November 11, 2019
Little Joe is a terrible waste of potential.
November 11, 2019
It's the creepiest sounding horror tale since "A Quiet Place."
November 4, 2019
With a commercial catalog as harmless as ours, Little Joe's appeal is, despite its ups and downs, very worthy of being taken into account. [Full Review in Spanish]
October 28, 2019
Through clinically precise visual design, including expressive use of lighting and framing, Hausner is able to sustain an otherworldly atmosphere that evokes paranoia and dread.
October 23, 2019
Hausner's camera (by Martin Gschlacht) is secretive as its anecdote, mysterious, gives time to character conversations. [Full Review in Spanish]
October 4, 2019
A deliberately clinical, even cold film about the horror of synthetic happiness, Little Joe is an impressively stylish film that puts the demands of idealized happiness under the microscope in uncomfortable, disturbing ways.
June 13, 2019
Little Joe presents Hausner in one of her best moments in audiovisual terms. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 12, 2019
The actors all speak like robots... and the Japanese music of Teiji Ito (of the 70's), added to strange noises, creates an artificial and useless atmosphere. [Full Review in Spanish]

Hausner seems more preoccupied with shipshape formalism and a jarring soundtrack than in creating a resonant mother-son story...this time, the form just takes over everything else.
May 30, 2019
Apart from the fascinating costume design... the musical soundtrack deserves a separate comment. [Full review in Spanish]
May 27, 2019
The film never gets to fascinate or move too much. [Full Review in Spanish]
May 27, 2019
The film impresses both coherence and coldness; the strange familiarity as the distance between ironic and only cynical. [Full Review in Spanish]
May 25, 2019
Hausner can't really find the tension in the story.
May 24, 2019
It gets under your skin and lays eggs there. A standout oddity.
May 24, 2019
It's tricky, beguiling stuff, rendered with an eerie sterilized beauty.
May 23, 2019
[Emily] Beecham is terrific, switching between conviction and doubt with frightening ease, and Ben Whishaw is well cast against his usual sweet type.
May 23, 2019
It shows a remarkable rigidity, almost orthopedic, that does not benefit the strictly fantastic nature of the proposal at all. [Full review in Spanish]
May 23, 2019
[Director] Jessica Hausner builds a mysterious tale. [Full review in Spanish]
May 23, 2019
Little Joe's questions continue to resonate long after the film ends. [Full review in Spanish]
May 22, 2019
The metaphorical strength of the happy plant is explained over again, but doesn't fully land. But Hausner is a great director and this is an enjoyable and interesting film.
