Critic Reviews for Spring Night, Summer Night

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Blending fervent quasi-documentary curiosity with expressive fury, Anderson-working with nonprofessional actors-embeds practical details of the town's history and struggles in the tense, myth-drenched drama of liberation and retribution.

The documentary-style portraits of the characters' impoverished neighbors display the influence of Italian neorealism, and the shadow-heavy photography at times evokes German expressionism.

The resurrection of an important piece of American independent cinema, a jagged, piercing look at small town life and the ruinous effects of economic depression that feels more relevant than ever.

'Spring Night, Summer Night' is, unlike most ordinary movies, a snapshot of what the American Dream really looks like.

June 6, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

This wasn't just a nice, obscure film that would speak to a few cinephiles like ourselves, but a compelling and beautiful drama that held its own with the very best of independent cinema.
