  1. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Hyenas

    A film that gets sadder and wiser the more you reflect upon it. Proverbial reality. "There is a question about the relation of people's morality and institutions, what they hold sacred, in relationship to practical circumstances [...] the very material foundations and conceptions on which their morality and their institutions and their rituals and their social formulas were based in the first place." (Ralph Dumain)

  2. smndvdcl's rating of the film Hyenas

    One of the most powerful cinematic arcs against the pernicious effects of capitalism. Third World Cinema questioning the heart of Western culture in relation to the erosion of the soul through the material addiction to greed.

  3. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Hyenas

  4. Aaken's rating of the film Hyenas

    Shot in Senegal, the film is a raw and captivating interpretation of Dürrenmatt's play 'das Besuch der alten Dame'.

  5. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Hyenas

    "Hyenas" inicia como una comedia y termina como un drama a la reflexión. Inicia con un protagonista con laguna mental y finaliza con el mismo dueño de una sabiduría. Diop crea la historia de un desencuentro, una venganza y la madurez que llega de la forma más hostil. Los mejores momentos de la película son cuando la paranoia azotan a un amenazado de muerte. Es además su final: el personaje que se reconcilia e inmola.

  9. Kelley Dong's rating of the film Hyenas

    the scene inside the church is so atmospherically overwhelming. to me this is djibril diop mambety's fullest work in terms of technique, and his most powerful work in its message.

  10. not reconciled's rating of the film Hyenas

    life made me a whore, and now I'll make the world a brothel

  11. Ana Pinheiro's rating of the film Hyenas

    spectacular! i thought the final scene between ramatou and draman looked just like the last scene with camille and paul in godard's contempt.
