Atom User Reviews for Monos
This is a movie I’ve grown to admire more than I enjoy. Landes’ and Wolf’s imagery is stunning to watch at even if his script with Dos Santos leaves off much of the text.
This is a gripping, sometimes hypnotising film in which notions of good and evil are less clear-cut than the urgent desire to stay alive.
Even in this fictional context, the line between portraying and exploiting abused innocence gets uncomfortably, offensively blurred.
