  • Madeleine Sims-Fewer co-writes, co-directs and stars as Miriam in a daring and referential debut that questions the nature of revenge.

    May 11, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The culmination of a film career built on interrogating rage, justice, and the intangible promise of catharsis.

    April 5, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Violation impressively pushes against the typically straightforward trajectory of the rape-revenge film.

    April 2, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Remarkably accomplished, doing things quite daring and unexpected, and somehow it knows exactly when to be exploitative vs. when to draw back...very intense, I found it very very powerful.

    March 30, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Violation's points about violence, assault, and the disorientation of assault are all well-taken. But the strategies undertaken here feel like a lot of fuss distracting from a sincerely compelling core.

    March 29, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It's gruelling, but fiercely intelligent film-making.

    March 28, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
