Critic Reviews of "Above And Below"New York TimesApril 14, 2016
The montage of Mr. Steiner's movie actively looks for links among his subjects: fierce self-sufficiency, absent but not forgotten family, and unachieved dreams. But the most stirring moments can be the stillest ones ...Village VoiceApril 14, 2016
The film is a wonder of desert skies, slick tunnels, bumptious fence- and wall-climbing, and occasional staged reveries.VarietyMarch 31, 2016
Without the slightest sense of mockery, Steiner embraces the often-comedic details of their lives while revealing the ways in which they seem to have their priorities straight.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsDecember 29, 2016
Less than impressive film.The Young FolksApril 18, 2016
...Above and Below is a work of slick artistry but at the cost of something truly transcendent.Film Journal InternationalApril 15, 2016
Errol Morris appears to serve as the inspiration for Nicolas Steiner's documentary, which possesses some of that director's artistry but lacks his inquisitive spirit.The Film StageApril 14, 2016
Its two hours become overwrought with cutesy flashes that flit along the edges of the honest, hardscrabble tales Steiner has unearthed.Slant MagazineApril 10, 2016
The documentary lingers on silences and reveals its subjects only through moments of quotidian behavior.We Got This CoveredApril 05, 2016
Above and Below is an immersive viewing experience that requires patience and open-mindedness, but it's richly rewarding for those that make it though to the end.Screen InternationalMarch 31, 2016
The film is beautifully shot by cinematographer Markus Nestroy, and while perhaps rather languid at times there is a certain poetry to these unusual lives.
