Eye-popping photography should draw viewers to this thoughtful, revealing doc.
John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, 2014-01-01
Summer's blitz of apocalypse movies has nothing on this bee doc.
Cath Clarke, Time Out, 2013-09-04
Oblique narrative aside, you can't beat the film's eye-popping visuals.
Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, 2013-08-07
What's really frightening about Honey isn't what a hive of angry bees might do to us, but what we've done to them.
Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 2013-07-19
[Markus] Imhoof makes bees more important than they have previously seemed.
Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic, 2013-07-12
Imhoof's film is remarkable in its close-up photography. The bees loom large, like creatures from some mutant planet; dangle together in a delicate chain; and fill the air, floating like unusually vivid dust specks.
Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times, 2013-07-11
"More Than Honey" may be the most visually beautiful documentary ever made.
Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2013-07-11
Markus Imhoof's inventive and powerful documentary ...
Peter Keough, Boston Globe, 2013-07-04
Most striking in "Honey" are closeups of the bees in their hives, symbiotically working together in creating their new queen: Imhoof rightfully spends time detailing the extraordinary nature of bee social structure.
Jay Weissberg, Variety, 2013-06-18
Without any preachiness, this magically beautiful film urges us to take better care of the bees, and honor the irreplaceable things that they do for us.
Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post, 2013-06-14
An amiably shaggy combination of science lesson, whimsical musing and alarm bell ...
Mark Jenkins, NPR, 2013-06-13
As a nature doc, More Than Honey rivals such acclaimed forebears as Winged Migration and Microcosmos, though it's working with a more limited scope, visually-if you've seen one honeybee, you've seen 'em all.
Mike D'Angelo, AV Club, 2013-06-12
A fascinating but rambling documentary about the decimation of the world's bee population through the phenomenon known as colony collapse disorder.
Stephen Holden, New York Times, 2013-06-11
Although the unexplained collapse of honeybee colonies is a global problem, the most startling moments in Markus Imhoof's documentary take place on a microscopic level.
Sam Adams, Time Out New York, 2013-06-11
It's a delightful, informative, and suitably contemplative study of the bee world and the bee-population crisis, though in the end it does offer enough dewdrops of hope to fill up a bluebell or two.
