Critic Reviews of "Tabu: A Story of the South Seas"New York TimesJanuary 28, 2006
It is like a picture poem, with its sunshine and happiness in the beginning and its stormy drama in the end.Chicago ReaderJanuary 01, 2000
The exquisite tragic ending -- conceived musically and rhythmically as a gradually decelerating diminuendo -- is one of the pinnacles of silent cinema.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsMarch 19, 2013
Brilliantly simple lyrical film was shot on location in Tahiti.The NationJanuary 18, 2013
Tabu is deliberate and forced in its playfulness, cheaply melodramatic in its tragedy, and unconscionably long-winded.EmanuelLevy.ComAugust 20, 2012
A brilliant film that deservedly won the Best Cinematography Oscar.TV GuideAugust 29, 2006
Magnificent, filled with shimmering, luminescent images that evoke both paradise and paradise lost.Combustible CelluloidMarch 16, 2004
If D.W. Griffith created the language of film, he left it up to his successors to add their own personal esthetics. On the short list of the cinema's all time greatest artists belongs the name F.W. Murnau.PopMattersNovember 03, 2002
As with so many other great films, this one carries its own burden of real life sorrow.
