WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

New York Post by

The more serious Potter gets (there are several earnest soliloquies about dirt), the harder it is not to laugh.

The New York Times by Dana Stevens

Yes is not just a movie, in other words, it's a poem. A bad poem. There is no denying Ms. Potter's skill at versifying - or for that matter, at composing clear, striking visual images - but her intricate, measured lines amount to doggerel, not art.

TV Guide Magazine by Ken Fox

Like its title, the film is ultimately an affirmation in the face of catastrophic negation, a bit obvious at times but nonetheless welcome.

Los Angeles Times by Kevin Thomas

Bold, vibrant and impassioned, Yes is the work of a high-risk film artist in command of her medium and gifted in propelling her actors to soaring performances.

Variety by Scott Foundas

The A.V. Club by Tasha Robinson

Like Potter's "Orlando" and "The Tango Lesson," Yes showcases a craft and a hushed, vibrant intensity that prove compelling even when the story loses its focus.
