Movie Reviews

  • there's a thrumming, raw-boned intensity to Ahmed's Malik and an appealing unforced naturalism in the boys, who register as smart, intuitive kids without any of that strangely performative child-actor shine
    Review rate : B- by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • Riz Ahmed is mesmerising in a twisty sci-fi with gripping psychological undercurrents; Michael Pearce shows both a visual and thematic appreciation for genre films in all sorts of endearing and enigmatic ways
    4 of 5 by Hanna Flint [Time Out New York ]
  • richer, smarter and stranger than it first looks; Riz Ahmed, offering up yet another a immaculate, immensely moving performance; It's a surprisingly meaty work that works on several levels at once
    by Leslie Felperin [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • in spite of the film's troublingly naive take on mental trauma, Riz Ahmed vividly and empathetically captures a man's wounded soul
    2 of 4 by Chris Barsanti [Slant Magazine ]
  • a wildly imaginative and engaging character-driven work through a genre-bending filter; It's a gorgeous and heartfelt family drama, but it's also a suspenseful and sometimes shocking paranoid thriller
    3.5 of 5 by Meagan Navarro [Bloody Disgusting ]
  • a taut, genre-bending psychological thriller; A familial psychodrama with well-crafted sci-fi elements and a pair of impressive child actors, Michael Pearce's intense second feature is both surprising and emotional
    by Tomris Laffly [Variety ]
  • a strong central performance isn't enough to sell a disappointingly plotted follow-up to British director Michael Pearce's thrilling breakout "Beast"
    2 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • "Encounter" is an intriguing, intense thriller led by Riz Ahmed; Directed by Michael Pearce, "Encounter" weaves a mysterious tale that is filled with intensity, high stakes, incredibly deep and nuanced performances, and changing perspectives
    3 of 5 by Mae Abdulbaki [ScreenRant ]
