Reviews for ‘Thelma’

thelma-poster-1“Trier torques the narrative tension masterfully, offering glimpses of the natural world (a snake slithering through grass, fish frozen in a winter pond) that are as unsettling as his flashes of action are electric. Thelma doesn’t play with pig’s blood and jump scares; its dreamlike dread is subtler and stranger, and much harder to shake. A-“ – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

“An expertly effective genre exercise that only occasionally feels like an exercise. A lot of the time it feels like an exorcism.” – Sean M. Burns, The ARTery

“Thelma’s story sticks to your bones like a shiver, and sinks deeper for days after the credits have rolled.” – David Ehrlich, Indiewire

“As a hushed, haunting portrait of a young woman reconciling daughterly duty and her own incipient power, “Thelma” feels like a stylish, timely allegory for the present moment.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
