Sweetgrass Poster

“Magnificent… Wonderful… The first essential movie of this young year… Astonishingly beautiful… Nature overwhelms the screen and even minds…”

MANOHLA DARGIS – THE NEW YORK TIMES

 
“Impressive. Bracing. Majestic. The list of things you won’t get from Sweetgrass is almost as impressive as the film itself.”

ANTHONY LANE – THE NEW YORKER

 
“Breathtaking… close to heaven… Fascinating.”

MELISSA ANDERSON, VILLAGE VOICE

 
“A one-of-a-kind experience. At once epic-scale and earthbound… a mad cross between Howard Hawks’ Red River and Grass…with a dash of Tex Avery’s Drag-along Droopy.”

RONNIE SCHEIB – VARIETY

 
“Breathtaking, abstract Western. Awe-inspiring and often hilarious. Big Sky country has never looked more spectacular… and, after Sweetgrass, it will never look the same.”

WAYNE LORENZO TITUS – FILMLINC

 
“Astounding… shockingly intimate. A grand documentary Western.”

FARIHAH ZAMAN – REVERSE SHOT

 
“Monumental… An anthropological work of art.”

ROBERT KOEHLER – CINEMA SCOPE

 
“A film of subtle shifts and slowly dawning disclosures…Who would have thought it would take a formalist project about sheep to burrow so deeply into the secret sorrows of the working class?”

— ANDREW SCHENKER, ART FORUM

 
“Awe-inspiring… Hilariously weird.”

— JIM HOBERMAN, VILLAGE VOICE
