...an often hypnotically ambitious debut feature...

With Krisha, Shults shows that he knows how to get people's attention-figuring out what to do with it is another story altogether.

KRISHA is a well-deserved achievement for a project that hits close to anybody, but the flair of experimentation from Schults' camera keeps the tension at a fever pitch.

The film practically vibrates with a nervous energy.

Shults can't quite help himself from over-directing every moment. He's seemingly lived this subject matter, even casting himself as Krisha's long tormented son. But being this close to the material has swayed his film into the realm of misery porn.

Krisha comes from real pain, a wound that is thoroughly opened up on screen. I can't wait to see what Shults and his aunt do next.
September 12, 2017
Krisha certainly is a difficult film to like or recommend in the traditional sense, but what writer-director Trey Edward Shults has birthed here is something that demands to be seen.

Mimicking the one-track mind of addiction, this movie is about Krisha: her humanity, her fear, her actions and their consequences.
December 30, 2016
It's one of the more challenging -- and perhaps rewarding -- film-going experiences of the year so far.

If this isn't the first work of a major filmmaker I'll eat my review. And I'll film it for you on YouTube.
December 9, 2016
Among the most engrossing 80-or-so minutes you'll see all year.
December 8, 2016
Tough to stomach, but incredible talent in front of and behind the camera.
December 7, 2016
Krisha is a truly unique film, and one that I'll be thinking about for weeks.
December 6, 2016
Are we watching the emergence of America's next great filmmaker?
December 5, 2016
The tension is apparent from the off and this tightly wound and intimate drama delivers on both the intensity and complexity of a black sheep returning to the fold.

A family Thanksgiving reunion starts with a flurry of "so good to see yous" and ends in expletive-laden recriminations in this brilliantly feel-bad debut from name-to-remember Trey Edward Shults.
November 29, 2016
A big old family might gather under a single roof in Krisha, but the intriguing indie nonetheless steers clear of home-for-the-holidays formula -- it's more emotional-spiral suspense film than sentimental drama.
October 23, 2016
...as if we're experiencing that most familiar of American traditions-Thanksgiving dinner-through the eyes of an uncomfortable alien.
July 11, 2016
Other than a kitchen catastrophe, there's not a sloppy moment in Trey Edward Shults' micro-budgeted, crowdsourcedKrisha, an incredibly well-constructed debut feature that plays like a home movie gone awry.
July 1, 2016
This is boldly independent work, with more than enough painful, searing drama to leave a mark.
