The Press Reviews

  • Even though a lot of it looks gorgeous and carries the whiff of great importance it is ultimately stunted by a central event that isn’t worth the mystery that surrounds it. Full Review

  • An excellent novel about the Iraq War and its homefront fallout has been turned into a rather flat and disappointing film in The Yellow Birds. Full Review

  • A flat and listless piece of moviemaking, a monotonous indie dirge. Full Review

  • "The Yellow Birds" ... takes the form of a detective story, albeit one in which the mystery is as drearily protracted as it is ultimately unpersuasive. Full Review

  • A lyrical and bitterly sad drama about boys ruined by war, Alexandre Moors's film succeeds on style while falling short on plot. Full Review
