The film balances revulsion with allure and all its action against the question of who knows what, when.
Piercing has the feel of a blueprint, a talented man exercising his technical skills while waiting for a whack at the real deal.
In a movie where everyone's crazy, Piercing makes their malady infectious.
After a briefly discombobulating fake-out twist, Piercing can't seem to figure out how to advance or complicate its sick-joke premise.
Piercing is a dark comedy pleasure spiked with pain. A sick and stylish love letter to giallo films of the '70s, Nicolas Pesce delivers cinematic kink at its finest.
Sexy, brutal, disturbing, Piercing is not one to be missed.
We're left with more mysteries than resolutions, and while a more mature filmmaker might bind that to a wider desire, it still makes for a damn entertaining 80 minutes.
Piercing is a propulsive, intricately crafted thriller that plays like the twisted lovechild of American Psycho and Phantom Thread. Slick and sick, sometimes sexy, and surprisingly sweet.
PIERCING is the rare second film from a new director which rivals its predecessor. The film is in conversation with Pesce's previous work, and continues his legacy as a new horror maestro in the making. Keep it up, sir.
While Piercing is an enjoyable psychosexual spar if you can get on its wavelength, it doesn't necessarily linger like the emotional or physical scars of its scary lead pair.
Wasikowska particularly shines in a complex role, while the film's colourful visuals and intoxicating score add to its irresistible allure.
As Piercing aptly demonstrates, desire and ability are two entirely different things.
