Reviews:
3 stars out of 4 -- "More than anything, the movie plays as a personal, poetic look back at a century where history, cinema, psychology and politics intersected in ways that we are still trying to parse." - 07/22/2016 RogerEbert.com


"Scott Walker’s score for THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER is a work of dark, twisted genius, skin-crawling and bombastic in equal measure..." - 07/21/2016 A.V. Club


"Family and fascism march in lock step in THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER....A visually sumptuous, slow-boil freakout set in France in the aftermath of World War I..." - 07/21/2016 New York Times


"[A] chilly -- and chilling -- political thriller by way of a provocative domestic chamber piece. Strikingly mounted, lighted, shot and scored, this tense, decidedly arty film marks a bravura feature directing debut for young American actor Brady Corbet." - 07/28/2016 Los Angeles Times
