Critic Reviews for Thelma
All Critics (34) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (30) | Rotten (4)
[Thelma] links supernatural horror to repressed memories, raging hormones, and fundamentalist zealotry, crafting a sexy and unsettling brain-teaser.
A beautifully modulated thriller, and it comes with a message that feels valuable-it’s not homosexuality that will bring about the devil but its repression.
At times a tad too subtle, “Thelma” is nonetheless an unnervingly effective slow-burn, and those with the patience for Trier’s patient accumulation of detail will find it pays off in unexpected ways.
… Thelma’s story sticks to your bones like a shiver, and sinks deeper for days after the credits have rolled.
As in his previous films, Trier remains sensitively attuned to the emotional wavelengths of young characters; as a queer campus love story, this at least has the right temperament.
A stylish, distinctively Scandinavian take on familiar horror themes.
