Critic Reviews

  1. 80
    Increasingly violent (although always distanced), The Outskirts is at once appalling and bleakly humorous.
  2. 75
    The Outskirts, handsomely directed by Petr Lutsik, will grab people's emotions. The dark and bitter comedy deals with a corrupt, post-communist Russia.
  3. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    Lutsik takes aim at reckless capitalism --- as well as the increasing Westernization of Russian filmmaking --- with a disquieting allegory that in both themes and aesthetic is an audacious throwback to pre-WWII Soviet cinema formalism.
  4. 60
    A strange, disturbing and yet occasionally quite funny cultural artifact from the new Russia.
  5. Grim, phantasmagoric view of recent and not-so-recent Russian history.
