Reviews

Film Threat - Alex Saveliev
Gripping and mercifully short, it doesn’t quite achieve the status of cinematic gold. Perhaps it’s for the best, or Hayes may have fallen prey to his ambitions.
67
The A.V. Club - Unnamed
Tension does build and there is a satisfying conclusion, but there is a significant stretch where, undeniably, a sizable amount of air comes out of the balloon.
67
IndieWire - Susannah Gruder
While a nihilistic vision of the future — of climate disaster, war, disease, or some combination of the three — is certainly relatable, Gold ends up being rather empty itself, void of any real message aside from the lyrics to the Nick Cave song that play as the credits roll: “People Ain’t No Good.”
67
Austin Chronicle - Unnamed
If you’re ready for 90-odd minutes of relentless desert scenes with Efron struggling to survive, then this movie is for you.
60
The Guardian - Luke Buckmaster
Gold is a minimalistic production, story and setting wise, with an interesting kind of contextual ambiguity: we know there is a wider world beyond the frame, though we don’t know what it looks like. Sparseness is intriguing, but this film is so damn sparse.
