    How can a film look so radiant and be so hollow? show more

    Bob Graham San Francisco Chronicle

    Astonishing visualizations of the afterlife are coupled with a drawn-out allegory about communication between the living and the dead that becomes something of a trial to sit through. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    So breathtaking, so beautiful, so bold in its imagination, that it's a surprise at the end to find it doesn't finally deliver. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    What Dreams May Come has the sensibilities of an art film placed into a big-budget feature with an A-list cast. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Too bad. What dreams may come, indeed, when such enticing foreplay ends with a consummation devoutly to be missed. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    This visually inventive fantasy paints the wide screen with colorful effects, but its psychological and spiritual ideas rarely rise above "new age" fuzziness. show more

    A scary example of bad movies happening to good people. show more

    Kim Newman Empire

    This is one of those failures that has so many near-great things that it almost gets by on guts. show more

    Chris Gore Film Threat

    What's so disappointing is that the film had so much potential as a concept. The story slowly degenerates into a plodding, sappy bore. show more

    I was completely surprised by this surreal, unusual and beautiful love story. Cannot believe that I haven\'t heard anything about ********** a \"must-see\" for any movie fan. Not only was it a touching story, but the portrayal (directing????--from me, a novice) was fantastic!!

    TODAY IS SEPTEMBER 24 2011, I ************ THIS MOVIE AGAIN. IT IS AN ABSOLUTE \"MUST SEE\" FOR EVERYONE ON THIS EARTH. THE STORY AND THE BEAUTY OF ALL THE VISUAL EFFECTS IS \"A WORK OF ART\" IN ITSELF. ROBIN WILLIAMS AND THE REST OF THE \"STARS\" WERE ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE AND SURELY HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN HEAVEN FOR BRINGING THIS STORY TO LIFE FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD. THANK YOU SO MUCH
