Consensus: As visually sumptuous as it is narratively spartan, Terrence Malick's Song to Song echoes elements of the writer-director's recent work -- for better and for worse.

Globe and Mail

The haughtily unenlightened can joke and snipe and snore all the want. As evinced by Song to Song, Malick is operating in top form. If only we'd be bothered to do the work of making sense of it.

It's a haunting, doleful meditation on sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the type of movie that can deeply move you and leave you wondering why.

Adelaide Review

...129 minutes worth of rich, idle, pretty drama queens warbling on about how hard their lives are and the burden of their messed-up relationships is simply too much to bear.

Terrence Malick's latest film isn't so much a movie as it is a freeform collection of whispers and beseeching looks.

"Song to Song" is Terrence Malick's first truly awful film.

Is time moving forward or back here? It's hard to tell but, despite some nice moments it's definitely going on too long.

This is the one with Ryan Gosling, and like Terrence Malick's two previous dramas it's a gauzy, improvised affair that looks like a photo essay out of Architectural Digest and regards its gorgeous, murmuring actors as if they were statuary.

"Song to Song" isn't the sleepy disappointment Malick's last two films were, but it's hard not to wish he'd wake up.

Alternate Ending

I cannot help but imagine that a version of the film which fully embraced its nature as an experimental film would be more satisfying and powerful.

Malick still has the visual touch but like To The Wonder, this is too self indulgent that weakens what is a mess of storytelling. The magic of the camera never… More
