Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Profoundly difficult to stomach."
‑ Laremy Legel, Film.com
"Moebius is sordid, yet-need I say it?-never dull."
‑ Jon Frosch, The Atlantic
"Whatever your tolerance for crazy Korean castration comedy, Moebius is an impressive formal achievement."
‑ Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
"Ultimately, if taken seriously, this is a cautionary tale about crimes coming back to haunt and punish the ones that committed them."
‑ Dan Fainaru, Screen International
"What undermines Moebius is how Kim has let high concepts and philosophical subtexts run amok without anchoring them to a substantial narrative."
‑ Clarence Tsui, Hollywood Reporter
"You may find an infectious artsiness in its decision to not have any spoken dialogue."
‑ Adam McCabe, Orlando Weekly
""Moebius" makes its freakish images so credible it demands the silent treatment, since its vulgar ingredients practically defy verbal limitations."
‑ Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
"Kim treats his bloody and provocative taboo breaking with a much lighter touch this time around, and the result, while still deeply flawed, is mostly a sly dark comedy that doubles as a very impressive display of wordless storytelling."
‑ Oliver Lyttelton, The Playlist
"Kim Ki-duk's latest is a gloriously off-the-charts study in perversity."
‑ Leslie Felperin, Variety
"Tears through taboos like the Kool-Aid Man through tissue paper, and sticks itself in your mind like a difficult thorn."
‑ Dan Schindel, Movie Mezzanine
"Kim's in complete tonal control, and it's quickly clear that he intends Moebius as a sick, over-the-top comedy of the sort generally produced in America by Troma."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, The Dissolve
"While it feels odd at first, the film's wordlessness fits its premise perfectly. There is a primal nastiness going on here that language would somehow dilute."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
