“The greatest reward of Old Henry is Mr. Nelson’s performance. Though he’s never been conventionally handsome — and his character this time is insistently scruffy — he holds the camera with a character actor’s craft and a movie star’s art.”
Joe Morgenstern, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
“Old Henry” makes a solid, honorable go of proving once again that the foursquare western isn’t dead…”
Ben Kenigsberg, THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Old Henry is the best revisionist Western since Unforgiven.”
Kaveh Jalinous, UNDER THE RADAR
“Tim Blake Nelson is acting up a storm, never more so than in “Old Henry,” in which he gives what I can only call the “Citizen Kane” of Tim Blake Nelson hayseed varmint performances.”
Owen Gleiberman, VARIETY
“An indie variation on “Unforgiven,” albeit with an utterly delicious third-act twist. It is a dark, sorrowful and powerful meditation on aging, guilt, buried secrets and redemption — and like Eastwood’s masterpiece, there’s a twist toward the end that is both startling and completely satisfying.”
Steve Pond, THE WRAP
