  • The movie would like to see itself as a feminist allegory of abuse and systemic oppression, but it comes off as something far more scattered and unfocused.

  • There's no puppet master here - just a pair of hands waving in the air, not quite sure what to do once we're paying attention.

    June 6, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "Judy and Punch" feeds on the comic violence that has always informed this material, and finds any number of amusing ways to weaponize it against the irredeemable puppetmaster who's due to become the butt of his own joke.

    June 5, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • "Judy & Punch" is a promising debut for Foulkes, and it's always nice to see the tables turned on centuries of mistreatment.

    June 5, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • As the movie's tone teeters awkwardly between farce and tragedy, tenderness and bloody vengeance, it's the performances that root it...

    June 5, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • There's a lot going on here, and it all gets a bit heavy-handed at times. But [director Mirrah] Foulkes certainly knows how to create a mood, helped along by a doomy score from Francois Tetaz.
