“Memoria is a beautiful and mysterious movie, slow cinema that decelerates your heartbeat.”
5/5 – The Guardian

“Rarely have a filmmaker and performer been so completely on the same page as Tilda Swinton and Apichatpong Weerasethakul are here.”
4/4 – Roger Ebert

“An emotionally wrenching and intellectually fulfilling experience.”
The New York Times




“A piece of pure cinema that’s also loaded with political meaning about our dominion over nature.”
The Wrap

“Let’s get the bad puns out of the way first: Andrea Arnold’s Cow is a mooooving and udderly intimate portrait of bovine life as experienced on a farm in rural England.”
The Hollywood Reporter

“There is something very heartfelt and committed about Andrea Arnold’s film: a poignancy and intimacy.”
4/5 – The Guardian
