heirs.

January 16, 2020 | Full Review…

The premise is sweet and innocent and the production is handsome, but the film moves slowly and doesn't really hold our attention.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Encourages us to turn our attentions to the art of healing, the choices involved in personal ethics, and the little virtues of life.
