  • Blink your eyes and you've lost track of them, but one of the interesting things about the experience is that you don't want to lose track; though the film moves as slowly as its hikers, it demands, and deserves, to be watched closely. (The cinematographer was Inti Briones.) show more

  • The story is carefully constructed, with moments that seem offhand initially, but are later revealed as crucial. show more

  • One of the finest of the year, The Loneliest Planet is based on a short story by Tom Bissell that's itself inspired by a famous Hemingway work, "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber." show more

    Need a 0 star option. What a hunk of bordom. I would not recommend this movie even to the most eccentric of my filmy friends. Put it on your not to watch list.

    Is there an option for 0 stars. Utter waste of time. This movie hinges on a \"moment\" that supposedly you can\'t miss... well I say miss it and the whole movie as well. The trailer is misleading it implies tension and drama; there is NOT any. Characters 0/10 Story 0/10 Camera 1/10 Music N/A
