July 20, 2019
Profound mental illness is rarely a laughing matter, but The Voices proves that no subject is too bleak to wring comedy from.
July 18, 2019
Here we have a rather sluggish and tonally awkward blend that is neither successful as a comedy or a darker genre effort.
June 11, 2019
Somewhat resembling Pushing Daisies if starring Norman Bates, The Voices is a strangely macabre, entertaining spate of lurid whimsy.
April 4, 2019
Really, this is Reynolds' and Satrapi's show and they've both done fantastic work, creating a gory horror-comedy that is funny, unsettling, character driven, and unexpectedly deft.
December 7, 2018
The Voices is a horrifying and hilarious mind trip, both morbid and heartfelt.
October 24, 2018
The Voices [is] one of the most entertaining of its kind since Donnie Darko confused us all over a decade ago. Give the movie a chance, these voices demand to be heard.

Sometimes may feel like its struggling to get settled into what it's really looking to achieve, although that could well be by design as it does add a frantic, impulsive edge to the film.
October 11, 2017
Despite committed performances, The Voices can never transcend the inherent problems in its screenplay.
September 20, 2016
Visually, the film's amazing, blending the everyday with more fantastical elements in a small-town, blue collar version of the fairy tale Iranian landscape in Chicken with Plums.
June 21, 2016
Those that are on-board with its distressing comedy will find both an acute exploration of mental illness and the makings of a cult classic.
May 27, 2016
On paper, it all might sound rather sad and grubby, but it is actually a rather elegant little macabre tragedy.
January 7, 2016
While it may not necessarily be a film that will be universally embraced by genre fans, The Voices is a triumphant example of independent filmmaking at its very best and is undoubtedly one of the best roles Reynolds' has tackled to date.
January 2, 2016
Rarely do movies shout so loud yet communicate so little.
December 18, 2015
Reynolds is fantastic as the deeply confused protagonist, while Arterton and Kendrick do some very subtle work in the margins. Don't read anything more. Just see it.
August 26, 2015
A bonkers take on the serial killer genre that grips in spite of its flaws.
August 20, 2015
It borrows its best elements from contemporary adult animation and an post-underground sense of humor that make this an extravagant dark comedy. [Full review in Spanish]
August 17, 2015
Marjane Satrapi's surreal sense of humour makes The Voices a gory and unexpectedly pleasurable dark comedy.
August 13, 2015
A "deliriums tremens" turned into a comedy, with good gags that counterpoint the dramatic aspects of this synister and dark story. [Full review in Spanish]
August 13, 2015
Satrapi's film is at heart a comedy, but it has some very forced moments that really don't work. [Full review in Spanish]
August 13, 2015
An interesting cinematic experience that proves a solid work of Satrapi as a director and Reynolds as an actor. [Full review in Spanish]
