Critic Reviews for All Day and a Night

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (11)

A nervy, deeply felt drama that gets a little lost on its winding path to redemption but still finds a way home.

May 8, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…

"All Day and a Night" lingers and sometimes meanders in that gray zone, where the story can accrue texture and feeling and emerge as more than the sum of its plot mechanics.

It's a matter of semantics, but if this is a film that often flubs the little things, it gets the most important detail right.

May 4, 2020 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Despite the blasts of violence, the film feels like a meditation on this life, and one that takes its time even as we know where it's going.

This film has been done too many times before and done better.

May 1, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A viewer might be excused for feeling frustration over Jah's terrible decisions for most of the running time, even as the script struggles to contextualize those decisions as the helpless flailing of a stunted young man.
