What to know

critics consensus

Destroyer's grueling narrative is as uncompromising as Nicole Kidman's central performance, which adds extra layers to a challenging film that leaves a lingering impact. Read critic reviews

    Despite the garish make-up, Kidman is remarkably understated and I like how Kusama plays with memory in the flashback sequences.

    Honestly expected more from Kusama after The Invitation, but while Destroyer is still a very well put-together genre film it does little to exceed the boundaries of its given genre-even with a fully committed and totally de-glamorized Nicole Kidman performance. The structure tries to do something interesting with the crime thriller tropes as well, but even that twist feels somewhat rote at this point. Still, it's not not entertaining and I was just invested enough to care about where the story took our main character.
