Critic Reviews for Atlantics
The film is as aesthetically beautiful as it is a visionary social commentary.
I really enjoyed trying to puzzle through this and I was very impressed by the tonal balance that Mati Diop pulls off here.
This is a really cool like ghost story and love story and [a] social piece and all rolled into one in a very assured and fascinating movie.
[It] deftly melds fantasy and romance in a complex portrait of migration.
Atlantics is not merely social realism. It is far richer, and far stranger, than that.
[Atlantics] can occasionally feel stretched and thin in certain spots, like a cracking medium-length film padded out to feature runtime. Still, that's no matter, because the film's real coup is the victory it scores for greater perspective.
