Critic Reviews of "Set Fire To The Stars"Los Angeles TimesJune 18, 2015
Gorgeous, evocative and well performed ...Entertainment WeeklyJune 13, 2015
The film wallows too much in its subject's glumness, but it comes alive whenever TV actor and co-writer Celyn Jones, whose only previous film credit is 2005's Lassie, plays Thomas as a big shaggy dog.RogerEbert.comJune 12, 2015
As tedious as "Set Fire to the Stars" gets, it remains watchable courtesy of the stunning black and white cinematography by Chris Seager.New York TimesJune 11, 2015
"Set Fire to the Stars" barely skims the surface of characters you wish had been given more dimension, but as a snapshot of postwar academia and its pretensions, it exerts a creepy fascination.NPRJune 11, 2015
Stylistically assured and tastefully appointed.New York Daily NewsJune 11, 2015
[A] watchable but thematically repetitive drama about Welsh poet Dylan Thomas' arrival in America in 1950.Seattle WeeklyNovember 12, 2015
Set Fire belongs to a genre that might be called Close Encounters With Greatness. They're not biopics, but glancing views by nobodies in a position to observe the backstage workings of genius. It's a formula, and Set Fire never gets beyond that formula.Cinemalogue.comJuly 10, 2015
Although the screenplay lacks insight into his creative process, the film playfully dissects stuffy postwar academic ostentation.The Young FolksJune 14, 2015
Set Fire to the Stars may be thematically uneven, but the aforementioned performances and Chris Seager's cinematography more than make up for it.Spirituality and PracticeJune 11, 2015
Story of the love/hate relationship between the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas and his tour-agent during his first visit to America.Movie MezzanineJune 11, 2015
It's a terrifically rounded portrait that captures both Thomas's depressive neuroses and his zest for life.
