Fresh: A direct expression from the soul onto celluloid, unvarnished and uncompromised, and Schrader's best film in years. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, May 23, 2018

Fresh: Is ambition is encouraging, and its dark musings are certainly provocative. – Tom Russo, Boston Globe, May 25, 2018

a world void of pain & suffering and a place where not a single one of God’s children are forsaken; a hopeful spot in this universe where despair has no meaning or place in it and we all live blissfully. Now attempt to imagine and realize the antithesis of that world, the tangible place we all live in and that according to science is destitute. Watching First Reformed gives many followers the realization that even men of faith can also live lives without hope and that they do so by living such lives fueled by their passions for despair. The ending, the end?...
