  1. Sefer Taslı Sapık's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

  2. Mateo Ibarra's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    Decker's proposal it's experimental but not overwhelming, thoroughly original both formally and thematically, showcasing the power of performance, identity, trauma and how much of your private life do you feel like sharing through art.

  7. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    2.9 stars. A hard film to sit with, though maybe productively so for neurotypicals who don't live in the regular with that kind of sensory overload. Madeline's brain reminded me of my own when younger and very, very much my ex-partner's, which wasn't something that increased my sense of comfort. Also, notably, a film that reminds me while I can't cope with America and will never ever go there again.

  8. Appskosam's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    i will never see any film directed by a women. And its final.

  9. generallaurodelvillar's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    FUCKING HELL THIS MOVIE HAS PULSE FOR IT SELF, ITS ALIVE AND EVERYBODY NEEDS TO SEE THIS PIECE OF MEAT.

  10. Ted Eames's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    A mixed bag of a film. The cinematography is stylish and distinctive, but lapses too often into busy close-ups and moody vagueness. The lines between performance and "real life" are blurred so successfully that we are left wondering: "well, so what?" Caprice seems to take the place of desire and the whole thing is po-faced and humourless. A triumph of style over substance. Helena Howard's performance desrves better.

  11. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    Teenage Madeline has to navigate between a domineering mother and an over enthusiastic drama teacher who is potentially exploiting her vulnerable condition in this claustrophobic and raw drama. One of the best depictions of mental illness I have seen in a film.

  12. I.Camera's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    Performative cinema that blurs boundaries to the point of synaesthesia, Madeline's Madeline is one of the more inventive films of 2018, relying on bold and intuitive (improvised?) performances from its leads. Relying on shallow focus close ups to great effect, the plot emanates outwards from Madeline's insular life and unspecified mental condition. Decker comes from the mumblecore field, but this is something else.

  13. Johannes Black's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    Two troubled lives cross, part and collide in the cinematic dance of mother and daughter in Madeline’s Madeline – dependent on whether you stress the ‘e’ or ‘i’, its phonetics prompt a duality of the same name. Even if we are presented with a lot, we glimpse very little. One mind swallows the other, only to find itself swallowed up. Rhapsodic, lyrical, with moments of theatrical craft, this is one of the year’s best.

  14. Kaonashiii's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    'experimental theatre troupe'... has nothing been learnt from Out 1?!

  15. Adam Laurence Pitt's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

  16. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

  17. Tyler's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    Surely there are problems with this film, but I wanted to live inside of it forever. Put me in the body of any of the characters on screen and let me feel that forever. Bliss.

  18. Charlie Douglas-Hamilton's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    A brilliantly childish sensibility gives an airiness to weighty topics of identity, control and performance as exorcism. A fantastic central performance ties together these expressionistic threads. The cinematography and the editing play with each other to create these disorienting and emotive sequences. There are some flaws, but the film's heart carries it above them.

  19. SMCC100's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    Bonkers - sometimes in a good way, sometimes not.

  20. Frank Yonco's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    Didn’t do it for me unfortunately. But some nice flourishes nonetheless. Good performances though across the board.

  21. keithinhull's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

  22. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    It's horrible, it drags (I've seen 180-minute epics that felt briefer than this), and it doesn't manage to make any interesting comments on the central relationships. A huge missed opportunity. But, hey, at least you get enough moments of actors pretending that they're animals. Can you even call yourself a thespian if you haven't convinced people you were a cat for five minutes?

  23. Andrew Lang's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    This is superb. Josephine Decker has thrown a whole lot of really interesting stuff together and just let it collide in beautiful chaos: Jung, schizophrenia, method acting, race, parent-child relationships. It's an unconventional film and I loved it for its messy daring.

  24. Alice's rating of the film Madeline's Madeline

    Confusing, intriguing, always on hold... The movie digs into everybody's inner sides and challenges the spectators. Amazing photography, absolutely magnificent soundtrack, Helena Howard scaringly impressive!
