O que se diz lá fora sobre MUD, de Jeff Nichols:
«MUD poses as a mere adolescent adventure tale but explores a rich vein of grown-up concerns, exploring codes of honor, love and family too solid to be shaken by modernizing forces.»
Peter Debruge, Variety.
«Mr. Nichols’s screenplay is perhaps a little too heavily plotted, especially toward the end, when everything comes together neatly and noisily, but he more than compensates with graceful rhythm, an unfussy eye for natural beauty and a sure sense of character and place.»
A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
«Jeff Nichols’ much-anticipated follow-up to his breakthrough second feature TAKE SHELTER feels less adventurous and unsettling but remains a well carpentered piece of work marked by some fine performances and resilient thematic fiber.»
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.
«There's something old-fashioned about MUD, but if you allow yourself to settle into its leisurely pace, it will reward you. If he were alive today, Mark Twain would approve.»
Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly.
«MUD is as unmoving as it is because it doesn’t aspire to be anything other than a competent anti-fairy tale in which the paint-by-number morals are enforced by equally obvious main protagonists.»
Simon Abrams, The Playlist.
