Critics

“An experience at once jagged and lyrical, brutal and beautiful, angry and abstract, scattered and wholly singular.”

Variety

“It is alternately sensuous and scary, thrilling and appalling, with a dark heart of horror at its core.”

Mark Kermode, Observer

“Monos is one of the year's most extraordinary films. Its feverish visuals rupture any sense of surface realism, creating a disarming, almost surrealist universe where anarchy takes hold.”

Maria M. Delgado, Sight And Sound
