Grade A! “There’s a Twilight Zone-like surrealism…by attenuating its pace and allowing us to fully immerse in its world the result is a work all the more powerful and affecting. ” (Slash Film)
5 Stars! “Carpenter-esque sci-fi western hybrid Bacurau is a stunning and furious piece of social commentary” (Sci Fi Now)
“delightful mishmash of genres and ideas that works way better than it should. There are elements of a Tarantino-like Western, science fiction and a more traditional drama/thriller. Bacurau defies labels and expectations, and works because of it.” (Film Inquiry)
