    • Excerpt: Alex van Warmerdam desbarra sobre los demonios de la culpa de los acomodados con una fábula amenazada por un Coco que viene del suelo. Una sorpresita puñetera y esforzadamente sarnosa.
  • Joshua Brunsting @ The CriterionCast
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Writer/director Alex van Warmerdam’s (“Grimm”) latest parable is dark, tense and often funny, playing like a mashup of “Down and Out in Beverly Hills” and Hanaeke’s “Funny Games,” but just when you think you’ve got a handle on his meaning, events conspire to undermine it.
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: The strange promotional art for ‘Borgman’ is reflective of the peculiar narrative that offers more questions than answers while completely engrossing the viewer in its bizarre story.

  • Jeremy Kibler @ Diabolique Magazine
    • Excerpt: It is something when a film makes two of 2014’s arguably best films—Under the Skin and Enemy—seem accessible by comparison, but this horror-tinged whatchamacallit truly is uncompromising, unsettling, cryptic, elegantly shot and, frankly, quite weird.
  • Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
  • Glenn Lovell @
    • Excerpt: Defies categorization — part satanic thriller, part social satire. Characters glide through narrative as if in Caligari-induced haze.
