Critic Reviews for The Human Surge

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (10)

  • Williams sympathizes with his protagonists, though his film is too fluid and keen on catching the quirkiness of everyday speech and capturing languid moods to act as agitprop.

  • There are two bravura shots in The Human Surge... Otherwise, well, it's tough going.

    July 11, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Williams's bewildering, sinuous film encourages us to realise that getting lost is a destination in itself.

    July 9, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • There is something exasperating in the way it withholds the pleasures of film from its audience, allowing long stretches to unfold with no lighting and semi-audible dialogue.

    July 7, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Though the picture is admirable on a conceptual level, its execution is incoherent, interminable and a colossal strain on the eyes.

    March 3, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Just when you think you've got the movie pegged, it pulls a daring switch of perspective. While the thrill of that little coup is short-lived, it suggests that Mr. Williams may come up with something more substantial with his next feature.
