Reviews provided by RottenTomatoes

Leslie Felperin, Variety:Kim Ki-duk's latest is a gloriously off-the-charts study in perversity.Read more

Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club:When it comes down to it, this a movie where the only major female characters are intentionally interchangeable and exist only to castrate men.Read more

J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader:[Moebius] would be easy to dismiss if Kim weren't so sincere and sober in pursuit of his Oedipal and other emotional concerns.Read more

Laremy Legel, difficult to stomach.Read more

Clarence Tsui, Hollywood Reporter:What undermines Moebius is how Kim has let high concepts and philosophical subtexts run amok without anchoring them to a substantial narrative.Read more

Nicolas Rapold, New York Times:It's one from the heart, and a twisted tale it is.Read more

Jon Frosch, The Atlantic:Moebius is sordid, yet-need I say it?-never dull.Read more

Tom Huddleston, Time Out:As an exercise in unrelenting discomfort, it's hard to beat this monstrous experiment from Korean provocateur Kim Ki-duk.Read more

Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out:Such is Kim's plotty momentum that the whole thing feels like an extreme joke made of pained silences, one that somehow strips bare the subtext of overbearing parents.Read more

Sherilyn Connelly, Village Voice:Moebius is almost weird enough to be a creation myth, and that's no small accomplishment.Read more
