Both a beautiful film and a disturbing one, and the connection between those two characteristics makes it the most disquieting of documentaries.
75
Premiere
This is one movie that's guaranteed to linger in your mind after you leave the theater, whether you want it to or not.

Salon.com
I still have unanswered moral questions about the film -- unanswered because unanswerable, I suspect -- but it's a beautiful, wrenching, horrifying work of cinema, unlike anything I have ever seen or will see again.

Variety
Compelling result is handled with enough dignified artistry to quell most fears of exploitation.

This eerie and indelible documentary about suicide juxtaposes transcendent beauty with personal tragedy.
67
The A.V. Club
The Bridge packs a visceral emotional wallop. How could it not? But along with plenty of difficult questions, Steel's film leaves a sour, disturbing aftertaste.

Village Voice
Ghoulish documentary.
50
L.A. Weekly
The result is an attractive, well-intentioned film that is surprisingly dull and uninvolving.

Chicago Tribune
Despite the proficient technique, after a while you may feel you're watching a particularly scenic snuff film.

Chicago Reader
This is a new form of obscenity that might be called suicide porn. It's not just the voyeuristic surveillance that's obscene, but the use of suicide footage as counterpoint to other stories as they're told. Steel shows no special insight into the subject, though even that couldn't justify such hideousness.
