Critic Reviews for Applause

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (25) | Rotten (3)

  • Applause offers no softening euphemisms -- but plenty of sharp humor -- in its depiction of a gifted artist struggling to reform herself as she rages against the vulnerabilities of middle age.

  • Let me say off the bat that without the transcendent performance of its star... Martin Pieter Zandvliet's drama about an allegedly recovering alcoholic trying to regain custody of her kids would add very little to the conversation.

  • Though much of Applause... feels confining and self-aggrandizing, there's no denying that you can't take your eyes off star Paprika Steen.

    April 8, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Zandvliet and Steen create an unvarnished saga of a recovering alcoholic whose acting career makes all that teetering on the edge of one-day-at-a-time very public. It is a singular performance and a deeply affecting if imperfect film.

    April 7, 2016 | Full Review…
  • As a showcase for its star, the Danish actress Paprika Steen, it's still rewarding in its own quiet, jarring way.

    April 7, 2016 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • As much of [Steen] as there is, you'll want more.
