Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Around this spare story...director Warwick Thornton constructs a searing indictment of frontier racism as remarkable for its sonic restraint as its visual expansiveness. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Apr 5, 2018

Fresh: Spare, deliberately paced, and almost Biblical in its search for moral justice in a harsh and lawless landscape. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Apr 7, 2018

Fresh: A bleak story presented with great style, it's a finely made Australian western that demonstrates the malleability of that most American of genres as well as the impressive gifts of Indigenous filmmaker Warwick Thornton. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Apr 5, 2018

Fresh: [Warwick] Thornton delicately peels back all the layers of Aussie injustice in this film, but what's most unnerving is that the story proves to be so universal. – April Wolfe, Village Voice, Apr 4, 2018
