Movie Reviews

  • throughout "Benedetta", Paul Verhoeven builds up a heady, campy mix of religious imagery, corporeal abjectness, and masochism; it's ultimately uneven and dangerously provocative, but it's also a lot of fun
    3 of 4 by Pat Brown [Slant Magazine ]
  • the film, is wild, intelligent, pulsating, provocative and vibrantly alive; Paul Verhoeven once again pushes all the buttons that will titillate, provoke, excite, offend and mix impudent and outrageous conceits with serious smarts
    by Todd McCarthy [Deadline ]
  • the details are wild, but the presentation as a cleanly designed, glossy French language prestige story is stately in a fairly uninteresting way
    3 of 5 by Dave Calhoun [Time Out New York ]
  • the beauty of "Benedetta" is that it never provides a straightforward answer to all of our questions, leaving it up to us to decide if we believe or not
    by Jordan Mintzer [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Paul Verhoeven, as always, is more interested in playing games and is always at his best when needling an audience's ideas of good taste
    Review rate : B+ by Rory O'Connor [The Film Stage ]
  • Paul Verhoeven's transgressive but frustratingly self-conflicted period piece; By the time “Benedetta” fades to a close, Verhoeven's gleefully impertinent tale of pleasure and pain has grown numb to God's touch
    Review rate : C+ by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • Paul Verhoeven has given us a bizarre nunsploitation drama; Verhoeven just presents us with the raunchiness, using the religiosity as set dressing
    2 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • "Benedetta", the latest from legendary Dutch director Paul Verhoeven, really is an epic sass-fest in which obscenely attractive nuns play power games against each other for God's approval
    5 of 5 by Adam Solomons [HeyUGuys ]
  • "Benedetta" is entertaining; even if it's messy and at times extremely violent. But it simply wouldn't be as good as it is without the incredible performances from Efira, Patakia, and of course, Charlotte Rampling, who always awes whilst on screen
    4 of 5 by Alysha Prasad [One Room with a View ]
  • "Benedetta" is a substantial, sophisticated, yet briskly paced and always highly entertaining drama, which balances quiet scenes of shrewd backroom politicking with lurid scenes of wild religious madness
    5 of 5 by Nicholas Barber [BBC ]
