"Very funny and a bit sentimental, it's naturalistic comedy of the highest order, with Evets and Henshaw standouts among a terrific cast."
Total Film - 05/27/2009 4 stars out of 5 -- "Echoing earlier Loach films like RIFF-RAFF and RAINING STONES, LOOKING relegates politics to the subs' bench, letting humour and humanity lead the frontline."
Uncut - 06/05/2009 4 stars out of 5 -- "[Loach has] made one of his most entertaining, uplifting films....Evets' nervy energy is brilliant."

New York Times - 05/14/2010
"[T]here is plenty of grit and working-class stoicism, and also the hovering threat of violence and repressive state power."
Wall Street Journal - 05/19/2010
"Quick wit is one quality that makes the film special; another is a tenderness that grows out of the postman's grief..."
