  1. Nuno Lopes's rating of the film The Untamed

  2. Emma Ikikeiram's rating of the film The Untamed

    A pleasing mix between Von Trier, Van den Berghe and ofcourse Żuławski.

  3. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film The Untamed

    The fact that Escalante went back to shoot an average flat movie is already a news. At least it's not a collection of silly shockers to make this generation's critics, who seem to have never seen a movie until the day before, scream and shout in their chairs at any festival.

  4. Max Seqgar's rating of the film The Untamed

    There's something about them tentacles of yours...

  5. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film The Untamed

    Good but uneven movie. The domestic side that deals with sexuality, homophobia and misogyny works well throughout but when coupled with the "alien" things become quite nonsensical. It feels like a riff on Possession and Under The Skin without reaching any sort of clarity really. More like adding weirdness just for the sake of weird. Still a singular experience about repressed desires, sex and death.

  6. Kamran's rating of the film The Untamed

    Relationship drama grounds a parallel narrative of supernatural and spiritual exploration. Neither of these two channels are developed fully, however. 77/100 - Very Good. (3.5)

  8. J0NS's rating of the film The Untamed

  9. Egoisms's rating of the film The Untamed

    Difficult and initially unsatisfying, I haven't stopped thinking about since I saw it 2 weeks ago. A complex exploration of the dark side of sexual desire. The film's biggest credit is that its disturbing central metaphor, and the main draw of the film, plays second fiddle to the subtle, penetrating, brilliantly acted domestic dramas. It's almost a more metaphysical, bleaker, deadpan "A Serious Man". It's brilliant.

  10. redux's rating of the film The Untamed

    The slimy creature from 'Possession' is now fucking Mexicans in a backwood hut. Not a wise career move.

  12. Alex's rating of the film The Untamed

  13. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Untamed

    Possession + Japanese hentai (tentacular erotica) + Under the Skin + David Cronenberg. With lots of Mexican spices.The English title is vaguely abominable: they should have kept the original, La Région sauvage. All things considered, The Untamed is an unforgettable cinematic experience.

  14. Aldo's rating of the film The Untamed

  15. Nick Schwab's rating of the film The Untamed

    Despite the bold sex scenes, The Untamed occupies the same place as Under the Skin, another film that fails to arouse emotionally, and felt rather apathetic in its storytelling. As here, the dual storylines don't properly blossom or grip, nor do they compliment each other. Both films also should have used traditional storytelling techniques since their looseness renders them a fruitless attempt at intelligence.

  16. FISCHER's rating of the film The Untamed

    Au-delà de l'énoncé primaire et symbolique du scénario qui évoque et convoque avec un certain bonheur reptilien la suffocation dévorante du désir, l'œuvre s'englue et se dissipe dans des additifs surnuméraires, souvent bouffonnes de l'intrigue, pour faire du remplissage et des inutilités en pagaille pour notre plus grinçant désappointement. www.cinefiches.com

  17. Jason's rating of the film The Untamed

    There are kind of two movies going on here, neither fully fleshed-out, their coupling never quite solidified. THE UNTAMED never convinced me it needs to exist. I was very impressed w/ some aesthetic choices (and the phenomenal sound design). The closing credit 'in memoriam' shout-out to Żuławski makes sense; the movie cribs from POSSESSION. And everything that is impressive, clearly owes something to Carlos Reygadas.

  18. Mario Tomchev's rating of the film The Untamed

    Feels like the most sexual film of all time, and it's actually not a Possession homage or an inspiration -- it's a fucking FOLLOW-UP! Bravo, Amat.

  20. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film The Untamed

  21. Dada Kubin's rating of the film The Untamed

    A realist drama with alien tentacle eroticism. Reminded me of the films of Reygadas, and at some points even von Trier’s “Antichrist”. In essence it tells about uncontrollable sexual desires and the search for the ultimate physical pleasure even if it can destroy you or your family. This dark side of humanity comes in form of an alien, to highlight perhaps how alien our biological desires feel to our conscious self.

  22. Alcock Hitchfred's rating of the film The Untamed

    An amazing and inspiring cinematic experience, paying homage to Zulawski and Possesion. This is what I go to the movies for. Absolutely fantastic allegorical film.
