A very smart and true movie.

Movie Reviews

“A highly controlled piece of filmmaking with an unerring command of tone (…) Isaac is such a remarkably compelling force” David Rooney: The Hollywood Reporter

“There are moments in this deliberately paced drama when there simply isn’t enough going on to sustain interest (…) However, very near the end (…) the drama rises to a new, exalted level” Todd McCarthy: Deadline 

“It’s truly a wild, blazing ride if you get on the movie’s bruising, mesmeric wavelength, a tragic but deeply moral film” Rodrigo Perez: The Playlist
