Critic Reviews for This Teacher
A strangely provocative film balanced between social parable and psychological horror, Mark Jackson's This Teacher watches a woman having a breakdown in a world that insists on denying its own madness.
This Teacher is both a step forward in representation and a wildly enthralling viewing experience.
It's a film that always seems to know exactly what it's doing, even if Jackson's intent is often baffling to the viewer.
This Teacher is an exceptionally written, slyly funny yet emotionally harrowing film that is carried by Hafsia Herzi's incredible performance.
The setting is as important a character as Hafsia...never threatening or violent enough to be behind enemy lines, but definitely [different enough] to feel isolating.
Herzi commands attention in the central role - her performance offers a similar potency to Helena Howard in Madeline's Madeline - as her character experiences something lurking on the knife-edge between divine revelation and mental breakdown.
