Critic Reviews



Based on 6 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
Crammed with color and imagination, every one of Jake Pollock's gorgeously photographed images feels timelessly suspended between innocence and awareness.
All the popcorn movies you're planning to see will still be at the multiplex if you wait another week. This shimmering beauty will be gone in a flash. Catch it while you can.
Slant Magazine
A modestly charming bit of whimsy that hopes to speak to anyone who experienced a sense of emotional injustice during their formative years.
Village Voice
Lin fills in the gaps with some handsome CG-fantasy sequences and a rather obvious central metaphor involving a missing puzzle piece, but he can't make up for the fact that the film wants to say more about the fragility of childhood than it's capable of communicating through its characters and their delicate, perpetually uncertain situations.
The cumulative effect is more that of a handsomely crafted museum piece than a moving, emotional journey.
Boxoffice Magazine
Though rife with clichés, Starry Starry Night has just enough nostalgic melancholy and quiet whimsy to make its coming-of-age narrative and elegy to childhood emotionally and visually compelling.
