  • This is a shocking, wonderfully acted and surprisingly erotic film that leaves one with more questions than answers, like any good film that dares to tackle the vastness of faith should.

  • It may be sensual to watch but its goals are anything but sexy. What's more, it might not even be really necessary.

  • A heady vision of a secular state hanging by a slender thread.

  • Whether you read it as satire, science fiction or admonitions about our increasingly totalitarian times, the film's concluding monologue is one of mystical profundity. Very provocative.

  • For all its tangible glimpses into a near future dictated by the religious right, the dystopian world building can't make up for an unfocused character study at the centre.
