Highly Suspect Reviews: Never Look Away

  • by
Never Look Away Movie Review

Are you ready for over three hours of German Academy Award-nominated viewing? Well, our critics Alan and Lara sure were. Now you can hear for yourself whether it’s worth your time to see that Best Foreign Language film nominee and I think I can safely say that they voted AYE. The story follows the life of art student Kurt Barnert (Tom Schilling), who is loosely based on the famed painter Gerhard Richter (who disavows the movie, but whatever). It follows decades of his life, his love story, the Nazis, the Russians, and more. Despite its running time, it sounds like our reviewers found it mesmerizing. But don’t trust me, listen to the review right here.
