Critic Reviews of "Eve's Bayou"Lisa AlspectorMarch 19, 2008
Subplots are woven stealthily into the story, taking the pressure off the central drama, allowing it to be affecting rather than melodramatic, and heightening the atmosphere of the lush Louisiana setting.Andrew Sarris New York ObserverApril 27, 2007
A sparkling directorial debut.Emanuel Levy VarietyJune 24, 2006
An intensely emotional drama that mixes elements of Southern Gothic with the kinds of characters and tensions that prevail in the plays of Southern writers like Tennessee Williams.Mick LaSalle San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
A gothic and, for better or worse, poetic memoir about a young girl and her family of Creole aristocrats.Rick Groen Globe and MailApril 12, 2002
In Eve's Bayou, Tennessee goes to Louisiana, and finds a familiar home. Tennessee Williams, that is.Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.comMarch 08, 2009
More than anything, about the nature of memory and how it rarely matches the truth of life.Ken Fox TV GuideMarch 19, 2008
Lemmons' focus on strong female characters, and her willingness to ignore accepted notions of "black filmmaking" are powerful assets, but one can't help wishing the film as a whole lived up to its initial promise.Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible CelluloidMay 26, 2006
It feels like I've seen dozens of films this year by first time writers and directors, and not one has stuck to me until now.Robin Clifford Reeling ReviewsApril 09, 2005
A solid, if somewhat heavy-handed, Southern Gothic tale, steeped in mysticism.Luke Y. Thompson New TimesSeptember 16, 2004
Pretentious as all hell, sorry.
