Critic Reviews of "Men Go to Battle"Chicago ReaderAugust 25, 2016
As with other mumblecore projects, the plot is secondary to mood, naturalism, and the relationship between the two protagonists, but in this historical context that approach is more of a frustration than a virtue.Los Angeles TimesJuly 14, 2016
"Men Go to Battle" isn't always effective, in that way DIY filmmaking sometimes irritates by deliberately avoiding "moments." But as an offbeat lens through which to view an oft-mined era, it has a quiet pull.RogerEbert.comJuly 08, 2016
The acting here, like too much of the film, ends up registering as unfortunately amateurish.VarietyJuly 07, 2016
Striking in its evocation of a demanding time and place, this intimate drama about individual and national transformation heralds the arrival of an arresting new filmmaking voice ...Entertainment WeeklyJuly 07, 2016
Though the film never deeply transcends its basic thesis about the ramshackle lives of frustrated men, the final minutes are improbably touching for how the story eschews uplift in favor of a more honest conclusion.New York TimesJuly 07, 2016
With the exception of Ms. Korine, the performers often seem to have a hard time shaking off the aura of the contemporary. Nevertheless, there's much of value here.Movie MezzanineJuly 08, 2016
Light on plot and heavy on reflective imagery, the film operates as a restrained comedy, complete with the rhythms of a certain brand of American indie cinema, but not beholden to its tropes or clichés.Brooklyn MagazineJuly 08, 2016
The hyperlocal Men Go to Battle-a microbudget affair to which critics have justly applied the adjective "resourceful" ever since its premiere at Tribeca last spring-also has subtler ways of imbuing the historical past with a sense of immediacy.Under the RadarJuly 08, 2016
America was very different 150 years ago than it is now, and the filmmakers capture that well. They just do not do it under the microscope of the Civil War anywhere near as thoroughly as they had the opportunity or the foundation to.FlavorwireJuly 08, 2016
The result is an odd but invigorating movie, and an intoxicatingly gutsy and personal take on historical fiction.Little White LiesJuly 08, 2016
Hard not to admire its existence. Equally hard not to wish it was more daring.MetroJuly 07, 2016
Deep down it's not about authenticity so much as how time stomps on us all, and how major historical events occur outside of our perception.
