Critic Reviews for The Blazing World

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (24) | Rotten (12)

  • "The Blazing World" throws an ornate heap of production design at an anemically scripted psychological metaphor, and counts on a combination of fairy dust and sheer determined nerve to make the whole contraption fly.

    February 3, 2021 | Full Review…
  • To awe with outrageousness is impressive, to also get us to empathize is cinema divine.

    February 2, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Young's debut is ambitious and refuses to adhere to commercial conformity. It may not hit its emotional marks or substantially reinvent trauma depictions, but it's hard to ever be bored by a film that plays like a whimsical horror-fairy tale on acid.

    February 1, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's an imperfect debut, but it holds thrilling promise for what comes next.

    February 1, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Young's film is a theme park of self-indulgence that forgoes characters and narratives in favour of gratuitous fantasy.

    July 28, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • (Carlson) Young is a talented storyteller, with a limitless vision that should hopefully fall more into focus as her career behind the camera evolves.
