Jessica Kiang Variety This fallen "Idol" takes an early tumble and spends the rest of an unnecessary 144 minutes getting hopelessly tangled in the safety net. Apr 19, 2019 Full Review Deborah Young Hollywood Reporter With so much narrative uncertainty, there's no one to root for or to care about, making the confused climax an exercise in frustration. Feb 14, 2019 Full Review James Mudge easternKicks.com Idol falls into the category of being a fascinating car crash of a film, for the brave, curious and infinitely patient at least Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 21, 2020 Full Review Anton Bitel Projected Figures beautifully shot, but also bleak and brutal, unleashing an iconoclastic onslaught of grief, corruption and revenge. Nov 10, 2019 Full Review Jared Mobarak The Film Stage Everything transpiring is outrageous only in its visceral execution since it all makes complete psychological sense in the bigger picture of their doomed, shared experience. Rated: B Jul 30, 2019 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film Despite its shortcomings, this is a film with quite a bit to recommend it, and it's an interesting curiosity for noir fans.
