Critic Reviews of "Z For Zachariah"
New York Magazine/VultureAugust 28, 2015
Although the movie stops at the book's two-thirds mark, the abrupt ending is a killer. It creeped me out and then laid me out. For days I couldn't get out of my head the way it wreaked havoc on my sympathies.
SlateAugust 28, 2015
Zobel and Modi have crafted a thoughtful narrative about the experience of navigating and attempting to accommodate others' personalities.
RogerEbert.comAugust 28, 2015
"Z for Zachariah" is ultimately too dramatically slight and brief for its ambitions, despite its sometimes labored myth-making script and visuals.
Globe and MailAugust 28, 2015
The drama brims with religious allusion and questions of how faith manifests in a world without hope.
Los Angeles TimesAugust 27, 2015
An intriguing set-up yields a disappointingly ponderous payoff in Craig Zobel's post-apocalyptic drama, "Z for Zachariah."
Nashville SceneAugust 04, 2016
The deviations from O'Brien's plot don't always work, but the characters do come across as real people, in a believably fallen world, following a carefully planned-out path and trying to avoid a fatal misstep.
Seanax.comJuly 29, 2016
It's well acted and beautifully shot and the storytelling restraint of director Craig Zobel allows us to fill in the gaps with our own observations and interpretations of the tensions.

The film is far from what could've been, but the things it does right are enough to get you interested. [Full review in Spanish]
Epoch TimesJune 11, 2016
Margot Robbie's the only reason to see this film. She's an Australian Emma Stone, with a wide comedic/dramatic range, and charisma for days. She's going to be around a while.
FlavorwireMay 27, 2016
'Z for Zachariah' is a film of ideas, but those ideas never overpower the people it's about.
Movie MezzanineApril 13, 2016
People are people, says Z. They will repeat their mistakes. But it is possible that those mistakes will make way for a new world, a lot like the old one. And maybe love will let them muddle through.
