“A carefully crafted cross-section of historic Cornish folklore that taps into the heart of the county’s culture.” 4/5 – Far Out

“Jenkin’s style is so unusual, so unadorned, it feels almost like a manuscript culture of cinema. There is real artistry in it.” 4/5 – The Guardian

“A real trip, and more than just another retro ‘folk horror’ to chuck on the pile.” – Little White Lies



“Blanchett’s performance pierces like a conductor’s baton through the heart.” 5/5 – The Guardian

‘ “TÁR” is that rarest of items: a prestige awards contender that’s also a genuine art film.’ 4/4 – Roger Ebert

“TÁR is a masterwork. A gripping, grown-up movie superbly orchestrated by Todd Field and perfectly played by a virtuoso, career-best Cate Blanchett. 158 minutes rarely flies by so quickly.” 5/5 – Empire

“It’s provocative, often uncomfortable but always mesmerising.” 5/5 – Time Out

“They do, it seems, still make them like this.” 5/5 – The Irish Times
