Critic Reviews for Bad Hair

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (22) | Fresh (37) | Rotten (2)

  • There's a sense of being trapped that permeates "Bad Hair" - trapped in your own flesh, trapped in circumstances, trapped in the family you're born into.

    February 27, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • Rondn has plenty of important and harsh things to say about social constructs, hypocrisy and maternal tough love.

    February 13, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Rondn turns a deceptively simple coming-of-age tale into a vibrant treatise upon a raft of disparate issues ... with authenticity, integrity and, perhaps most impressively, a transcendent sense of levity.

    February 1, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The director Mariana Rondn elicits a moving and unaffected performance from Lange as the boy desperate to please his mother even as he realises how much his behaviour vexes her.

    January 29, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Pelo Malo, which translates as "bad hair", takes a child's-eye view of growing up mixed race in the slums of Caracas, Venezuela.

    January 29, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A quietly perceptive work that teases out insights without undue strain.

Audience Reviews for Bad Hair

  • Apr 12, 2016
    An irregular film that suffers from the contradictory behavior of its two main characters but has a poignant ending, even if the mother played by Castillo seems like a telenovela villain in urgent need of psychiatric help - although I do know that the world is full of people like that.
