Movie Reviews

The New York Times - 10/10 by A.O. Scott The film makes uncompromising demands on your attention and your empathy. But it is also illuminating and, in its downbeat, deliberate way, exhilarating.
The Hollywood Reporter - 10/10 by Clarence Tsui The Woman Who Left is an immensely immersive and engaging tale about a wronged individual's grueling struggle between reconciliation and revenge.
TheWrap - 9/10 by Dave White Diaz has made an epic-length small film about the powerless, one full of moral urgency that he chooses to elongate and slow down to a crawl. It’s a quiet consideration of grief and mercy, of control taken and freely given up.
The A.V. Club - 8/10 by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky The film boasts one of Diaz’s most dramatically conventional, involving, and satisfying narratives.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Chris Nashawaty The Woman Who Left may not be a movie for everyone, but if you allow yourself to settle into its leisurely tempo and marinate in its heroine’s journey, it can be a richly rewarding experience. - 8/10 by Scout Tafoya The Woman Who Left isn't as exhausting as other recent works by Diaz, like “Century of Birthing” or “Norte, The End of History,” and its grace notes are more sublime.
Variety - 8/10 by Guy Lodge This occasionally transcendent opus finds Diaz’s formal powers — not least his own incisive monochrome lensing — at full strength.
Screen International - 8/10 by Jonathan Romney At once over-repetitive and less surprisingly digressive than some of his other films, The Woman Who Left may not represent Diaz at his absolute peak, but it’s a powerful, thoughtful melodrama that pulls you into its world and delivers a number of irresistible emotional coups.
CineVue - 8/10 by Ben Nicholson Its specific frame of reference sees it build to a bleak and powerful conclusion, if one devoid of much hope.
The Guardian - 8/10 by Peter Bradshaw It’s a film you have to feel your way into, like a ruined church or a haunted house.
The Film Stage - 8/10 by Ethan Vestby Highlighted by the black-and-white, The Woman Who Left is as nocturnal as the best noir, one of those films in which every transition from nighttime to daytime registers as a shock.
Paste Magazine - 8/10 by Kenji Fujishima The characters here are so vividly drawn and performed, and the contemplative mood so remarkably sustained, that the film casts a genuinely suspenseful and mesmerizing spell over the span of its nearly four hours. Don’t be daunted by its length: at its best, Diaz’s film has the richness of a great, wide-ranging, deeply immersive novel.
