4/5 87% Madeline's Madeline (2018) Helena Howard is the real deal, and so is Madeline. That this is her first performance is nothing short of revolutionary. - MUBI EDIT

No Score Yet Minotaur (Minotauro) (2015) Although there's a lot to be admired here, like the stunning imagery, [Nicolás] Pereda's feature feels too wayward to leave any distinct imprint. - Seventh Row EDIT
