XX Reviews

March 21, 2018
Framed by pretty banal animation, the film as a whole reflects a rather limited vision of womanhood, with three shorts focused solely on mothers. That XX proves patchy is a disappointment, particularly as it is a noble project.

It's pretty by the numbers.

The four narratives ... achieve varying levels of black comedy and terror with an emphasis on women's issues.

Two out of four is not a bad average, particularly when the half in question aren't pestiferous enough to warrant a ruckus. Fans of this sort of thing won't go hungry.

If XX is trying to make some sort of statement, it's not doing so with much clarity or power.

The feminine perspectives of "XX" create for powerfully compelling and original horror tales that operate within the genre while testing the boundaries of traditional storytelling and style

A first of its kind in a male-dominated genre, these four short films are signed, sealed and delivered as a form of empowerment.

The results offer a collective shiver (not a lot of shrieks here) for those in the mood for sprightly, short-form misfortune.

An entertaining collection of short films loosely strung together by stop-motion animation from Sofia Carillo, whose Victorian aesthetic doesn't carry over into the work it's connecting.

Even at their least individually striking, each of these mismatched tasters stirs an appetite for a fuller, meatier meal from its maker - cooked as bloodily rare as possible, please.

Wrapped in Sofia Carrillo's whimsical stop-motion animation, heavy in embroidery and little talisman objects that come to life, the four shorts traverse the spectrum of "horror."

A wonderful idea that simply does not result in a wonderful film.

While it's uneven as these combos invariably are, genre enthusiasts looking for a female spin will want to check it out.
