    This is not always a subtle film, but its spooky mood leaves a strong impression.

    Los Angeles Times
    July 28, 2016

    This is a director's showcase and Corbet, with the support of a superb tech team (especially composer Scott Walker) impresses and fascinates.

    New York Observer
    July 28, 2016

    The Childhood of a Leader is a dark and creepy work, flawed but ambitious and well worth seeing.

    AV Club
    July 22, 2016

    Studious in its homages to somber masters past and present, The Childhood Of A Leader pulls out intriguing moments whenever it threatens to turn repetitious.

    Village Voice
    July 22, 2016

    All dread all the time, and rich enough in mood that you may be inclined to forgive the familiarity of its narrative trajectory and anchoring psychology.
    July 22, 2016

    That it has the courage of cryptic-ness, and leaves sympathetic viewers intrigued long after its final images have faded, is enough to mark The Childhood of a Leader as an uncommonly promising debut.

    Concrete Playground

    Demands that kind of close attention, and rewards it as well.

    The Sunday Age
    May 09, 2017

    Sudden lens strobe and Scott Walker's sawing score connect the character to the tumult of 20th century Europe, suggesting the child is its destructive heir, and the film climaxes with a remarkable final sequence

    The Australian
    March 17, 2017

    The problem with the film is that it promises more than it delivers.

    FILMINK (Australia)
    January 30, 2017

    ...this is an odd, slow moving and only partly successful film.

    Film Ireland Magazine
    December 14, 2016

    Corbet draws an incredible performance out of young debutant Tom Sweet. This is not a one-dimensional or one-note depiction of a misbehaving child but rather a tremendously nuanced turn.

    Times (UK)
    October 10, 2016

    The Childhood of a Leader signals a fascinating new talent in art cinema: the actor Brady Corbet.
