What the critics are saying:

A wild and compelling work that simultaneously evokes the influence of such disparate filmmakers as Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog, and Sergio Leone. – Peter Sobczynski

This surprising account of a curious cross-continental quest already feels timeless… – Peter Debruge Variety

The movie’s depictions of landscapes both sere and fertile, and its all-but-palpable portrayals of isolation, have echoes of the best work of Werner Herzog and Lucrecia Martel. – Glenn Kenny New York Times
