Little Joe Reviews

Page 2 of 4
December 5, 2019
Stylish and provocative, but emotionally inert and ultimately underwhelming with no way for the audience to feel connected to any of the characters.
December 4, 2019
It's one thing for a movie to be quiet in its approach. It's quite another for it to have ideas that really deserve less than a murmur, that never scale the heights of mild interest on the way to drama.
December 4, 2019
Sci-fi dirge may create false worry for kids; mild violence.
December 3, 2019
A delightfully oddball and dread-filled psycho-bio thriller.
December 3, 2019
"Little Joe" is a tale of exquisite refinement, not heavy-handed horror, always walking that thin line between implication and doubt.
December 3, 2019
A diluted experience, perhaps in need of its own whiff of that sweet, euphoric pollen.
December 1, 2019
A low rent "body snatchers."
November 26, 2019
Jessica Hausner confidently expresses a thorny and disturbing theme, though perhaps with too much confidence.
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."

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]

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]
June 4, 2019
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]
