75
New York Post
A disturbing and daring thriller with an exceptional performance by 13-year-old Laurien Van den Broeck.
70
Laurien van den Broeck's masterful unblinking performance transcends the uneasy all-English dialogue.
67
Portland Oregonian
This gritty take on Grimm's suffers from mannered supporting performances and an inconsistent level of realism.
63
New York Daily News
A wild dream that spins into a nightmare, Moonlight isn't quite as provocative as it aims to be. But it will stick in your mind, and may even disturb your sleep.
60
The New York Times
Though rife with topics and images American audiences may find offensive, Moonlight addresses them fearlessly and with some artistry.
40
Variety
Menacing atmosphere created by Dutch helmer Paula van der Oest ("Zus & Zo") does not make up for the weak script's multiple improbabilities, flat dialogue or the discomfort of watching children, the handicapped and even animals being abused onscreen.
40
Not only is the candid (but never prurient) treatment of early-teen sexuality and drug use too hot to handle, but the narrative blend of fairy-tale wonder and nightmare logic feels sui generis.
