Village Voice
Can a film that holds no surprises be of value? In the case of Our Children, which masterfully plays with stylistic conventions and all-too-common instances of real-life matricide, the answer is decidedly yes. Full Review
Andrew Schenker
Slant Magazine
It's occasionally too icily removed, but it compensates through its perpetual concern with understanding its characters and their untenable situations. Full Review
Anthony Lane
The New Yorker
There is no whodunit here — the horror is plain in the opening shots — and the how is presented with great restraint, but the why remains veiled and mysterious long after the film has ended. Full Review

Arizona Republic
This is a film as powerful as it is painful. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
It’s a near-perfect portrait of a domestic tragedy as a master-and-servant psychodrama, one that leaves catastrophic collateral damage in its wake. Full Review
