Critics reviews

…A hit-and-run follows, but we don’t see the hit—only the run. This is not only a film of slow reveals, but also one whose more dramatic moments happen off-screen. It’s an internal drama propelled by external events, about the consequences of masking over mistakes: Three Monkeys is a kind of anti-thriller, whose opening shot masterfully sets both the tone and theme for what is to come.
