  • Engrossing.

  • Imagine the shock, imagine the adjustment, imagine not wanting to adjust. "Don't Call Me Son" imagines all that and more while calling into question the nature of bonding, blood and close ties.

  • It revs up, makes its spirited mess of issues, maintains its complicated humanity, then ends. That may not make it everybody's cup of tea, but hey, Muylaert seems to be saying, what movie or person is?

    November 9, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A hazy drift through vast subjects - the fluidity of adolescence and the fragility of family - Anna Muylaert's Don't Call Me Son works best when it goes small.

    November 3, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Indicates a filmmaker of remarkable range, subtlety and intelligence -- a Brazilian talent who's deservedly gaining a place on the world stage.

    November 2, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The narrowness of its perspective and its relatively brief 82-minute length disappoint. Yet "Don't Call Me Son" still manages to be a fascinating, sympathetic portrait of a lost boy abruptly thrown to the wolves.

Audience Reviews for Don't Call Me Son

  • Feb 17, 2019
    By trying to bring together two poorly-developed ideas without the cohesion necessary for each to work, this inconsistent drama feels only unfocused and frustratingly unclear about what it wants to say, as it even wastes time with a pointless subplot centered on the character's brother.
