Chillingly fascinating.

January 13, 2021 | Full Review…

An earnest, muddled movie...

October 7, 2019 | Full Review…

It is hard to think just what sort of an audience a film of this quality, quite seriously made, I think-no tongue-in-cheek, lots of uplift -is aimed at.

July 17, 2018 | Full Review…

The film is well-directed and -written, although it could have been shortened by twenty minutes.
