Village Voice
I won't pretend it makes for a happy night at the cinema, and it may require a leap of faith to succumb to Goldberger's spell. But I leapt, and found it enthralling up to the point where this legitimately weird movie capitulates to the most conventional catharsis. I'd rather watch Goldberger fail than a hundred others succeed. Full Review

Already gasping for breath in its opening scenes, picture takes two bleak, unyielding hours to finally expire. Full Review

New York Daily News
Goldberger's stubbornly insular script - adapted from a novel by Harry Crews - might have fared better on stage, where the story would feel more contained than suffocating. But by the time you crawl across this finish line, you'll know just how those sluggish the birdsfeel. Full Review
James Greenberg
The Hollywood Reporter
Loaded with obtuse symbolism, the film is not only hard to understand, it isn't much fun trying to figure it out. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
Set in North Florida and based on a book by Harry Crews, The Hawk Is Dying is a dreary study of male angst groaning beneath the weight of its own symbolism. Full Review
