This potent Norwegian drama by Erik Poppe, himself a veteran war photographer, opens with a gripping sequence.

J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 2014-11-06

 

The whole cast is good, but as always, all roads lead to Binoche, who is wonderful.

G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle, 2014-10-30

 

Poppe can't match the stunning opener of Binoche photographing a suicide bomber in Kabul with scenes of domesticity. But Binoche never falters. She's the film's fire and grieving heart.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 2014-10-24

 

Poppe crafts some powerful scenes that pose questions not easily answered.

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, 2014-10-23

 

What makes "1,000 Times Good Night" more than a dramatic essay on wartime journalism is Ms. Binoche's wrenchingly honest portrayal ...

Stephen Holden, New York Times, 2014-10-23

 

"1,000 Times Good Night" has moments of both startling violence and breathtaking beauty.

Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 2014-10-23

 

Moving from sophisticated character close-ups, to dreamlike fantasy, to exciting coverage of the photographer's shattering battle experience, the movie is austerely elegant.

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2014-10-23

 

"1,000 Times Good Night" takes its time, letting the pathos fully soak in. Those who are regulars at film festivals will find the pacing - and the emotional note it ends on - very familiar.

Penny Walker, Arizona Republic, 2014-10-23

 

An affecting drama made more poignant by honest-feeling autobiographical elements, Erik Poppe's A Thousand Times Goodnight examines the choice between family and career when that career represents work of real social importance.

John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, 2014-10-20

 

Deftly sidestepping both melodrama and family-values messaging, Poppe imbues the film with enormous emotional resonance, brilliantly grounded by his leading lady.

Ronnie Scheib, Variety, 2014-10-20

 

It's as handsomely shot as any film about an ace shutterbug ought to be, and Juliette Binoche infuses familiar internal crises with palpable pain and urgency.

Guy Lodge, Time Out, 2014-04-29

 

Sadly, this gorgeous-looking adult movie plays out the same theme over and over, never going anywhere surprising.

Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, 2014-10-23

 

A disappointingly standard-issue addiction melodrama, this one the tearful case study of an adrenaline junkie whose compulsion threatens to push her family and loved ones away.

Vadim Rizov, AV Club, 2014-10-23

 

A self-important art-house film by an ex- war photographer who lacks distance from his subject.

Kyle Smith, New York Post, 2014-10-22

 

Poppe's closeness to the material ensures a level of passion, but he still fails to create a truly specific dynamic for Rebecca and Marcus's family ...

Danny King, Village Voice, 2014-10-21
