Critic Reviews for Feral
With its staggeringly beautiful cinematography of down-and-dirty New York and a layered central performance, Adam Wonder's debut feature is a complex and dynamic look at social outliers and how we find the means to survive.
Feral is a sobering and introspective journey into depression and isolation associated with life in the city, but it also presents a powerful social parable as the secret behind the protagonist's sorrowful predicament is revealed.
Sriram is extraordinary in her role as Yazmine and carries the film on her own. The cinematography and score do a good job of lifting the heavy material, but without the anchoring central performance, Feral could have failed under its own weight.
In stringing together a few moments in time with Yazmine, Feral asks us to take note of the unnoticeable, and the result is a film that honors its character without turning her into an easily digestible message.
Feral, Andrew Wonder's narrative feature directorial debut, tells one woman's story, a story both filled with beautiful imagination and painful reality of her individual journey, one of both attempted progression and constant pushback.
