The film halfheartedly stokes a glacial, almost imperceptibly slow burn that never gives off any heat.
November 13, 2018
Handsomely mounted, with the kind of high-end, bleakly beautiful cinematography that is now common amongst period productions, but it's the performances that make it shine.

Interesting revisionist western thriller that ends up blanks. [Full review in Spanish]
October 23, 2017
For genre-lovers, this tense and nasty drama is definitely worth a look.
August 24, 2017
The Keeping Room tells a story we actually need to hear, no matter how many times it'll take for the audience in attendance, or the reader at his Twitter, or the police in the station, to listen.
February 18, 2017
With the feminist themes lurking in the background but never explored in a satisfying manner, The Keeping Room is hard to see as anything other than a missed opportunity.
December 19, 2016
A film in which Daniel Barber returns to the western, focusing again on female figures isolated in a hostile landscape. [Full review in Spanish]
December 12, 2016
At times the film approaches pure horror, shocking the audience and making it expectant of what can happen next. [Full review in Spanish]
December 12, 2016
The director has distanced from the material, translating into a lack of nerves that fails to correct a final shot that closes the film. [Full review in Spanish]

The Keeping Room shines thanks to exchanges between Brit Marling, Hailee Steinfeld and Muna Otaru.

This movie stays with you and I would highly recommend it. Leave your genre expectations at the door and just enjoy the beauty the environment and seeing some badass women beat up dudes for a change.

Julia Hart's script has perceptive things to say about race relations and women's role in wartime.
August 11, 2016
...before you know it, the film grabs you by the neck.
June 24, 2016
There are a few plot holes and some stiff acting, but the threesome is compelling as the gals get their guns and their revenge.
June 19, 2016
A handsomely crafted, slowburning tale that tries a little too hard to place its political themes at the forefront of the action.
June 19, 2016
The term "revisionist western" has been overused lately. However, this blend of slow-burning frontier feminism and taut home invasion thriller is probably the most authentically unorthodox take on the genre you will see for a while.
June 17, 2016
An engaging and atmospheric western that gains an extra level of interest from adding a female-centred angle to a familiar genre.
June 16, 2016
Highly recommended.
June 16, 2016
The tension is slow-building but palpable, and the movie ends with a nail-biting home invasion and a refreshing feminist sting.
June 16, 2016
Its two most charismatic performers, Otaru and Steinfeld, are the ones with the least to do. A serious and absorbing piece of work, nonetheless.
