Movie Reviews

  • why tell this horror story from a child's perspective if you don't have the willingness to show a child's reaction? I suspect Ung's book fills in those gaps, but Jolie's film has little of the visual and dramatic immediacy the page can't capture
    by Emily Yoshida [Vulture ]
  • relentless and involving even when it stumbles. Jolie may not be a full-fledged auteur yet, but she unquestionably possesses a singular aesthetic that courses through her work and exists completely apart from her high-profile acting career
    Review rate : B+ by Eric Kohn [Indiewire ]
  • it's an artful, quietly affecting piece of filmmaking, more than worth the lessons learned
    Review rate : B+ by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • an engrossing, dynamically shot movie that moves with real fluidity and complexity
    by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times ]
  • an accomplished piece of work which is possessed of a genuine artistry
    4 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
