What we think

Empire of Light, ironically, asks us to admire its alleged love for the movies but never finds a way to make us feel it for ourselves.

What others think

My own rule is that any film, on any subject, if it is any good, is already a love letter to the movies.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
Patchy, but contains a few kernels of truth, and Colman is sublime.
David Jenkins Little White Lies
Ultimately, the film fails its two leads, burdening them with leaden dialogue and unresolved arcs.
Pamela Hutchinson Sight and Sound
