More Info:
  • Eric D. Snider

    Here is a pitch-black psycho-horror-comedy to restore one’s faith in the “What the eff did I just watch?” genre. Full Review
  • Daniel Fienberg

    Perhaps a little more successful when winking at genre expectations than when playing things straight, The Voices is funny, disturbing and whimsical.

  • James Rocchi

    It’s a bit of an irony that The Voices doesn’t have much to say, but the fact of the matter is that it’s the tone and the tenor of the film that make it most watchable; a truly hilarious film about truly horrible things, the real artistry in Satrapi’s direction of The Voices speaks for itself.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Boyd van Hoeij

    The film’s combination of psychological drama -- cue the childhood trauma -- with blood-splattered limb-cutting, talking heads in the fridge and talking pets on the couch is a risky one that finally works because Perry and Satrapi find the right tonal mixture for the material.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Xan Brooks

    Satrapi's disreputable little creepshow finally doesn't amount to a hill of beans. Maybe that's fine. The Voices provides an enjoyably trashy antidote to the traditional Sundance fare of soulful drama and crusading documentary.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    In tapping Satrapi to interpret this project, the producers have done about as well as one could expect with such material. Still, a bit more consistency in style would have gone a long way.

    Variety Full Review
  • Chuck Bowen

    For most of the film's running time, one mistakes the main character's callousness for the filmmakers'.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    The Voices is a deeply warped, darkly funny and thoroughly depraved horror comedy... and whether you find this sort of thing walk-out-of-the-theater distasteful or wickedly subversive, I’m fairly confident we won’t see another movie like it for quite some time.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Ben Nicholson

    Not only is The Voices uproariously funny throughout, but it's actually far cleverer than one might expect.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Brad Wheeler

    Think of this stylish, quirky and quite grisly feature from Marjane Satrapi as a meeting of "Psycho," "Dexter" and "Dr. Doolittle."

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    I’ve always liked Reynolds for the most part, but he does his best work yet here in Satrapi’s odd, pitch-black comedy about a man who talks to his dog and cat. And they talk back. Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The quirky film is simultaneously bizarre, humorous, disturbing and suspenseful.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Ryan Reynolds is chillingly perfect as a nice-guy factory worker struggling with schizophrenia and murderous impulses in this tonally wild indie, which is nearly too horrifying to be funny — but not quite.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    It’s a tormented Tony Perkins at the Bates Motel, re-imagined by "Saturday Night Live," with all the risks implied.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    It’s a ready-made cult movie, complicated and weird and grotesque and distinctly silly, and best when not taken remotely seriously.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    The Voices is a perfect film that's hard to watch.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    For all its flashes of ingenuity, The Voices is secretly more scared than scary, lacking the truly disturbing ambition to get real.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    Directed by cartoonist-turned-filmmaker Marjane Satrapi (‘Persepolis’), ‘The Voices’ steamrolls over boundaries between genres and giddily ignores the limits of good taste.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    Full-force performance form Ryan Reynolds but not as funny as it hopes it is.

    Empire Full Review
  • Kevin Harley

    Reynolds moves on from Green Lantern in Satrapi’s psycho-romp, pitched awkwardly between funny-haha and funny-peculiar, but blessed with enough style and smarts to merit a look.

    Total Film Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Satrapi makes some bad calls in her attempts to balance bleak humor with bleaker thrills, including ending the film on a glibly cheerful note. Her best decision, bar none, was entrusting such heavy material to the guy who played Van Wilder. Behind that perpetual smirk lurks a talent for quiet depravity. Bonkers looks good on him.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    This film really doesn’t know what to do with itself, except to show us the difference between Jerry’s happy world and his dark world as if it’s some kind of revelation; it’s the one move the film has, and it does it over and over again.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    The big question here is why any of The Voices, as crisply made and stylish as it is, should matter or entertain. The cold truth is that it doesn't.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Grisly but not especially suspenseful, tongue-in-cheek without any real wit, The Voices aims to hit the intersection of horror and comedy but tumbles into an uncanny valley of tedious creepiness.
