  • It's a genuine modern masterpiece, which establishes Jenkin as one of the most arresting and intriguing British film-makers of his generation.

    September 1, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • In one of the most extraordinary movie experiences of the year, this Cornish-set drama unfolds in scratchy monochrome and jumpy, jarring shots, mostly featuring weather-beaten fishermen, and lobster pots, and nets and boats.

    August 31, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It is a film which is textural to the max. It is a film in which you can feel the grain... It is absolutely, proudly handmade.

    August 30, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Mark Jenkin has given us a brilliantly original, intriguing and deeply engaging story which is sure to resonate with anyone who has spent any amount of time in Cornwall as a tourist or otherwise.

    August 30, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film keeps you on your toes, sidestepping into unexpected places. Politically and cinematically, Jenkin is too much of an original to box himself in.

    August 28, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Strange, spellbinding and timely. One of the most thrillingly original British films in years.
