Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
The trains of thought stirred up by the film's contemplation of what is here and what is there - and where you are - are endless and stimulating. And the movie is embellished with spectacularly beautiful, enigmatic bursts of abstract imagery.Stephen Holden, New York Times, 04.12.2012
"Here" seems motivated by a tone of searching and yearning, not of finding a single way. As Foster's character says at one point, "Getting lost was the goal."Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, 04.26.2012
The film captures some impressive landscapes and layers an eclectic mix of original and traditional Armenian music over its unhurried travel time. But unless you count doing a lot of vodka shots, this is a dramatically uneventful two hours.David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter, 04.13.2012
The dreamy, feverish beauty of these sequences just barely balances out the pretension of the exposition.Karina Longworth, Village Voice, 04.10.2012
