Critic Reviews for The Cut

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (10)

  • Akin uses a visually compelling yet sober, almost restrained, aesthetic that differs from the more full-throttle approach of some of his previous work.

    October 29, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite its visual beauty and Rahim's extraordinary, and silent, performance, the film never quite manages to connect on an emotional level.

    October 15, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Akin has mischievously called the movie a western, and his wide-screen photography gives a sweeping sense of the vast distances separating the hero from his girls.

    October 1, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The Cut is a haunting movie, but there are times when one wonders whether Akin should go more for the emotional jugular, rub our faces in the monstrosity he's depicting.

    September 20, 2015 | Full Review…
  • "The Cut" is not an optimistic film, but it presents a scenario rich enough to make you want to be optimistic.

    September 18, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This depiction could be seen as an allegory of the millions who have been displaced by the Syrian war and continue to fight for their survival as refugees.

  • An effective and old-fashioned weeper about a volatile time for the Armenian people.

    August 29, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Its historical devils are never really front and center, and The Cut could, in fact, be described as the most hopeful genocide drama ever.

Audience Reviews for The Cut

  • Oct 14, 2014
    Overly sentimental and a little simplistic, but handsome photography and Rahim's performance keep it eminently watchable.
