Fanning is in fine form as a woman who can't vocalize her emotions, though it's Pearce here who steals the show.

There's an odor that lingers long after "Brimstone"'s final fade-out. And it's not sulfur.

Top Critic

I'm all for heroic exertion in pursuit of one's art, but in this case I wish Koolhoven had tried therapy first.

Top Critic

For all the visceral depictions of hatred and violence and human destruction, it feels as if the director is chasing his own tail and forgetting about making it all mean something.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

The carnage pushes you away (and wears you down), even as the genre, industrious cast, beautiful landscapes and stark, often striking visuals pull you in.

New York Times
Top Critic

A film that ostensibly aims to expose the subjugation of women spends an awful lot of time hurting and humiliating them.
