Time Out New York
If Bastards is cold, it’s never clinical; rather, it’s a fully engaged, deeply moral movie about people who are neither. Full Review
David Rooney
The Hollywood Reporter
A stylishly made but unyielding drama. Full Review
Eric Kohn
Bogged down by flashbacks and flash forwards, The Bastards pointlessly mixes up its ingredients, creating a distancing effect from the tangible sadness at its core. The result is the rare case of a movie that confirms its maker's skill while wasting it on useless ambition. Full Review
Jesse Cataldo
Slant Magazine
Conditioning the audience to find dread in every seemingly innocent gesture, the film turns even the simplest touch between family members into something tinged with menace. Full Review
Jessica Kiang
The Playlist
The Bastards feels like what happens when an undeniably great filmmaker stoops to sensationalism -- it’s a smarter, odder film than someone else would make with the same material, but it’s still smart, odd sensationalism. Full Review
