Movie Reviews

The Guardian - 10/10 by Peter BradshawHard to Be a God creates its own uncanny world: it is beautiful, brilliant and bizarre.
The Telegraph - 10/10 by Robbie CollinThough it delves into the worst extremes of human ugliness, German’s film is exhilarating, moving, funny, beautiful and unshakeable – a danse macabre that whirls you round and round until the bitter end.
The New Yorker - 10/10 by Richard BrodyThe late director Aleksei Guerman’s last film is a grandly arbitrary carnival of neo-medieval depravity. It’s also a mudpunk allegory of Russian barbarism and backwardness.
RogerEbert.com - 10/10 by Glenn KennyA fantastical examination of man’s inhumanity to man, and as replete as it is with persistent visceral disgust, it also pulses with intelligence, a mordant compassion, and yes, incredible wit.
Slant Magazine - 10/10 by Christopher GrayAleksei German's final film is choreographed with a Felliniesque social grandeur, but tethered to a neorealist's eye for detail and quotidian matters of social justice.
Boston Globe - 9/10 by Peter KeoughThe vividly realized squalor, cruelty, and ugliness engulf everything, including the narrative.
Village Voice - 9/10 by Michael AtkinsonTextually, the setting's brutalist conflation between the far future and the distant past makes the film timeless, an elusive fable told with the viscous immediacy of a life on the diseased edge of civilization.
The New York Times - 9/10 by Nicolas RapoldMr. German was just as stubborn in sticking to his personal vision (and revisions) as he was innovative in his storytelling, and he’s left behind a final opus that is hard to shake.
The A.V. Club - 9/10 by Ignatiy VishnevetskyIt is grotesque and deranged and Hieronymus Bosch-like, and damn if it isn’t a bona fide vision — but of what, exactly?
Time Out London - 8/10 by Trevor JohnstonHard to Be a God is an endurance test for its protagonist and audience, yet the reward is an unforgettable cinematic experience and a timely insight into the need to remain human in a world of carnage.
