Critic Reviews of "The Forbidden Room"Los Angeles TimesFebruary 18, 2016
What Maddin & Co. have invented here ranges from Freudian horror to childish naughtiness.Chicago ReaderDecember 03, 2015
Guy Maddin delivers another of his wild and whimsical fantasies, tinged with camp and couched in the film grammar of silent cinema.San Francisco ChronicleNovember 24, 2015
Enjoying this film will depend on your state of mind. Indeed, "The Forbidden Room" is a state of mind unto itself.NewsdayNovember 06, 2015
Maddin's singular brand of cinematic reinvention goes a little over the top.Globe and MailOctober 09, 2015
[A] narcotized fever dream ...NPROctober 08, 2015
The film is more than just spot-on parody.Winnipeg Free PressMay 08, 2017
The film doesn't disappear, of course. It just folds into itself, again and again, ultimately transforming into an ecstatic, enclosed, gloriously self-indulgent expression of pure filmic desire.En FilmeJanuary 04, 2017
An intense and explosive sensory experience; An elegant delirium that injects vigor into contemporary cinema by returning faith to the power of the imagination. [Full review in Spanish]Seanax.comMarch 17, 2016
Canadian iconoclast Guy Maddin has been making strange, surreal films that evoke the images and storytelling traditions of silent movies for decades. The Forbidden Room (2015)... is like a compendium of his obsessions and cinematic fetishes.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsMarch 14, 2016
The bad part is that at over two hours long the film is not that good.4:3March 03, 2016
Whilst The Forbidden Room is overlong and messy, it is still a lightning bolt of creativity from one of the most enigmatic and compelling filmmakers working today.The Film StageFebruary 24, 2016
Dense and lacking the playful quality of his more straightforward work, this represents a new multi-narrative direction for Maddin.
