All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

  • Peirone's first feature is marked by a daring style and a willingness to dive deeply into the darker psychology of female friendship. A uniquely feminine horror film, "Braid" is a bold debut worth watching.

  • I came away feeling that I'd seen, if not a major film, then a film by major talents.

  • Braid ultimately offers far more style than substance. But it provides many memorable moments and stunning visuals along the way, making it a cinematic ride worth experiencing for more adventurous viewers.

  • Peirone's everything-but-the-kitchen-sink directing does tend to head butt her thin writing, but the movie eventually coalesces as a sly, bitter parable against chasing-your-dreams optimism.

  • 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.

  • A dark ride of a movie. Braid feels relevant in a tornado of movies lacking creativity. [Full review in Spanish].
