      Katie Walsh Los Angeles Times Anchored by Asensio's fearless and gripping performance, Most Beautiful Island directs an unflinching point of view toward an often invisible population. Aug 24, 2018 Full Review Leslie Felperin Guardian Spanish actor Ana Asensio multitasks as star, writer-director and producer of this arresting feature, a gritty, ominous thriller that's winning awards on the festival and independent film circuit. Rated: 4/5 Dec 1, 2017 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) This profoundly silly exploitation thriller posits the existence of a sinister New York gambling den where gorgeous but penniless immigrants go to die. Rated: 1/5 Dec 1, 2017 Full Review Dax Ebaben Bloody Disgusting Most Beautiful Island not only tests the idea of a traditional horror film, but it exceeds the confines of that definition Rated: 4/5 Aug 26, 2021 Full Review Allen Almachar The MacGuffin Using real locations and shot on Super 16, Asensio captures the excitement and strangeness that is living in New York. Rated: B- Jul 10, 2020 Full Review Elissa Suh MUBI Asensio sequesters us to loitering long-takes in this slowburn thriller that becomes a riveting fable of immigrant struggles.

      Daniel G Underrated thriller movie, low budget but very well shot and directed. Keeps you interested the whole time. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie and a hidden gem of a thriller despite its low budget. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/05/23 Full Review Valerii Ege D One of the hidden golds. I watched this stunning thriller in my room, yet it hit my nerves quickly. The reality and probability of the situation gave me goosebumps. I have seen many horror movies, yet this one gave me the chills. Cuz it is absolutely real. When you enter the thriller, you are as baffled as the main character. A must-watch soul-confiscating movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member It's thriller in low burning style. Ana Asensio is wonderful as the main character. 5/10 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A long slow setup and a final act that finishes just when it feels as though the film is finally getting going. Well acted and it's heart is in the right place but hard work. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member take 13 Tzameti (a great film) and put it in a basement with glass coffins and spiders. How this won SXSW is ???. Not a bad film, but a rip off. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
