[An] elegantly structured tease...

August 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Furriel's intensely distressed rendition, fueled by his character's disbelief at how the system appears to never be in his favor, imparts complex poignancy into this moderately distinctive psychological thriller.

July 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Disturbing in the best sense of the word, though sometimes let down by attention to detail, The Son deserves at the least to be adopted by horror fests.

May 29, 2019 | Full Review…

The allegories used in The Son (El Hijo) aren't rooted enough. Most of them are too on the face or forced. Others are completely overshadowed by trying to fit into a conventional structure.

September 24, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A vague entry into the 'paranoia genre'. A fantastic actor misused in a lame script that doesn't dare to do much for its story. [Full review in Spanish].

August 21, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Riveting thriller with less violence than most; sex, nudity.
