"It’s bold, captivating cinema, with a soundtrack that threatens to never leave your head. "
- Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail
"In Andrea Arnold’s sublime film American Honey, freedom is relative, but every once in a while it can feel so damn good that the whole world disappears around it."
- Dominick Suzanne-Mayer, Consequence of Sound
"Part dreamy millennial picaresque, part distorted tapestry of Americana and part exquisitely illustrated iTunes musical, “Honey” daringly commits only to the loosest of narratives across its luxurious 162-minute running time. Yet it’s constantly, engrossingly active, spinning and sparking and exploding in cycles like a Fourth of July Catherine wheel."
- Guy Lodge, Variety
"It’s visually astonishing and often devastating, too. This might be the freshest film about young people in America since Larry Clark’s Kids."
- Rory O'Connor, The Film Stage
"It’s been a while since a film so powerfully evoked the thrilling possibilities and wasted pleasures of the open road. "
- Justin Chang, Variety
"It works best as a rowdy ensemble piece-sort of a co-ed, mobile, present-day version of Richard Linklater's Everybody Wants Some, examining the frayed bonds created among newly formed adults with few responsibilities."
- Mike D'Angelo, AV Club
"The film works best as a poignant character study, observing Star as she settles into her independence and figures out who she wants to be, framed by a vast physical landscape that stretches socioeconomically from privileged wealth to squalid poverty. There's a wonderful intimacy in the way Arnold examines young women in her films."
- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
"Its beating heart is in a story of youth. Reckless, fearless, joyous, always-moving youth. "
- Brian Tallerico,
"I don’t know how Ms. Arnold works the magic she does with her actors, whether amateur or professional — Mr. LaBeouf inhabits his role with sly charm and explosive ferocity — but it’s an expansion of what she started doing more than a decade ago in her remarkable “Wasp.”"
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"An easy-going gem that is at times funny, at times heartbreaking, at times scary -- but always, unfailingly engaging."
- Mike Scott, New Orleans Times-Picayune
