Critic Reviews for Violation

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (21) | Rotten (5)

  • Only Miriam emerges as a character to latch onto, but she's too emotionally elusive to moor the audience in even her basest motivations. All the pieces of a delectable genre piece are here, but nobody's home.

  • Beware, all those sensitive to graphic violence and animal cruelty, though the end credits do insist that "no animals were harmed" in the making of the film. Does that include human animals? This movie is savage enough to make you wonder.

  • A smart, emotionally shattering piece of work.

  • Through her performance of stupendous physical and emotional strength and vulnerability, Sims-Fewer wears her trauma so convincingly that by the end of it all, her pain sneaks up on you as if it's your own.

  • [T]he dead-seriousness with which Sims-Fewer and Mancinelli approach their subject is admirable, and you won't find another film this year that subverts the male gaze in such a brutally naked manner.

  • Violation starts out well but disappoints
