Ye insistently seeks to craft a documentary feel in a story that’s almost entirely scripted. He inserts a high dose of casualness, a variety of textures and media, and other devices associated with traditional documentary practice into his film. But the outcome is often messy. Review

He explains that he set out to create something positive at which people can look and remember him after he’s gone. He’s partly successful. While humbling, this is hardly an uplifting film. Review

This very British hybrid of mockumentary and deep fake television is as juicy and plump as the vegetables portrayed, but also a little overgrown. Review

The problem is that there is very little chemistry between the characters. There are too many sudden, profound bondings and subplots in a relatively short period of time. Review

The sombre cinematography, combined with a concrete social topic, provides the movie with a touch of realism, almost social realism, even if some stiff lines and bathetic music score partly hamper these efforts. Review

This is a documentary with a very specific focus: an album and its 20th anniversary. That’s the movie’s strength but also its weakness. Review

Developments are subtle and slow, however the film never overstays its relatively long duration of 120 minutes. A highly cryptic, jarring exuberant ending will stay with you for a long time. Review

Seven Veils is so concerned with creating a multithreaded narrative, and drawing metalinguistic parallels between fiction and reality that it forgets to raise pertinent questions about the topic that it chose to address. This is an entertaining movie to watch, however with nothing new to say to victims of sexual abuse. Review
