Critic Reviews for Safari

  • Seidl allows the activity to condemn itself through unrehearsed footage and long, painfully awkward silences. Those who can stomach the scenes of slaughter, however, can find a unique perspective on hunting.

  • The most recent feature film by Siedl presents to us... without editorializing anything, without needing to underline the obvious, a group of Austrian hunters in some African country. [Full review in Spanish]

  • Subtly, Safari reminds us that we're all complicit in the slaughter of animals, even if most of us never want to mount an elk head on our wall as a trophy.

  • ... though it would seem overdue to simply discuss why [director Ulrich Seidl] is an outstanding filmmaker, of which Safari once again provides ample proof.

  • Seidl shows, without a hint of emotional involvement, a microcosm of regimented menus of collapsing pieces, minutely constructed trophy photographs and sinister cutting rooms. [Full review in Spanish]

  • A film about contemporary resistances of colonialism in Africa and its implementation as a holiday activity for European bourgeois. [Full review in Spanish]
