Critic Reviews for The Cleaners

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

The Cleaners prevails most by shining a light on those whose existence has all but been erased by a flawed system, all so that everyone else can still be heard on social media.

The sinister tone it sets early on, with anonymous employees hiding behind monitors, flattens out into petrified despair.

Topical resonance is all that the movie musters, as it changes subject matter on a whim and doesn't give the audience enough background information on the issues or the interviewees to make a whole lot of sense.

April 9, 2018 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

It's when the doc moves from the micro to the macro view that it gets less cohesive, but it still makes some vital statements in doing so.

February 11, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

None of the ideas expressed by the interview subjects in the film are necessarily new, but they're laid out in a way that are easily accessible no matter what level of technical expertise that audience has.
