The Eyes of My Mother works because it presents itself as a quiet, unstated piece but effortlessly transitions into a true horror show exploring the depths of the lead character's altered mind.

beautiful exploration of how a person's view of life, death, pain, and normalcy can be warped from a young age and the slow loss of connection to the real world by being cut off from it and building her own world with her own values and family.

If Portugal were the portal to some Lynchian netherworld of dreams deferred, it would look something like Nicolas Pesce's sumptuously grotesque directorial debut, The Eyes of My Mother.

Pesce shoots his horrific creation with a distinct arthouse flair and constructs an isolated environment, in which no one can hear you scream.
June 4, 2019
A haunting slow-burn of a film, one that eats its way under the skin with sadistic precision

Haunting piece of art horror. I felt compelled from start to finish. [Full review in Spanish].
