Ulee's Gold is a story of redemption, and Nunez doesn't make redemption look any easier than it is.
90
Ulee's Gold stands out for its sureness, its quiet emotional force and writer-director Victor Nunez's ability to find and nurture the mystery and power in the events of an ordinary life.
90
Beautiful and heartfelt, an oasis of humanity in a season of furious hyperbole.
88
Chicago Sun-Times
Nunez has a gift for finding the essence, the soul, of his actors.
88
USA Today
An emotionally honest low-ebber that builds to a satisfying wrap-up.
80
L.A. Weekly
Nunez is a master at rendering emotionally complex, ordinary folk into the kind of unassuming heroes that don't much appear in American films anymore.
70
Film.com
A very pleasant experience in watching life unfold in its own direction and time.
70
The New Republic
Still, flaws and all, we have to be grateful to Nunez for persisting in his independence.
60
New Times (L.A.)
Nunez's direction is as self-consciously homey as a floral welcome mat.
50
Worthy but dull.
