5 Stars! “inherently and utterly bizarre, yet wildly compelling, a fascinating glimpse of a world many of us have never experienced…As for the performances, they are outstanding…It is smart and funny and unrelentingly weird, a sharp and surreal journey. Much like its inspiration, Zola is unequivocally one of a kind.” (The Maine Edge)
4/4 Stars! “Zola is the perfect summer film; it’s a freewheeling joyride through the seamy side of stripping that balances the thrill of voyeurism with the dangerous reality that beautiful women who entertain face with a wink and a smile.” (Chicago Reader)
4/4 Stars! “Zola is the best thing I’ve seen in 2021, so far. Every bit of this film is a force of nature and it truly needs to be seen in order to be believed. Moreover, it should just be seen in order to be appreciated. A24 has another instant indie classic with this one…It’s utterly timely, modern, and a scathing satire of how we interact with the world. Don’t miss it!” (Awards Radar)
