Cannot put into words how unwatchable this garbage is. Any so called critic would have to pass a polygraph before I believed they did. You'll fall asleep way before you get to watch an overweight fisherman do it. That's right part of this movie is a fat guy falling asleep in front of a tv.

Don't buy it.

The result is a self-conscious tone poem concocted from oblique camera angles, shots held longer than it takes a tadpole to reach maturity and nighttime images enhanced with a psychedelic glow. An alternate title for it might be "David Lynch, Gone Fishin'." Full Review

Leviathan, a product of the Sensory Ethnography Lab at Harvard, offers not information but immersion: 90 minutes of wind, water, grinding machinery and piscine agony. Full Review

Leviathan is a titanic achievement, a visceral overload whose impact registers immediately and with great force. Full Review

The adventurous souls who stick with it, however, will find head-spinning images and a cumulative impact that does, in fact, amount to a story. Full Review

The experience of Leviathan is wholly singular, without context, enveloping and immersive. In some ways, it might very well be the most terrifying picture of the year. Full Review
