The Lost City of Z REVIEWS

  • Massive let down

    March 28th, 2017

    It's a really good example of how a terrible script can completely destroy a movie. There are too many things which make no sense to list, but the key issues are:. For a film that seems so keen to virtue-signal about white ignorance and racism, it does nothing to explain to us Fawcett's theories about the people of Z. Who were they? How did their ...

  • Exploitation and exploration

    February 22nd, 2017

    Based on the true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett, who made several expeditions to the lost city of Z, believed to be the remains of El Dorado in the Brazilian jungle. The movie follows three of these expeditions and first picks up his life with a long introduction from his military career onwards. The movie becomes only interesting with t...

  • A stunningly shot and classically told story

    March 24th, 2017

    This is a wonderful film that restores faith in the traditional art of movie making. Richly shot on 35mm by DoP Darius Khondji, every frame feels like an exquisite painting, carefully constructed by a filmmaker at the top of his game in James Gray. The backdrops of England, the Western Front and Amazonia all have interest on every inch of the scre...

  • Beautiful film with extraordinary acting

    April 18th, 2017

    I thought this film, though long, was spectacular. It was about sacrifice and exploration and having the ability to stand up, in the face of ridicule, and listen to your heart and follow it at all costs.. The acting was incredible. Charlie Hunnam as Percy Fawcett was brilliant and transporting. Rob Pattinson and Sienna Miller, too, were incredible...

  • Biopic of the end of empire

    March 26th, 2017

    I enjoyed the movie - it was a bit paint by numbers but it covered a huge area of his life and his motivations, it was also a story of decline, the derring-do of the British empire and particular type of hero. I think that he has been overlooked because he 'failed' but the film shows how he respected the cultures he found, in contrast to the other...

  • Should be renamed The Lost City of Zzzz...

    March 24th, 2017

    What was probably an incredibly interesting story has been turned into an incredibly dull film. Charlie Hunnam's Fawcett is as flat as roadkill and Robert Pattinson might as well have stayed at home in bed for all he brings to the tale. As for Angus Macfadyen; he obviously thought he was in a different movie entirely. Three times during this film ...

  • Where No Man Has Gone Before

    April 29th, 2017

    It's very rare in 2017 Hollywood that we get an epic like The Lost City of Z. Albeit noticeably flawed in many aspects, this film hearkens back to the days where exploration epics were a normalcy in the filmmaking world. . The strengths of The Lost City of Z lie with its unique journey the protagonist takes, and not necessarily with the protagonis...

  • Interesting portrait of a man, indeed but as a movie it almost lost me.

    April 15th, 2017

    It's one of those labor of loves it seems as the film felt like it was more interested in making an artistic narrative than it was about making money. I can respect that, but it was a boring movie for that reason. . The Lost city of Z is about a British explorer named Percy Fawcett who while on a survey mission in the amazon discovers evidence tha...

  • Exploration epic, stirring beyond belief

    April 16th, 2017

    One of the few films I've seen in recent memory that lingers on in a haunting way after you've seen it. It tells the story of Percy Fawcett, the British military officer and explorer who made it his life's work to discover an ancient civilization hidden deep in the Amazon jungle. Charlie Hunnam gives the best performance of his career so far as Fa...

  • If the book is as captivating as the film, I'm glad I haven't read it!

    March 29th, 2017

    I found the experience of watching this film to be akin to that of listening to a person living with dementia telling you about their life, with an adoring relative interjecting only to say "Oh he was lovely!" every now and then.. It is, in essence, a series of episodes vaguely summarising various events of Fawcett's life. Occasionally but briefly...
