Critic Reviews for Tragic Jungle

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (6)

  • Mexican filmmaker Yulene Olaizola's fifth and most assured feature seduces you away from the legibility of its premise so gradually that you don't realize you've lost your bearings until it's already too late...

    June 14, 2021 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • But through the alien beauty of its visuals, Andrewin's hidden-waters-run-deep performance, and its increasingly tense atmosphere, Tragic Jungle casts an unsettling spell.

  • More conceptual than intuitive, Tragic Jungle offers the problem without the passion: a journey into the heart of darkness without the thrill of the unknown.

    June 9, 2021 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • This is a quietly captivating tale that feels cautionary and yet does not have an easily parsable moral, perhaps because the justice it serves is mapped to a timescale much longer than humanity's.

  • Trespassing any of these limits carries grave consequences ripe for captivating cinema in the proper hands. That's indisputably the case here.

  • It feels more like a sampling of moods and themes than a full-fledged narrative. Still, certain moments linger in your mind...

  • Viewers who pay close attention to the sights and sounds that comprise this haunting film will be rewarded... This is a stunning tale of oppression writ large

  • To be frank, I couldn't find one single original idea in this shapeless movie.
