Critic Reviews for Der Samurai

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

It's so evocative on an instinctive level that its panting excitement overwhelms the sense of questions unanswered, and often unasked.

June 8, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A surreal exploration into the mind of a man questioning his gender identity, Der Samurai has style to spare.

September 8, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Till Kleinert's feature directorial debut is surreal, gorgeous and complicated. Go in prepared to let it wash over you, then expect to have long, nuanced conversations afterwards.

It would be nearly impossible to not admire the world that Kleinert creates that exists somewhere between dream and fantasy.

September 5, 2020 | Rating: 3.0/4.0 | Full Review…

Der Samurai asks more questions than it answers, and is stronger for it.

September 26, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Der Samurai is an unusual little gem of a film that excites with its own offbeat blend of horror, suspense, and visual elegance.
