  • Critic Reviews of "Lone Star"

    John Hartl Seattle Times

    [A] complex and rewarding new Texas murder mystery.

    Joe Leydon Variety
    March 26, 2009

    A richly textured and thoroughly engrossing drama that ranks with indie filmmaker John Sayles' finest work.

    Geoff Andrew Time Out
    February 09, 2006

    Sayles' witty, vividly demotic dialogue knocks even Tarantino for six, the characterisations are uniformly colourful and credible, the soundtrack and the widescreen camerawork exemplary ...

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Sayles' latest never bores during its 21/4-hour unreeling. But neither does it soar, despite finessing a complex flashback narrative set in 1957 and present-day.

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times
    January 01, 2000

    John Sayles' "Lone Star" contains so many riches, it humbles ordinary movies.

    Janet Maslin New York Times
    January 01, 2000

    The great, stirring epic "Lone Star" stands as a peak in the career of John Sayles, who already has such admirably serious films to his credit.

    Cole Smithey
    September 27, 2012

    One of several of writer-director John Sayles's masterpieces -alongside such unforgettable films as "City of Hope," "Matewan" and "The Secret of Roan Inish" - "Lone Star" is an absorbing neo-Western mystery told in a haunting magical realist tone.

    Rob Gonsalves

    The latest chapter in Sayles' ongoing great American novel.

    Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com
    January 24, 2007

    Lone Star, one of Sayles best and most popular films, explores the historical strain between the Mexican and American communities in Texas. Though a bit didactic (too many sermons), it's well acted and visually more satisfying than his other films

    Michael Dequina

    Well over two hours with not a single minute wasted.

    Scott Weinberg
    April 03, 2005

    John Sayles is in fine form here, thanks in no small part to an excellent cast.

    Steve Crum Kansas City Kansan

    It is the structure of the film, including the smooth-subtle pans, turning present to past and back to present, that really awe. (published 7-19-96)
