Critic Reviews of "My Pure Land"Hollywood ReporterNovember 04, 2017
As a rousing rebuke to patriarchal power, Masud's assured debut mostly hits the target, even if the overall package feels clumsy and simplistic in places.CineVueDecember 27, 2017
In My Pure Land, the lead roles aren't just "strong female characters": these are actual women who have fought real-life battles - and won.Daily Express (UK)September 17, 2017
It looks like Masud is going to be one hell of a player.Observer (UK)September 17, 2017
The action scenes are awkwardly choreographed and difficult to follow, further hindered by frequent flashbacks that interrupt the pace of the film.Little White LiesSeptember 15, 2017
Most striking ... is the way Masud portrays strong independent women overcoming their struggles in this patriarchal society.GuardianSeptember 15, 2017
A clean blend of arthouse mannerisms and action-movie suspense ...Daily Mail (UK)September 14, 2017
The film lurches back and forward in time, but both as a narrative and as an insight into another culture it is never less than engrossing.Times (UK)September 14, 2017
It's lyrical, heart-poundingly tense and strikingly feminist.Flick FilosopherSeptember 14, 2017
Behold a modern-day feminist western set in deeply patriarchal Pakistan. Stark and spare, with a heroine full of mean grace, it's even a true story.HeyUGuysSeptember 13, 2017
Masud's style is refreshingly rugged yet extrapolates scraps of beauty from the incredible acting and impecunious settings.Independent (UK)September 13, 2017
The tempo here is different to that of the westerns that clearly inspired the director. The film is reflective and lyrical.Total FilmSeptember 11, 2017
Despite pacing issues, this is a captivating true story with important implications.
