      Alexandra Heller-Nicholas AWFJ.org Christopher Murray’s Sorcery is a dark, enthralling coming-of-age tale of witchcraft, colonialism and self-discovery. Jun 9, 2023 Full Review Leila Latif Sight & Sound Though on the surface a tale of vengeance, Christopher Murray’s film sees revenge as a small part of a far greater, more interesting story of an island girl’s self-discovery. Mar 15, 2023 Full Review Robert Daniels RogerEbert.com While “Sorcery” is certainly elegantly shot—capturing the rugged and pastoral textures of this island—it often turns to an opaqueness that doesn’t engender mystery but a frustrating evasiveness that causes the proceedings to drag. Jan 26, 2023 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall It's grippingly directed by Christopher Murray and played in an often unnervingly understated style. So it goes far beneath the skin to provoke us with insistent ideas about colonialism and nature. Rated: 4/5 Oct 24, 2023 Full Review Stephen A. Russell Flicks (AU, NZ, UK) Seething with righteous fury burning bright below its meditative pace, it casts a ferociously powerful spell. Aug 21, 2023 Full Review Alejandro Alemán El Universal The great merit of the film is that despite its leisurely pace and focus of the story, it knows how to capture the audience's attention to never let it go.
