What the Critics say
David Engelbrecht Spanning loop hoog terwyl pa kind soek.
Gabi Zietsman If any filmmaker with a tight budget wants to dabble in this digital style of storytelling, Searching would be the best film to use as a case study and how to interweave the digital sphere with the plot.
Jim Judy Overall, I liked the pic quite a bit, yet hope it doesn’t end up as one of the first of many of what could be a heavily copied and imitated cinematic storytelling form.
Tomatometer Searching’s timely premise and original execution are further bolstered by well-rounded characters brought to life by a talented cast.
