Critic Reviews for Pause

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (12)

  • Fryogeni, who bears a striking resemblance to Frances McDormand, appears in almost every shot, and she carries the film with a bravura performance of a woman at her wit's end.

    June 14, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A work of considerable tonal complexity, as it stirs moments of pitch-black humor and short and violent reveries into an otherwise austerely told tale of spousal strife that wants to smash the patriarchy with feats of cinematic derring-do.

    July 11, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Pause is not an easy or a pleasant film to watch, but it does have individual moments and sequences that are simply transfixing, as well as a strong, well-defined painterly aesthetic.

    September 27, 2019 | Full Review…
  • There may be an absence of comedy, dry, situational, or otherwise, but Mishiali certainly didn't intend to squash any personal hopes and daydreams with this film. Rather, she made a film that demands them to flourish.

    September 22, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Pause is dark, dry, and completely ruthless when it comes to admonishing the patriarchal structures that keep women down, particularly in the film's Cyprus setting.

    August 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The film is observant, and Mishiali uses deftly its main character towards her self-regulated journey to freedom.
