Agnes Reviews

December 12, 2021
A strange and beautiful tale of sex, religion, and dysfunction at the Carmelite convent of Santa Teresa.
December 10, 2021
A choppy, muddled mess of a movie that has its own identity crisis of what it wants to be or to show.
December 10, 2021
For all of its ruffled habits and bleeding eyes, Agnes is far sadder than it is scary (quite, versus not at all), and often sillier than it is sad.

Reece shows an intuitive understanding of when to move the camera, and -- more importantly -- when not to move the camera. It's all very elegantly put together.

Constantly surprises and entertains throughout.

This choppy film has little to say, particularly about cloistered women, despite being named after a possessed sister and dedicating a plotline to an ex-nun.
December 8, 2021
Sometimes this movie is unsettling; sometimes it's funny. Mostly it's a strange and fascinating inquiry into the nature of belief...
December 8, 2021
[Its] two sharply differentiated parts add up to much less than a coherent whole, in addition to being too underdeveloped and tonally wobbly to satisfy in themselves.
December 5, 2021
The film is a thoughtful examination of the human desire for it and the accompanying hope that it may exorcise the emptiness we feel.

If... you're tired of seeing the same old beats hit again and again in these kind of movies, this will feel provides idiosyncratic salvation.
August 6, 2021
Yet another example of the wholly unique splendour of the films of Mickey Reece, Agnes shrewdly balances sincerity with the filmmaker's signature style of camp once again to extraordinary effect.
