Movie Info

Two wanted women decide to rob their wealthy yet mentally unstable friend who lives in a fantasy world they all created as children. To take her money, the girls must take part in a deadly and perverse game of make believe throughout a sprawling yet decaying estate. As things become increasingly violent and hallucinatory, they realize that obtaining the money may be the least of their concerns.

Critic Reviews for Braid

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Suspense, let alone psychological nuance or narrative development, all take a back seat to what feels like an empty, mannered series of dress-up photo opportunities.

Top Critic

Bolstered by its kinetic cinematography and stellar production design, Mitzi Peirone's surreal nightmare Braid is a crazy fever dream of deranged games and broken realities.

Nov 29, 2018 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

A gorgeously vibrant and yet shockingly violent bourgeois horror-comedy that relishes in its three female leads, proving that femininity can be deadly.

Sep 4, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

A story of dashed dreams, continuous (child's) play and ready retreats into fantasy.

Aug 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Deeply disorienting, highly stylised and cruelly ludic to the end, Braid... shows disengaged, nostalgic escapism itself as something occasionally worth escaping.
