Critic Reviews for The Student ((M)uchenik)

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (33) | Rotten (5)

  • For most of its running time, The Student is immensely compelling, a terrifying ride between hothouse realism and dreamy metaphor.

    February 8, 2018 | Full Review…
  • His social criticism can be heavy-handed, but his direction of actors (many of whom had never appeared in a movie before this one) is remarkable; Pyotr Skvortsov is terrifying in the lead.

    April 27, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A serious, sharply mounted drama that gets more engrossing as it moves along.

    April 21, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Traditional high school antics take a Russian existentialist pummelling in The Student, a compelling and unnerving satire from writer-director Kirill Serebrennikov.

    Top Critic
  • If The Student lacks the searing moral exactness of the Russian literature on which it draws, it's an often hypnotic warning against dogma's eternal allure.

    Phil Hoad

    Guardian
    Top Critic
  • With its kinetic camerawork, passion-storm dialogue and volatile mood-play it's the most mesmerising Russian film since Leviathan. And topical with it.
