Critics Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
Southland Tales has a mood unlike anything I've seen: dread that morphs into kitsch and then back again. It's a film that tried my patience, and one I couldn't shake off.
Full review

TV Guide
Delivers equal parts overwrought tedium and mind-bending beauty, spiked with brilliant throwaway images that more than make up for Kelly's heavy-handed hot-button pretensions.

Great!
It's a cross between the Coen brothers and David Lynch. And that's just great. that goes for the soundtrack as well. Although a bit confusing a times, the movie has a story to tell. Don't bother with popcorn, it's not that kind of movie.

As the movie jumps from one incoherent scene to the next, you will find yourself banging your head against the nearest blunt object asking yourself..."what the #*$# is going on?"

Ummm confused. I think that the movie has been re-edited to the point of no return. This could have been great but the characters were so comic bookish that you lost interest in the characters. Lots of movies are based on comics or were made into...

If your IQ is under 135, you probably wont like this movie. That said, its the best irony-laden, post-9/11 political satire about porn star revolutionaries and quantum mechanics that one could hope for.

Well, it certainly wasnt mainstream. This movie feels like Kelly wanted to push the boundaries further of abstractness than Donnie Darko and he achieved that, but also went so far as to miss the point really of sitting down and watching a movie. It...

I went into Southland Tales with high expectations, and left with a splitting headache. The plot is busy and there are tons of characters, all of whom you will recognize from other films. The movie is to long and none of the stories really pull...

Richard Kelly is a little too full of himself. Donnie Darko was alright, this movie was wretched. While the two movies aren't necessarily connected in any way, it feels as though Kelly ran out of ideas and implemented a lot of imagery and dialogue...

This movie is a complete train wreck - and not like "can't take your eyes off it" train wreck but more like WTF were all these people thinking? It's got the Rock, SMG, and Kevin Smith about whom I would have previously said I'd watch any movie, but...
