Arizona Republic
The lyrical book is filled with touches of magical realism. On the other hand, the movie is sorely lacking in both magic and realism. It’s all very empty and blah. Full Review

What might have made Bless Me, Ultima more powerful would have been additional scenes with its mystical title character. Full Review
Connie Ogle
Miami Herald
The film isn’t overlong. But it tries to fit so many themes into its brief running time — that it merely touches on most conflicts instead of exploring them in depth or with any delicacy. Full Review
Glenn Heath Jr.
Slant Magazine
The film's interest in social themes remains background fodder within a far more generic good-versus-evil narrative. Full Review
Joe Williams
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Obviously a labor love, and its very existence in a godforsaken marketplace is a minor miracle. Full Review
