Reviews:
"A] well carpentered piece of work marked by some fine performances and resilient thematic fiber." - 05/26/2012 Hollywood Reporter


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "McConaughey, on a career roll, is magnificent. his deeply felt scenes with the standout Sheridan hit you like a shot in the heart." - 04/25/2013 Rolling Stone


"Nichols has a sense of place that feels authentic....If you allow yourself to settle into its leisurely pace, it will reward you." -- Grade: B+ - 05/03/2013 Entertainment Weekly


3 stars out of 5 -- "With a lack of sentimentality, the appealingly naturalistic performances of the two boys and a slow-burn build-up to an explosive finale, it's a charming, redolent and unexpected pastoral that both intrigues and moves." - 06/01/2013 Total Film


"[A] newly minted American classic....Mr. Nichols, an Arkansan born and bred, has made a film of striking originality." - 04/25/2013 Wall Street Journal


"There is an ease with which Nichols pokes around in people's lives, unearthing small truths in authentic ways. In MUD, it feels as if he's caught a small slice of backcountry soul like a firefly in a jar." - 04/25/2013 Los Angeles Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "A beautifully shot, deliberately paced adventure saga, it explores romantic love from the perspective of an idealistic adolescent." - 04/25/2013 USA Today


3 stars out of 4 -- "Nichols' eye for particulars, his feel for the characters and landscapes (and waterscapes), is so vivid you feel you could get bit by a mosquito or a water moccasin if you're not careful."  - 04/25/2013 Chicago Sun-Times


4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hat truly elevates MUD is the sense there’s something so much bigger going on here....A bold, intelligent, 21st century take on Mark Twain..." - 05/03/2013 Empire


"Mr. McConaughey commands attention with a variation on a certain kind of Southern character: handsome but battered, charming but also sinister, his self-confidence masking a history of bad luck and trouble." - 04/26/2013 New York Times


"First and foremost, it’s another splendid showcase for the ongoing McConaughey Renaissance: He plays Mud as if Tom Sawyer had grown up and gone horrifically wrong, effortlessly projecting rascally charm with a hint of underlying menace." - 04/25/2013 A.V. Club


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "McConaughey injects a note of danger into a bayou noir story of youthful ad­ven­ture that manages to be lyrical and sobering at the same time." - 04/26/2013 Washington Post
