Critic Reviews for State Funeral

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (1)

  • The cumulative effect is to encourage distrust of state-sponsored imagery in any form, and to suggest that, under the spell of the right official narrative, we too might be moved to authentic tears.

  • This cannily edited selection of rare archive footage reveals the peak of the people's mind-born terror, and it is the beginning of the end.

    September 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Rarely, if ever, have we seen state-sponsored pomp and ceremony on such a breath-taking scale.

    September 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A time capsule of a strange moment in history, State Funeral is a glimpse into the world of a cult of personality that seems incredibly alien and scarily familiar at the same time.

    September 5, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Sergei Loznitsa's 135-minute triumph is a beast of a film and one with its roots firmly in Soviet documentary... a herculean effort of archival dumpster diving

    August 24, 2020 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • As presented, State Funeral conjures a vision of gaslighting on an unimaginable scale-impossible to consign to history's dustbin.
