at_any_priceReviews for this film from our members:

  • Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
    • Excerpt: At any price di Ramin Bahrani è un ritratto della provincia americana e dei segreti delle sue famiglie disfunzionali.
  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: In many ways, it actually is about the real America, where loyalty is to family above others and the pursuit of prosperity trumps that of happiness. It’s the point of view of At Any Price that those truths have consequences that are both good and bad.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …despite its worthy themes, Bahrani has over stacked his deck with Henry’s character while leaving too many questions with Dean’s just as Quaid emotes to the rafters while Efron underplays.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [I]t works because Bahrani and Newton stay true to the characters’ reactions to even something that might, upon initial impact, seem contrived.
  • Kate Erbland @ MSN Movies
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Stressed, struggling farmers explore the moral and social consequences of corruption and the high-stakes economic pressures in the contemporary business world.
  • Danny King @ The King Bulletin
    • Excerpt: [A] darker and more troubling film than ‘Spring Breakers’ and ‘Pain & Gain’ combined, its queasy combination of sincerity and self-criticism eventually revealing itself to be downright unshakable.
  • Jonathan Richards @
    • Excerpt: Dennis Quaid, in an inept, mugging performance, is Henry Whipple, a successful third generation Iowa farmer who works painfully hard at squeezing the charmin’ as he glad-hands customers and closes deals at funerals with strangers.
  • [New – 6/21] | Tom Santilli @
    • Excerpt: This is a watchable film, but surprisingly it will be watched in theaters, instead of on Lifetime where a movie of this nature was meant to exist.
  • Cole Smithey @
    • Excerpt: If you’re looking for a reliable protagonist, you won’t find one in “At Any Price.”
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: To unwieldy and melodramatic to remain credible and moving.
