Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The dizzying narrative pings hither and thither, with first-time director Gout confidently deploying different screen ratios and film stocks to remind the audience where they are in the timeline."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"So confusing (especially if you're a football dolt) that you may have trouble identifying the different narrative strands. It's still gripping."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"Full of colour, carnage and dramatic overkill, the film drills through your brain, destroying neurons as it goes. It's like being your own guest at an aesthetic torture gig."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"Starts with a bracingly stylised snarl and ends in a muddle."
‑ Kevin Harley, Total Film
"This is genre filmmaking taken to its pulpiest extreme, an example of style over substance to be sure, but what style."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"This is all very impressive in its scope and moral reach, and the movie, with its extensive use of handheld cameras, sweaty close-ups and violent encounters, is visually striking."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"There are characters who help to connect the stories and provide a straight line through a very twisted narrative. In its best moments this is an exciting, involving multi-story thriller."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"So we think Mexico is an extremely violent place, but are a bit confused to be frank."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"Everardo Valerio Gout directs as though he may never get another chance, throwing just about everything he can at his first feature - and quite a lot of what he throws is impressive, even if he sometimes tries just a little too hard."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"It may feel more like pulp than art house, but it still maintains its grip, bound together by a score composed by Nick Cave, among others."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"It's a confident, well-made film that ends up in a blind alley of cynicism."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"The pacing drags in the early stages, the characters are thinly sketched and the impact of the dialogue has been diluted by a shoddy subtitling job."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Gout, a prolific short filmmaker here making his feature-length debut, shows a flair for directing actors and for creating atmospheric visual sequences, often composed of single, beautifully-soundtracked tracking shots."
‑ Hannah McGill, The List
