This is a great movie, It keeps you interested and keeps you wondering. Great acting overall. I really enjoyed this little film. I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a great plot along with good editing and music. A MUST see.

The Hollywood Reporter
An ambitious, visually handsome production which fails to ignite. Full Review

The New York Times
Like his scripts for "21 Grams" and "Babel," this one makes heavy use of happenstance and temporal displacement, and like them, too, it depends on ideas about human behavior that can only be called preposterous. Full Review

The main drawbacks of The Burning Plain are its intentionally coy narrative and a zero-hour revelation that's ill-thought-out and generates some pretty chintzy psychobabble. It's the wobbliest element in an admirable, complex and frustrating movie. Full Review

Variety
Many of the weaknesses and few of the strengths of Guillermo Arriaga as a scripter are evident in his directing debut, The Burning Plain. Full Review
