Critic Reviews of "The Congress"New YorkerSeptember 05, 2014
The anger drains out of the picture, and we watch in a state of passive appreciation and indifference.New York TimesSeptember 04, 2014
An acquired taste, this dense Jabberwocky-ish word salad is a political allegory about a populace that's been pharmaceutically duped into believing its wretched world is wonderful.Boston GlobeSeptember 04, 2014
A half-live-action, half-animated headtrip that throws Robin Wright into a dizzying showbiz paradigm shift.New York PostSeptember 03, 2014
A dystopian blend of live-action and animation that acidly comments on some of Hollywood's touchiest issues before drifting off into an existential fog.New York Daily NewsSeptember 03, 2014
It's almost painful to watch the immense promise of "The Congress," Ari Folman's spectacularly ambitious experiment, dissipate into nothing.Time OutSeptember 02, 2014
It's like Folman took several different genres-Hollywood satire, speculative dystopian fiction, family melodrama-and fused them into something amorphous and nebulous.Flicks.co.nzMarch 10, 2017
It flits between hallucinatory animation and 'reality', giving small moments of relief and attempting to anchor the story in a desolate Los Angeles.TheShiznit.co.ukJuly 11, 2016
Ari Folman's follow up to the impressive Waltz With Bashir is bold, daringly different and visually arresting, but it's also a bit too much.The Sunday AgeDecember 10, 2014
Folman makes one phantasmagorical leap after another, adding a live-action coda, but the visual freedom doesn't expand the story, it abandons it.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsDecember 10, 2014
Weird sci-fi film that mixes together animation with live action.
