Critic Reviews for Sunset

All Critics (92) | Top Critics (30) | Fresh (55) | Rotten (37)

  • Stripped of life-and-death consequences, Sunset never convinces us that its protagonist can sustain such unrelenting scrutiny.

    December 2, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Instead, this feels like an abstract ode to the frantic, listless, tightly wound thing a city becomes on the eve of its demise.

    March 25, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Sunset is one of the most innovative and invigorating films I've seen, and I can't imagine that anything else this year could have topped it.

    December 30, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's all too vague to function effectively as either a commentary on the build-up to the Great War or as the story of a woman looking to find her place in a city predicated on rigid, gender-determined hierarchies.

    June 1, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Nothing is ever quite clear - often literally, because Nemes likes to keep the middle-distance out of focus. It was chillingly effective in Son of Saul. Here it's just deadening.

    May 31, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A thing to be admired and puzzled over, featuring fantastic feats of millinery. Magic and hats, anyone?

Audience Reviews for Sunset

  • Jul 20, 2019
    The movie is designed to be infuriatingly enigmatic (i.e.the main character clearly has an arc, but we're never directly told what changes about her) and while I understand criticisms of that choice I don't believe that it undermines the compelling narrative or direction.If anything, its a movie that demands further study rather than just superficial examination.
