Critics reviews

One reason why Barbarians is such a successful provocation is that it makes engaging with history seem pressing and vital. The film is funny, sexy, and vibrant; one might get wrapped up in Jude’s strident direction if it weren’t for the force of his rhetoric.

Jude’s extraordinary opus can be overly didactic and unapologetically intellectual at times, but it is also startling —a provocative, sarcastic, and momentous act of interrogation between the past and the present that escalates to an impasse, with the hands of each locked around the neck of the other.
