September 28, 2020
Little Joe is a masterclass in off-kilter cinematography, and rising and sustained tension, with the sterile setting of the scientific laboratories the perfect backdrop to this creepy chiller.
August 16, 2020
So overloaded with mannered style that its deliberately glacial pacing ultimately outstays its welcome and its messaging becomes muddied.
August 3, 2020
Packs dangerous thoughts, but is nothing if not a conversation starter.
July 30, 2020
An extremely arrogant film whose genre is unknown and misused for the sake of some story yet to be found. [Full review in Spanish].

The film updates the plot of Invasion of the Body Snatchers to our fake happy era, with a Charlie Brooker-style cautionary tale.
June 11, 2020
A very interesting and intelligent essay on motherhood and happiness camouflaged in colorful and dystopian terror. [Full review in Spanish]

'Little Joe' reformulates the paranoia in horror with an exquisite and icy staging. [Full Review in Spanish]

"Little Joe" is the artificial nature. An intervention of people in what they cannot dominate. A sample of how we accept what is harmful and normalize it; a terrifying event. [Full review in Spanish]
April 11, 2020
Yet another unconventional horror story with a deeply buried message, Little Joe is distinctly unusual in style, narrative, theme, and prevailing mood.
April 10, 2020
As the story progresses, the psychothriller mind games get deeper and crazier, giving it some delectable thematic richness.
April 4, 2020
This subtle, insidious science fiction thriller deserves an appreciative audience.
March 9, 2020
Bereft of any sort of sex, violence or frissons, the almost experimental film goes to work on your head and as such, will likely stick with you and haunt you for days to come.

It should find an audience among those who want to see something less obvious, but with a more lasting effect. [Full review in Spanish]

Austere and insinuating rather than genuinely scary, Little Joe gets by on an air of fragrant rot when it ought to be sprinkling Miracle-Gro on our fears.
February 24, 2020
This agonisingly slow pseudo sci-fi has camera moves, performances and lines of dialogue that. Seem. To. Take. An. Eternity. To. Deliver. Without. Much. Impact. Or. Dramatic. Pay Off.
February 24, 2020
It's a little film. But it's epic.
February 23, 2020
For some, Little Joe may seem too sterile to engage emotionally, but I found it glassily unsettling - even more so on second viewing. Inhale at your peril.
February 23, 2020
A fascinating but aloof chiller that updates ideas from Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Brave New World, and the paranoiac fiction of Ira Levin to the pharmaceutical present.
February 21, 2020
Little Joe charges its icy air with... thorny questions, but Hausner leaves the viewer to answer them.
February 21, 2020
Too much arthouse and not enough entertainment.
