"Tragic, beautiful, thought-provoking."
- Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"The best ensemble work of the year."
- Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Ringing with both ancient wisdom and searing relevance, Fences feels as if it’s been crafted for the ages, and for this very minute. "
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Though every performance is splendid, it’s Washington and Davis who create a mesmerizing symphony of emotion, finding both love and tragedy in every look, every line."
- Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times
"The two lead performances are stunningly complex and deeply human achievements from two of the finest actors working today."
- Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
"Wilson's play is such an extraordinary social statement, its bitter patriarch rivaling Willy Loman in the greatness of his smallness."
- J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Watching it is like getting a front-row seat to the beautifully mounted revival of a classic work of American drama, starring two stars who know and understand that text as well as any actors in the world."
- Dana Stevens, Slate
"This is Denzel Washington’s third at bat behind the camera while directing himself and, holy smokes, does he knock it out of the park with a vicious, visceral performance that fairly sets the screen ablaze. "
- Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"This screen adaptation...is vital because it has the potential to reach marginalized communities. But it also stands as an aching, lyrical, performance-driven masterpiece in its own right, a film so intense and engrossing that movie houses really should screen it with an intermission. "
- April Wolfe, Village Voice
"Washington delivers not only one of the year’s best performances, but one of the best self-directed performances in cinema history. "
- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
