Big Sur


"'Big Sur' rises and fades, shifts and moves, through movements and melodies, singing a beautifully sad song for an era and a man who lost his way." - Kevin Jagernauth, IndieWire

"Filming a truly immersive and dimensional adaptation of a Kerouac novel remains an ongoing challenge for any filmmaker, but Polish’s film comes closer than most, while adding another layer of complexity to the author’s venerable reputation." - Justin Lowe, The Hollywood Reporter

"Gorgeously photographed on the central California coast with lingering shots of the crashing surf and shafts of sunlight through redwoods, it offers a vision of paradise that its restless, frenzied characters can only dimly appreciate."; "Filmed without a trace of sentimentality, 'Big Sur' is an achingly sad last hurrah." - Stephen Holden, The New York Times
