"A major rediscovery... [Powell] makes it both superb melodrama and superb ethnography, as well as one of the most beautiful black-and-white British films of the 1930s... Few films in 1937 had the visual impact of THE EDGE OF THE WORLD. And, despite all our digital technology, few films do today." Chicago Tribune.
