Critic Reviews for Partisan

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (23) | Fresh (28) | Rotten (20)

  • Partisan combines an inventive story, exquisite cinematography, a wonderful 80s-style electro soundtrack ... and perhaps most of all, provides a space for the greatest performance of Vincent Cassel's career.

    August 25, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Kleiman's Dogtooth-esque dark drama paints a weird and disturbing portrait of stolen innocence.

    January 10, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Kleiman has an eye for poetic imagery but the storytelling style is so oblique and dour that this is a jarring and difficult film to watch.

    January 8, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Oddly underpowered, anticlimactic and torpidly acted ...

    January 7, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • There's some decent technical stuff here, but the story's a big ol' bust.

    January 7, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A film trying so hard to upend expectations that it loses itself in the process.
