      Mary J A dark, surreal fantasy movie. Interesting premise, great acting, gorgeously shot. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/21/23 Full Review Alex G Not a particularly exciting film with some good bits. You follow the main character who opens the film in a sad life being bullied by a bad man, there's a power cut and main character runs downstairs, into the breaker board, then climbs into an oven, which drops her into the sea. This bit was quite cool, because now we're on an island with some sort of quirky 1940esque sirens who are luring men to their deaths in storms or shooting/stabbing them slightly offscreen to presumably save on trouble for the filmmaker. With this it's got quite an exciting and not often done sort of twist but it throws it all away because the film just loves itself too much and assumes it can carry far too much. You've got complicated group dynamics, main character not wanting to murder men, co-protagonist being a bit of a nutter, main character wanting to murder men, female solidarity, female division all loosely tied together in a sort of wandering storyline where tthere's dollops of "does this make sense or do I not understand *the art*" The camera work is pretty good, beautiful, and a lot of the acting from the main characters pretty excellent. Sort of worth a watch if you're doing the ironing and there's not a re-run of Corrie on the tv. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/16/23 Full Review Felipe O A transfixing feminist fever dream that takes the viewer to unexpected places. The setting, direction and performances are all top notch. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Mayday has a promising and interesting start, only to somehow unravel into an almost musical about a war between boys and girls. Not really sure what deep truth they were trying to communicate, because the film definitely isn't fun. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member The dancing with the men and the chics in the water was super stupid. Makde the movie super stupid.. did someone just want to try and make it a partial musical? Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Terrible acting. I thought it was going to turn into a porn movie during certain scenes. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Roxana Hadadi Polygon Filmmaker Karen Cinorre's initially provocative vision of misandrist vengeance at least makes Mayday worth a look. Oct 9, 2021 Full Review Christy Lemire FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) It's an interesting cast and it's a beautiful film. Kind of falls apart by the end, but I liked it for a while. Oct 5, 2021 Full Review Tomris Laffly RogerEbert.com Despite a strong ensemble of actors and some impressive photography, Mayday drowns inside its own overambitions. Rated: 2/4 Oct 1, 2021 Full Review Lindsey Romain Nerdist Despite a clunky final act that over-explains in a way that ultimately just confuses its theme of female empowerment and revenge, Mayday really makes an impression. Rated: 2.5/5 Feb 14, 2024 Full Review Bill Bria Vague Visages What helps make Mayday a riveting experience rather than an obnoxious experimental exercise is the cast and crew Cinorre puts together. Jun 7, 2023 Full Review Alessandra Rangel InSession Film The movie offers two prominent points of view, and some clever musings about being a woman in today’s world, that make it a fun and inspiring entry in the feminist catalog.
