What we think

It’s one intoxicating ride, akin to falling head first into a well of darkness that – despite its obvious influences – transcends its origins to become a unique nightmare of its own making.

What others think

An experience at once jagged and lyrical, brutal and beautiful, angry and abstract, scattered and wholly singular.
Jessica Kiang Variety
Call it a collective character study or a perpetual-war film - Monos takes it cues from a number of well-known influences. But there's a specific, singular madness that's completely its own.
David Fear Rolling Stone
Something between Apocalypse Now, Lord of the Flies and Embrace of the Serpent.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
Equal parts Lord of the Flies and Aguirre, the Wrath of God, Landes’ third feature distills guerrilla warfare into sheer anarchy.
Eric Kohn IndieWire
While sharing surface similarities with Cary Joy Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation, Monos’s determination to stray from moralising or tugging the heartstrings over lost youth may frustrate some viewers. It is actually the film’s greatest strength.
