More Info:
  • Amy Nicholson

    Gebbe never asks us to believe in Tore's god, but she asks us to honor his beliefs. She's found an incredible conduit in Feldmeier.

    For the most part, though, Nothing Bad manages to hold a tight grip, evocative as it is of Lars von Trier’s similarly unflinching "Dogville" and equally bound to start some conversations among those willing to stomach it.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephen Dalton

    Gebbe has made a robust and compelling first feature, deftly shot and ably acted, especially by its younger cast members.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    Pitting good against evil with striking intelligence and a near-operatic commitment to extreme suffering, Ms. Gebbe neither mocks nor celebrates Tore’s love for his God. Neither does she give any hint that it’s reciprocated.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    his bleak and somewhat sadistic picture is the type of movie that unfolds like a slow car wreck. You know something bad is going to happen, you just aren’t sure what, or how, and when it eventually happens it is repulsive and yet you still can’t turn away. Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    Pure evil meets unshakable faith in Katrin Gebbe's torturous Nothing Bad Can Happen, a film that begins as a meditation on human behavior and belief but crosses the line into pure sadism. Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Writer-director Katrin Gebbe rubs viewers’ faces in this dog dish of a film, with the promise that some sliver of transcendence will redeem it. But it’s all dog dish.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Skillfully made first feature by writer-director Katrin Gebbe has some undeniably striking passages and performances, but ultimately spirals toward a gruesome third act that is no less monotonous for supposedly being based on true events.

    Variety Full Review
  • Martin Tsai

    The method to Von Trier's madness is that he provokes thought alongside outrage in his parables. Here, Gebbe musters only outrage, as her antagonists are without nuance, mercy or any redeeming quality.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Clayton Dillard

    A film so comprehensively miscalculated in its desire to be a batshit think piece that it potentially creates a new category of offense.
