    The movie's pleasures are acting pleasures, but the movie doesn't compel attention and never seems like more than the frame for a performance. show more

    Felix (Duvall) simply wants to host his own goodbye, maybe have a band, and the reasons why are the reasons Get Low is essential viewing. That, and the acting. show more

    A very good movie! Robert Duval seems to find the best parts to showcase his acting style; or they find him. This is one of his best since Lonesome Dove. There are several other notable artists in the film, and all do an amazing job. I changed my ming; this is a GREAT movie!

    Robert Duvall gives a 5-star performance, with a very strong supporting ********************* an unusual, sensitive, thought-provoking story about "funeral plans," without being either morbid or mushy. This is film-making ****** best.
