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

Beautiful photography. Well-considered story line.

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." Full Review

It is gripping and haunting, but also coy and elusive. Full Review

Much of the film's final act is given to alienated walking, which too often plays as an abstract study of triangular arrangements in which non-speaking figures move across a barren terrain. Full Review

Bernal and Furstenberg exist within this meditative space with all the ease and unease of a couple still trying each other on for size. The forces that push and pull them feel so rooted in reality that if not for the layers of meaning it might seem a complete improvisation. Full Review

Gorgeous surroundings don't make up for sulky, feuding travel companions. Full Review
