Critic Reviews for The Student ((M)uchenik)
For most of its running time, The Student is immensely compelling, a terrifying ride between hothouse realism and dreamy metaphor.
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.
A serious, sharply mounted drama that gets more engrossing as it moves along.
The narrative starts out in the realm of unfussy realism and grows blacker, richer and more surreal.
Kirill Serebrennikov's study of a problem teenager's religious awakening is as aesthetically kinetic as it is intellectually rigorous.
