The A.V. Club - Unnamed
A lyrical character study inside a quasi-Western thriller, God’s Country features a never-better Thandiwe Newton embodying that ethical struggle to haunting, unsettling effect.

IndieWire - Unnamed
Julian Higgins’ excellent film constantly dangles redemption in front of our faces, begging us to imagine a better world, but ultimately delivers a stark reminder of how bitterly divided the country is.

The Hollywood Reporter - Lovia Gyarkye
Although astute viewers may easily predict God’s Country’s final moments, the journey there is still a wild and satisfying one.

TheWrap - Ronda Racha Penrice
Much about God’s Country is provocative, raising critical questions about boundaries, environmental stewardship, community, inclusion, grief and more. It is, however, a slow burn, requiring patience and attention.

Variety - Dennis Harvey
Julian Higgins’ first feature can be taken as a drama with thriller elements or a low-key thriller with atypical dramatic nuance, working either way as a quietly effective balance between genre, social issue and character study elements.
