Exhibition is challenging, sensual, brilliant film-making.
91
Exhibition infuses its cerebral exposition with a strong dose of humanity.
80
Hogg’s films are never conventional stories, but this is a rewarding and affecting watch.
80
Beautifully shot with an acute eye for crisp composition, this intimate mood piece explores the subtle intricacies and low-level power struggles of long-term love in forensic detail.
80
Hogg withholds the specifics, and lets you decode things for yourself. Her camera rarely moves, but every shot is composed with total artistry, building to a final image that’s somehow both joyful and devastating.
80
Exhibition succeeds in making us feel deeply uncomfortable for peering into other people’s lives.
80
Hogg humanises the set-up with ripples of warmth, but it’s her evocation of a horror-style psychodrama through hints of domestic disquiet that lingers with you.
70
With acute sensitivity, Brit writer-helmer Joanna Hogg’s third feature, Exhibition, explores the difficulty of telling inside from outside, intimacy from estrangement, and revelation from concealment.
50
There is beauty here, and exquisite craft in both the pictures and the minutely designed soundscape, and there are some truly chewy ideas thrown up about the porosity of the boundary between public and private that would have lent terrific, atmospheric texture to a film... But there is little connection to the characters.
30
Village Voice
A film that's all airy, abstract pretentiousness.
