Mute Reviews

September 1, 2019
Mute gets so caught up in the mystery aspect of the story that all logic swirls together with nonsense resulting in this muddy sci-fi diarrhea with head scratching character turns and questionable reveals that aren't fully explained.

Good performances, a stimulating production design work and a remarkable third act. [Full Review in Spanish]

For as debased and violent as Mute is, it's also incredibly cerebral and Netflix encourages the kind of online social engagement that cultivates discussion.

It won't be for everyone, but it's something strangely compelling to watch.

For too long it just feels like we're watching a very compelling detective story being inexplicably interrupted at regular intervals by a series of disconnected cyberpunk character-vignettes.

There are great ideas and some incredible design on display that have to contend with aspects of the script and story that might've been better excised.

If you binged Altered Carbon and are still craving more of this dark and gritty world filled with lots of rain and neon lights, then Netflix has a gift for you.

If films like this stop being funded altogether in favour of crowd-pleasers rather than crowd-challengers, we're damned. That's your most plausible dystopian future, folks.

Worth checking out once you've seen Netflix's Annihilation, but before you get into Altered Carbon.

Another inimitable chapter in an increasingly fascinating filmography.

Intoxicatingly complicated and spiked with moral ambivalence, Mute is a sci-fi noir that requires concentration.

Mute feels like Jones's most personal film to date. It's ambitious, it's flawed but it's beautiful.

Futuristic thriller has brutality, sex, cursing.
February 24, 2018
the clash of tropes and types seems part of the point, as Jones brings the obsolescent values of cinema's silent era (embodied by Leo) into collision with a less rooted postmodern future, and sees what survives to emerge from the murky waters.
February 23, 2018
Jones is clearly striving to develop something fresh out of well-trodden material, and Mute at least exhumes Jones' stature as a notable auteur.

Blade Runner's kinky cousin. ... What Mute lacks in originality, it makes up for in risky storytelling and unpredictably grimy plot decisions.

It may not be something to shout about, but it's definitely worth an indoor-voiced cheer.
