What we think

The overall lack of polish makes The Day Shall Come seem less like a passion project and more like something churned out.

What others think

Morris handles a delicate balancing act with an expected ease, the work of a satirist with so much to say yet with an awareness that saying less leads to so much more.
Benjamin Lee The Guardian
It’s a strange film that’s never short of surprises, but as with Morris’ best work, this subject might have been better served by a TV mockumentary.
Adam Woodward Little White Lies
Morris and Jesse Armstrong’s screenplay takes a good while to get going, before the escalating absurdity and hastily improvised scheming finds its groove.
Leigh Singer Sight & Sound
The movie suffers from a fleeting, half-baked quality as it rushes to a hectic showdown.
