Critic Reviews for Marionette (Repression)

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

It runs a little overlong and rushes through important character beats, but Strien does succeed in creating a high concept thriller that doesn't quite go where you'd expect.

October 25, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A third-act plot twist is audacious enough to regain our attention, but Reuten and Wolf don't quite have the charisma necessary to fully carry it off.

September 24, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A refreshing addition to the "creepy kid" sub-genre. Atmospheric with high tension, the movie is not just content with jump scares and shadowy figures.

January 20, 2022 | Full Review…

A late movie twist subverts some of what came before, but before it disappears down its philosophical rabbit hole, Marionette is an enjoyable Hitchcockian story.

January 20, 2022 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

An ungainly psychological thriller about a widowed shrink and creepy child patient doesn't live up to its intellectual pretensions.

January 19, 2022 | Full Review…

A rare film that defies us to guess exactly where it's going, while playing fairly with laying out its clues.
