Where to Watch ‘The Whale’
At times, it feels like you’re watching a stage play, but Fraser’s performance is one for the ages.Randy Myers: San Jose Mercury News
“The Whale” is laughably earnest, larded with melodrama, and designed to shut down the long-standing association of human bulk with high spirits.Anthony Lane: New Yorker
As a story, The Whale is compelling. As a film, The Whale is a tad shakier.Alissa Wilkinson: Vox
Aronofsky, artisan of lost souls, finds compassion in the oddest of situations.Peter Howell: Toronto Star
