Critic Reviews of "I Am Belfast"Time OutApril 04, 2016
A boldly messy and impressionistic film.Film Ireland MagazineJanuary 03, 2017
At a time when filmmakers have been hesitant to engage with the difficult legacies of Belfast's past, Cousins provides a timely intervention while pointing to a future where all the city's inhabitants could take pride in the spaces... they inhabit.Observer (UK)April 10, 2016
Cousins offers perhaps his most eccentric docu-essay yet, an impressionistic portrait of his home town, with Helena Bereen playing a regal personification of the spirit of place.Independent (UK)April 08, 2016
Cousins doesn't ignore the bloodshed and sectarian violence (the pub bombings, the killings, the evictions) in the city's recent past but he also has a genius for finding the poetry and humour in everyday street scenes.The Big IssueApril 08, 2016
This is an admiring portrait of the city but it's also tinged with sadness.Irish TimesApril 08, 2016
The city would not be itself without its humorous fatalism. We're all going to die. All films on Belfast end with Van Morrison.Radio TimesApril 08, 2016
While it evokes memories of a British Transport short, director Mark Cousins still crafts a perceptive paean to his hometown ...Little White LiesApril 08, 2016
A complex and heartfelt evocation of a divided city.Times (UK)April 07, 2016
A visual meandering through the scarred city which unearths painful history -- and poetry.GuardianApril 07, 2016
A valuable piece of work.CineVueApril 07, 2016
A refreshingly hopeful depiction of a place habitually represented in cinema as a battleground of sectarian violence.
