Critic Reviews of "First Reformed"Houston ChronicleJune 07, 2018
The latest film from pugnacious director/writer Paul Schrader is as austere and revelatory as a church confessional...It's a bleak portrait of a man in the midst of a spiritual breakdown that is only slightly undone by its rather unsatisfying conclusion.Globe and MailJune 01, 2018
Ultimately its sheer archness reveals Paul Schrader as a gifted and deeply persuasive evangelist of the transcendental style - if not quite a canon saint.Detroit NewsJune 01, 2018
"First Reformed" takes some wild, unexpected and uncomfortable turns in its final act that will surely shock some, anger others and disturb just about everyone. For Schrader, it shows that he's still got it. Welcome back.Toronto StarMay 31, 2018
First Reformed deserves all praise.Minneapolis Star TribuneMay 31, 2018
"First Reformed" is a miracle in its own regard, the rare type of film that leaves us with questions left to answer and for many, a desire to dig into it deeper through a second viewing.Dallas Morning NewsMay 31, 2018
This is a movie about faith tested, and people trying to reconcile hope with a world that can feel hopeless. It's a film to be seen in a dark theater with an audience hushed in reverence of the power of cinema.Irish TimesJuly 23, 2018
You won't see a more textured film this summer.Hot PressJuly 23, 2018
Masterful.Spokesman-Review (Washington)July 20, 2018
Schrader wastes the good work of cinematographer Alexander Dynan - whose framing of every scene is flawlessly precise - and by Hawke, who continues to evolve as an actor in independent productions such as this.Sunday Times (UK)July 18, 2018
The film can't quite summon the anguish to go full Taxi Driver - the conclusion balks right at the edge of the abyss - but Schrader's images have never been crisper, and Hawke is transfixing.The Mail on Sunday (UK)July 17, 2018
Bleak...and slightly barking.London Evening StandardJuly 17, 2018
Schrader is the divine mortal who wrote Taxi Driver and Raging Bull. He's as passionate as ever; what he has lost is his discipline.
