Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Come for the abidingly mysterious plot, stay for Hagan's bewitching performance. – Simon Abrams,, Aug 5, 2016

Fresh: The film doesn't always work as a genre exercise, but it's a winner as a character study, in large part because of how committed Hagan is to playing Janie's derangement. Casting directors in search of the offbeat should take note. – Noel Murray, AV Club, Aug 3, 2016

Fresh: Sun Choke is, in keeping with a protagonist who comes in more than one 'version', a disorienting, dissociative affair, reminiscent in parts of Yorgos Lanthimos' Dogtooth (2009) - and all beautiful, tense, hallucinatory and deeply disturbing. – Anton Bitel, Sight and Sound, Aug 26, 2015

Intense. Disturbing.

It is a fantastic film. Character development was brilliant. Shot beautifully; lighting,composition etc.. It tells a complex story of a fractured mind, with the viewer piecing it all together. There is an effortless brutality to this film that won't soon leave you after it ends. Unlike anything I've seen before.


This film is eerie and astonishing throughout with outstanding performances. The cinematography, editing and score lends a clear and precise tone throughout. Sarah Hagen gives an outstanding performance. I highly recommend!

Wish we had chosen another

Don't expose yourself to this. There's very little storytelling here. Lots of shock-value-oriented scenes and images. Torture scenes, graphic sex, and bloody, violent deaths. No payoff at the end in terms of an explanation or narrative conclusion. A sick film. I hated it.
