All Critics (52) | Top Critics (19) | Fresh (47) | Rotten (5)

  • The plot may seem familiar from dozens of other Mafia movies but what is original here is the film's mournful tone and its absolute refusal to glamorize violence in any way.

  • In Black Souls the Italian mafia is leached of all glamour in a tale of three Calabrian brothers that grows stranger and more compelling by the minute.

  • The film's long low hum of quiet pays off with an aptly shocking climax.

    October 29, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This Mafia drama sets out to strip away any hint of glamour.

    October 26, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Though the content of the typical mob movie can shock with its brutality and perversity, the tragic arc ultimately reinforces traditional values while allowing a vicarious indulgence in the taboo.

    May 21, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Writer-director Franceso Munzi has particularized the familial relationships enough for it to stand on its own. (As Tolstoy wrote, all happy crime families are the same but each unhappy crime family is unhappy in its own way.)
