Movie Reviews

Time Out New York - 10/10 by Joshua Rothkopf Funny and heartbreaking, this is a movie that would have made the '80s-era Jonathan Demme, attuned to American anxieties, blush with pride.
Boxoffice Magazine - 10/10 by Ray Greene Higher Ground is a weird film with some very nice moments, but its odd and offbeat combination of comic touches, serious spiritual subject matter and occasional surrealist interludes never quiet gels.
Spirituality and Practice - 10/10 by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat A spiritual drama that challenges viewers to map their own journey of faith, asking questions, having doubts, and seeking a closer connection with God.
Village Voice - 9/10 by Melissa Anderson Even with her beatific face (the actress looks like one of Parmigianino's Madonnas), Farmiga is never wholly believable as a woman shaken by a crisis of belief.
AV Club - 9/10 by Tasha Robinson A shapeless collection of tonally diverse moments strung together with little organizing principle beyond the protagonist's identity struggles.
LarsenOnFilm - 9/10 by Josh Larsen ...skeptical and yearning at the same time.
Washington City Paper - 9/10 by Tricia Olszewski Kudos to Higher Ground for respectfully presenting a drama that just happens to be about Christianity. If only that weren't the best thing it had going for it.
St. Paul Pioneer Press - 9/10 by Chris Hewitt (St. Paul) There's no sense of life or texture, with many basic questions that would give the movie context unanswered: When is it supposed to take place? Where, exactly, are we? Do any of the people in Corinne's sect have jobs?
Hollywood & Fine - 9/10 by Marshall Fine A solid film by a self-assured director, one who didn't have an axe to grind dealing with a subject that could have been spun that way.
Rolling Stone - 9/10 by Peter Travers Farmiga expertly guides a large and gifted ensemble cast and proves as fearless a director as she is an actress. She lights up Higher Ground and makes it funny, touching and vital.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert In a world where believers and agnostics are polarized and hold simplified ideas about each other, it takes a step back and sees faith as a series of choices that should be freely made.
NPR - 9/10 by Jeannette Catsoulis What follows is something rarely seen in American movies: a sincerely humane examination of what it means to experience a crisis of faith. Tender, bittersweet and often gently comedic, Corinne's 20-year journey toward (and around, and away from) her God has a loose, searching rhythm that's engrossingly unpredictable.
