I really enjoyed trying to puzzle through this and I was very impressed by the tonal balance that Mati Diop pulls off here.
[It] deftly melds fantasy and romance in a complex portrait of migration.
[Atlantics] can occasionally feel stretched and thin in certain spots, like a cracking medium-length film padded out to feature runtime. Still, that's no matter, because the film's real coup is the victory it scores for greater perspective.
[Diop] has woven all these concerns and more into a bewitching and masterful film unlike any you've ever seen.
Yet the film is so convinced of its seriousness and artistic prowess (gorgeous, long and inherently disturbing shots of the ocean abound) that it becomes mildly, and pleasingly, intoxicating.
