3/29/2017 by Rex ReedBeautiful and challenging, Bokeh has a pristine look and chilling feel of its own that contributes enormously to the mood and tone of the whole film.
3/24/2017 by Nick AllenOnly worthwhile storytellers could take an elevator pitch like this one (the last two people on Earth) and produce long-lasting curiosity about its inherent beauty and horror.
3/24/2017 by Dennis HarveyWe're stuck for eternity with two perfectly decent people who, it seems, just aren't very interesting company. Not even for each other.

3/23/2017 by Katie WalshWhat sets "Bokeh" apart among the "low-key apocalypse" cinematic subgenre is not what happens, but what doesn't happen. It's the unknowing that is their undoing. The result is a subtle but ultimately profound humanist message.

3/23/2017 by Sheri LindenAs the story gives way to repetitious sightseeing sequences and melodrama, it proves less than fully satisfying. But there's plenty to admire along the way ...

10/16/2018 by Derek DeskinsThis issue of character development is largely what holds the film back. Without understanding what makes this couple tick, we are left voyeurs in a world that we cannot understand.

4/6/2017 by Rob HunterAs devastatingly beautiful as it is beautifully devastating.
3/30/2017 by MaryAnn JohansonA pretty blur of an apocalypse happens to pretty, blurry people in this dull SF drama. This end of the world brought to you by the Reykjavik Tourist Board.

3/26/2017 by Mark R. LeeperThis is a film for the patient and that patience goes largely unrewarded.
Eye for Film
3/24/2017 by Jennie KermodeIt's not really the subject that's important, but how we interpret what's going on in the background.
3/24/2017 by Todd Jorgenson... never generates much narrative momentum or profound social commentary, although it takes full advantage of the gorgeous Icelandic locations.
Film Journal International
3/24/2017 by Edward DouglasA contemplative Malick-like drama that leans heavily on its Iceland locations and the genuine chemistry between its two young actors.
3/23/2017 by Lee AshworthBokeh's depth of field itself is ultimately too shallow, the focus not quite tight enough.
3/23/2017 by Mike McGranaghanThe half-baked philosophizing and predictable outcome make the picture an endurance test for your patience.
3/23/2017 by Tasha RobinsonSmall-budget indie films often have to limit their scope and their sights, but Bokeh takes in enough of the protagonists' deserted, lonely world to feel completely convincing.
3/23/2017 by Brian OrndorfStrives to be meditative, examining art, life, and the pain of living, but it never achieve its full dramatic wingspan, wasting its potential on actors incapable of keeping their characters compelling.
The Film Stage
3/22/2017 by Mike MazzantiLike its titular aesthetic definition, Bokeh remains completely out of focus both narratively and thematically.
3/21/2017 by Roger MooreGeneric last-couple-on-Earth sci-fi that's too empty to offer anything deep or fun.
