  • Nadiv's film forgoes an overarching narrative structure, which - depending on your patience with such things - is either exhilarating or exasperating. I found it to be the former, in no small part because newcomer Tom Mercier is absolutely riveting.

  • It's all very deep. Except, you know, not really.

  • As stiff-neck storytelling goes, this is pretty damn impressive.

  • What makes "Synonyms" so compelling is how it explores the theme of identity through a lens of searing self-reflection.

    November 19, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie... is antic, poetic, funny, and alarming in equal measure - a real ride, although where the ride is taking both its hero and the audience is always in question.

  • [Synonyms] is relentless, brutal, disorienting...

    For a while, the impression we have is that this film doesn't have that much structure, as things just seem to happen randomly to the protagonist (played by an excellent Tom Mercier), but in fact this apparent non-linearity works as a clever reflection of his unbalanced psychological state.
