Critic Reviews for Mammal
As delicately drawn by Daly and co-writer Glenn Montgomery, the nervous, mutually tip-toed bond that reveals itself between Margaret and Joe runs counter to the luridly melodramatic lines threatened by the premise.
Daly has crafted a carefully calibrated portrait of emotional loss in its various manifestations.
Griffiths is good and she does what she needs to do, though the film never for a moment feels emotionally or psychologically credible.March 31, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
Director Rebecca Daly has a knack for carnality in a film punctuated by wailing, nocturnal tomcats and outbreaks of violence.March 2, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
The story is ponderous, the scenes of violence that shatter the downbeat mood are largely unconvincing, and the film's detached questioning of human behaviour fails to engage emotionally as the film wanders to an unsatisfactory end.July 19, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
Sensitively judged, totally committed performances from Rachel Griffiths and Barry Keoghan carry a tale that edges towards Greek tragedy in its treatment of the fragile, twisted bond between mothers and sons.
