Press Quotes

An intense and, for the first hour, sickeningly violent film that unexpectedly segues into a moving psychological study.

     —Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

There's a real tenderness to the two performances, particularly that of Jeong-jin Lee... And the disturbing, vaguely Oedipal relationship at the core is a fascinating one...

     —Oliver Lyttelton, IndieWire
