Dreamlike and haunting, We the Animals approaches the coming-of-age odyssey with a uniquely documentarian eye.

This movie is so gorgeous, it even makes drone footage look ethereal rather than pedestrian.
The conclusion is certain enough to be practically foregone, and if what leads up to it is aggressively arty, it's also artful and frank, a rare combination.
Zagar builds a world that is simultaneously deeply authentic and dreamlike - the perfect combination to express a child's deeply felt but inherently distorted view of the universe he inhabits.
One of the best of the year so far.
The movie is all nuance and it continually wafts away into artiness.
[A] stunning, semi-impressionistic film...
Mounted with arresting visuals and dream-like tones by documentarian Jeremiah Zagar, We The Animals is a strong personal statement sustained by an absorbing narrative.
Torres's...writing is blunt and evocative, like poetry turned prose. The new film adaptation of the book by director Jeremiah Zagar turns the story back into poetry again.
We the Animals is the promising start [Zagar] was looking for. I think he has a lot to be proud of. Everyone involved in this production does.
There's powerful love beneath the frustration of [this] impoverished life on oblivion's edge [...] expressed with authenticity to understand its role in the boys' evolution.
Rhythm that achieves a peculiar reverie, diaphanous but unreal and that is what makes We the Animals an experience. [Full Review in Spanish]
Amid the camerawork and imaginative depiction of [character] Jonah's inner-workings are some truly spectacularly heartbreaking performances.
