Critic Reviews of "Lone Star"John Hartl Seattle TimesMarch 22, 2013
[A] complex and rewarding new Texas murder mystery.Joe Leydon VarietyMarch 26, 2009
A richly textured and thoroughly engrossing drama that ranks with indie filmmaker John Sayles' finest work.Geoff Andrew Time OutFebruary 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 TodayJanuary 01, 2000
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-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
John Sayles' "Lone Star" contains so many riches, it humbles ordinary movies.Janet Maslin New York TimesJanuary 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 ColeSmithey.comSeptember 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 eFilmCritic.comMarch 11, 2008
The latest chapter in Sayles' ongoing great American novel.Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.ComJanuary 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 filmsMichael Dequina TheMovieReport.comSeptember 14, 2005
Well over two hours with not a single minute wasted.Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.comApril 03, 2005
John Sayles is in fine form here, thanks in no small part to an excellent cast.Steve Crum Kansas City KansanDecember 28, 2004
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)
