REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..like any good Western, Slow West percolates with the constant threat of violence, but debuting feature director John Maclean wrings the genre for its mythic value..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
“..has a distinctly Coen-esque flavor in its mix of sly intelligence, bleak humor and unsettling violence, exuding fierce confidence even when these qualities don't always cohere..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..using familiar signposts to tell a simple, compelling, terrific story..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
