Reviews

Variety - Joe Leydon
Gutto demonstrates welcome restraint and a meticulous avoidance of anything that resembles exploitation, relying on indirect yet impactful allusions to keep us constantly aware of the mortal stakes involved. All in all, this is a singularly promising debut for a first-time feature filmmaker.

Screen Daily - Tim Grierson
Juliette Binoche may play a seasoned truck driver with a firm grip on the wheel, but Paradise Highway proves to be an unsteady ride, guided by intriguing ideas but hampered by generic tendencies.
42
The A.V. Club - Luke Y. Thompson
As intriguing as the combination of Binoche and Grillo might sound, it would be much more impactful if they shared the screen for more than a handful of scenes. As such, the movie begins with a bang, but it ends with a whimper.

The New York Times - Concepción de León
If only the film had taken a broader view, filling in more details about the lives and motivations of the truck drivers as well as the sex traffickers.

RogerEbert.com - Robert Daniels
If you squint you can nearly see the kind of movie Gutto might be aiming for.
