Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie impresses, maintaining a sense of anxiety through tight shots and a sound design that favors overlapping voices and constant clatter."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
"Nathan Silver's raucous, disturbing new film is a shrewdly conceived yet emotionally unhinged blend of uproarious situations and devastating outcomes."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
""Soft in the Head'' is drab, ramshackle stuff - up in everyone's face, and finding very little there."
‑ Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post

‑ Ela Bittencourt, Slant Magazine
"Surprising, challenging, and never less than thrilling."
‑ Calum Marsh, Village Voice
"A concise and blistering indie that captures a sense of volatile madness via sharp handheld aesthetics and a commanding lead performance from Sheila Etxeberria."
‑ Nick Schager, Film Journal International
