Fargeat's grasp of male entitlement and the elements of a rape culture are as sharp as her instincts for visual storytelling.

Rape. Blood. Desert. Blood. Death. Blood. Drugs. Did I mention blood?Revenge, directed by Coralie Fargeat, is the French rape-revenge film you've been waiting for.

Feminist TNT. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
August 24, 2018
Revenge is bloody, disturbing, tense, and highly stylized. French horror is so exciting right now and I can't wait to see more from Coralie Fargeat.
August 23, 2018
The script, lamentable in all aspects, does not even spend some time to develop the personality of the protagonist so that it rises slightly above the male villains. [Full review in Spanish]
August 21, 2018
The French director shapes a feminist slasher film proclamation, dirty and extreme, as provocative as it is necessary, in which a superb Lutz ... stands as the ultimate weapon of female empowerment. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
August 15, 2018
If you can live with such a graphically violent film, you got yourself a bloody good one.
Full Review | Original Score: B

... an announcement, or a first emblematic symptom, of the positioning of women in the film industry who have placed the systematic abuse of men in their spotlight. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 29, 2018
The deliberately paced story lacks credibility and surprise. However, the dazzling visuals - not for the squeamish - along with Lutz's ferocious performance more than compensate.
June 20, 2018
Revenge is as much a jarringly smart exploration of gendered violence as it is a slasher spectacle.
June 7, 2018
Fargeat avoids modern cliches, such as altered timelines or found footage, to deliver a suspenseful nail-biter of a thriller, one that updates an old format with an interesting take on gender politic
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 4, 2018
It's a blood-soaked fable, a rape-revenge movie made with style and subtext.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
May 31, 2018
A stunning reinvention of the rape-revenge exploitation film that had me sitting at the edge of my seat first frame to last.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
May 31, 2018
Fargeat's sunny, Morocco-set film first deconstructs, then rebuilds those mechanics from an uncompromising feminist perspective.
May 23, 2018
What happens next is expected-a roaring rampage of revenge, with each of the three hunters confronted like a video game boss-but Fargeat has some fun tricks to deploy.
May 21, 2018
I'll admit, I've always had a hard time with rape-revenge thrillers... but [Revenge] asks us to look deeper, especially in the behaviour of women which is often considered worthy of blame when there should be none.
