Critics reviews

Even when Salazar’s expressionistic compositions feel mechanically precise (an effect compounded by the shutter-clicks that mark scene transitions), his twist on the maternal melodrama remains beguilingly unpredictable—all the way through to an ending that reinterprets motherly sacrifice with perverse literalness.
