      Ryan Gilbey New Statesman The performances are thrillingly uninhibited; don't be surprised if the careers of several future stars are traced back to this film. May 25, 2017 Full Review Simran Hans Observer (UK) I don't see real teens buying this. Rated: 2/5 May 21, 2017 Full Review Philip Kemp Sight & Sound Channelling elements of Gregg Araki, Gaspar No and Harmony Korine, Taylor submerges all this in a wealth of saturated colour, melancholic poetry, an eclectic music track and vibrant visual effects. May 19, 2017 Full Review Katie Hogan VultureHound Written and directed by Taylor, it may be a difficult story structure for some to follow but once you open your mind to all the possibilities out there, you can quickly find yourself immersed into this otherworldly story. Feb 4, 2020 Full Review Alexa Dalby Dog and Wolf The effect is dreamlike, trippy, a saturation of colour and music, not always explained but eventually with an emotional and joyful resolution. Rated: 3/5 Nov 3, 2018 Full Review Derek Deskins Next Projection Taylor seems bored by his own story and quickly introduces secondary and tertiary characters of diminishing importance to jolt a line that was doing just fine on its own. Rated: 4/10 Oct 16, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member If I could sum it up in in one phrase it would be 'All The Young Pseuds'. It reminded me of when I was art college. I kept getting invited to Theatre Studies parties and everyone at them was relentlessly fake and contrived like the characters in this film. They made everyone on Fine Art like me seem reassuringly real by comparison. I think I've probably done this film a service by aligning it with some potential social actuality. I don't mean to. Watching it is a thoroughly gruelling experience because you're always anticipating some narrative intervention to turn up at any time and interrupt the shallow musing with another register but it never does. All potential for this is ignored. For example the moment when one character recites his poem consisting of two words feebly repeated a few times is ripe for comedy but nope, the script doesn't want to go that way. Anyway I hope the cast and production crew got something to put on their CVs out of this. The film may have been pretty rubbish but they will have gained solid experience from the act of making it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Utter rubbish from start to finish Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Forget about tales they tell you in The Virgin Suicides, Sixteen Candles, Dazed and Confused and the rest of the over-embellished, over-stylised teenage flicks. Yes, we've all been teenagers, and we can all agree than none of the situations, love stories or formulaic relationships are not even remotely close to what is actually feels to come to the age of female adolescence. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a pretty crazy film, it's really unique, it's like no other British film I've seen! It really spends proper time with the characters, who are mostly young teenagers, and actually listens to them, rather than telling them what they should be like. There are some interesting plot structures which are challenging to follow but mostly I loved it for the overall energy. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A singular vision from a talented first time director, Spaceship is weird and kind of wonderful. A unique tone, expressive visuals and a knockout emotional finale keep things moving when the film threatens to meander into eternity.
