Critic Reviews

  1. It's a generous document of cultural passage, and not incidentally, the sexiest naturally nudist American movie since Murnau's "Tabu." Moss, however, keeps himself out of the picture and neglects massive amounts of context that might've made Same River a stunner.
  2. The filmmaker presents a portrait of the emotional and physical effects of aging and maturity that is occasionally poignant but not particularly deep.
  3. 50
    Only marginally interesting.
  4. Reviewed by: Ty Burr
    Youth recedes, the body decays, life is a compromised thing: These are truths. But they're not fresh truths, and Moss's riverdogs are hardly the first to have discovered them.
  5. The movie offers glimmers of truth about the aging process, but there is always the sense that Moss only wades knee-high into this river.
