PRESS QUOTES

 

"One of the year's most hypnotic and fascinating films." —Village Voice

 

"Akerman's formal control is, as always, astounding." —Time Out

 

"Akerman’s control of the expressive elements, particularly the performances, which are at once subdued and theatrical, and the choreography of the long takes, in which actors move through the encroaching jungle, are exceptional." —Artforum

 

"Fervently passionate and formally meticulous, the latest stunning coup for a director who's made a career of repurposing archetypal storylines." —Slant Magazine

 

"Thrilling... ALMAYER'S FOLLY is lush and dreamy (if not quite dreamlike), but it never feels unanchored or given to pointless meandering." —L.A. Weekly

 

"A work of engulfing jungles and rivers, vehement and incantatory speeches, and piercing female gazes in front of and behind the camera." —The House Next Door
