    Keith Uhlich Time Out New York

    The Aatsinki siblings never rise past a kind of rotely anonymous masculinity, and overall the film tends to lull rather than engage the senses. show more

    Sheri Linden Los Angeles Times

    Aatsinki is a work of cinéma vérité of the highest order: vivid, immersive and unflinching. show more

    Chris Klimek Village Voice

    While some of the workers' chitchat is translated via subtitles, long passages of it are not. Oreck's imagery of the forbidding Arctic landscape through its seasonal transformations (the movie covers roughly a year) is eloquent enough. show more
