Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Vagueness is the hallmark of Marc Meyers' sophomore outing."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"It's safe to say that 'Harvest' is a modest film, but those are often the ones that pull on our emotions the most."
‑ Dan Lybarger, KC Active
"It's a movie about a life, and life can be kinda funny and kinda poignant, even when it's full of ordinary things, like age, sickness and loss."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"The movie drives home the point expressed so eloquently by Siv that "family is the only thing in life that really matters." Some may find the viewing experience hits too close to home and will be in tears remembering similar personal incidents."
‑ Keith Cohen, Entertainment Spectrum
"If this isn't "King Lear" or Chekhov, "Harvest" shows the truth of life as it is lived, growing messier and more complicated as the days dwindle and last chances loom."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Robert Loggia gets in touch with his more vulnerable side while never letting go of the wiseguy, duking it out with mortality and doing Old Man And The Sea. Though as he describes it, via bicycle as opposed to a boat, serving as a chariot to oblivion."
‑ Prairie Miller, WBAI Radio
"There's little to be harvested here, save dreary, cliché-filled dramaturgy and unaffecting performances."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"A modest but terrifically acted independent feature. In just his second feature film, director Marc Meyers hits the right buttons."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"This is largely a non-narrative piece, the director employing a slice-of-life-in-crisis approach that only works if the characters or the situations are sharply drawn. Neither are."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Village Voice
"Harvest finds a comfortable naturalism in the rhythms of daily life."
‑ Rob Humanick, Slant Magazine
"An appealing and universally relevant drama about the dynamics of death and loss within the family circle."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
