Reviews


80
The Guardian - Lanre Bakare
Anyone who has pushed things a bit too far, and woken up with one too many “wtf” mornings, will appreciate how close Belgica has got to replicating hedonism going off the rails.
70
The Hollywood Reporter - Todd McCarthy
Its fleeting intoxications momentarily provide suggestions—and, for some, memories—of how the highest highs can sometimes make the drudgery of the rest of life worth it.
70
Screen International - Graham Fuller
Van Groeningen conveys kinetically the combined power of a ferocious beat, copious drugs, and sexual energy to endow revellers with transient communal utopianism.
70
Variety - Peter Debruge
Big-picture cliches aside, this truth-blurring but thoroughly convincing portrait makes its case via the details.
50
The Film Stage - Daniel Schindel
Taking a straightforward approach isn’t necessarily a negative, but the sedate camerawork and editing make the movie’s progression staid. Even the musical moments are invigorating due to the music itself, and not by how it’s presented.
