June 13, 2006
Dark, probing, and truly disturbing, Seidl's astonishing feature debut explores angst, anomie, and alientaion in Vienna's upscale suburbs in visually audacious mode that goes beyond Todd Solondz and Todd Haynes.

Oddly compelling, disturbing -- some might say disturbed -- look at suburban life, Austrian style.

Strangely entertaining.

What some detect as cruelty in Dog Days is in fact a bleak but deeply felt humanism -- a yearning that we might all learn to better love our neighbors and, perhaps more importantly, ourselves.
December 30, 2003
A masterpiece of misanthropy...an uncompromisingly bleak reverie on human misery and meanness.

October 3, 2003
This is a lament on the human condition, free of scented roses and free of solemnity.

[Seidl] is a talented man with things to say. And he says them, whether or not you approve or even care to listen. We applaud that.

No one here is beyond redemption. What leads one to suspect that Seidl is far more than a cold sensationalist is his ability to find that flicker of humanity in even his most wretched characters.

This startling debut fiction feature goes to great, hectoring lengths to prove its final line: 'People are so cruel' -- a judgment from which the filmmaker himself is presumably not exempt.

The land of Mozart seems now inhabited by looney tunes.

July 16, 2003
An engrossing and disturbing film that feels like a Dogma 95 film made by Todd Haynes.

Seidl's "Days" is a gritty mess.

The film does generate a unique level of intensity, and even the most harrowing scenes contain grace and humour.

September 29, 2017
Seidl's talent for satirical invective is neutralized by his weakness for over-the-top narrative pyrotechnics-this is more warmed-over Quentin Tarantino than Georg Grosz.
April 19, 2009
Director Ulrich Seidl presents a mean spirited satire of Austrian suburbia in this ugly movie that is quite possibly the worst film (foreign or domestic) of 2003.
