  1. I.Camera's rating of the film Essential Killing

    Vincent Gallo is much more bearable on a mute setting. The old school Skolimowski subverts the tired survival film genre by having his lead be an Afghan militant, though establishing this requires an implausible narrative.The music is appropriately sparse, as is the wintry, hallucinogenic cinematography. Gallo plays Mohammed with the clenched teeth of a maimed wolf, a man living from one borrowed minute to the next.

  3. tinderness's rating of the film Essential Killing

    Jederzeit spürt man die enge Verbundenheit des Regisseurs mit der Welt, die den flüchtenden Gefangenen umgibt: den Wald, den Schnee, das Eis. Wer diese Welt kennt, weiss, dass er verloren ist, so auf sich allein gestellt, so verloren und so verletzlich ohne jede Ressourcen. Ein faszinierend verzweifelter Film!

  6. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Essential Killing

    3.7 stars. Occupies a singular space between intimate verité, contemporary action film and surrealist fable. Is the essential part of life the banal minutiae of chit-chat & ants nests & green shoots pushing through snow; the moral decisions we make moment-to-moment; or just eating and sleeping and staying alive? Gallo gives impressively unself-conscious performance in which you can almost feel his character's pain.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film Essential Killing

    Un époustouflant Vincent Gallo en bête traquée dans un environnement hostile et inconnu, tenaillé par la faim, le froid, la fatigue et la douleur, avec en filigrane le conflit afghan, dans un dramatique récit intemporel et dénonciateur qui culmine dans une puissante et silencieuse scène finale, entre poésie noire et destin inexorable, magnifique centaure mortellement blessé au petit matin... www.cinefiches.com

  11. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Essential Killing

    Seen in the Film Library of Lisbon, Portugal (a wonderful place). When sand and snow look alike, Vincent Gallo loses his points of references and becomes a beast. Try not to be stopped by the argument of the film, it's a metaphorical movie. Highly recommended.

  13. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Essential Killing

    What initially seemed to be an interesting antithesis to American Sniper, the movie dwindled down to yet another strike-a-poser plop starring Gallo. Not even because he didn't have lines to blurt was this movie passable. Nice shots though.

  16. paul oram's rating of the film Essential Killing

    Harsh. Raw. Yet asks no questions and offers no reasons - commentary enough.

  17. jan pieter's rating of the film Essential Killing

    Als je zin hebt om langdurig naar een hijgende man te staren die met zijn laatste krachten bessen en boomschors opeet dan is deze film echt een aanrader! Belachelijke clichématig beeld van een taliban-strijder die mensen door het hoofd schiet afgewisseld met flashbacks van religieuze propaganda. Bedankt voor het bevestigen van mijn bekrompen wereldbeeld!

  18. El Biffo's rating of the film Essential Killing

    Vincent Gallo as a Taliban! How perfect. A totally unique and creative film.

  20. Vi's rating of the film Essential Killing

    Total packend. Die Geschichte ist trauriger als man das wahrhaben möchte, aber so zu filmen ist eine Meisterleistung.

  21. Lennaart van Oldenborgh's rating of the film Essential Killing

    Promising start but loses its way about half way through. Problem with the premise: once our Taliban fighter shakes of his American pursuers, where can the plot go? Only to a lame, pseudo-symbolic ending apparently. Nice camera work though.

  22. Askal B.'s rating of the film Essential Killing

    Schöne Aufnahmen - bin ja auch gern mal ein Freund von stillen Filmen, aber hier mutiert die Stille zur gähnenden Leere. Eher nicht so essential.
