"Thrilling and unforgettable" - Indiewire

"Will make some people very mad" - Variety

"An Unforgettable ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ Revision for the QAnon Age" - Indiewire

"It dares to cross boundaries of decorum" - Slant

"Makes “The Crown” look like a Buckingham Palace PR job" - Variety

"A rude, riotous, post-Epstein horror" - Variety

"Alchemy at work" - Indiewire

“An audacious take on genre cinema that confronts contemporary issues such as global power structures, sexual abuse, conspiracy theories and the dark corners of the internet in a wildly twisted, witty and subversive manner. Perhaps in recognition that polite decorum may no longer be an effective tactic in sparking discourse around these burning issues.” - Berlinale Jury

"There’s alchemy at work in Dasha Nekrasova’s debut film “The Scary of Sixty-First,” the kind that can turn what’s old into what’s new. Equal parts ’70s-style paranoia thriller, Polanski-infused apartment horror, “Eyes Wide Shut” homage, and empathetic critical commentary on the conspiracy theories craze, this hallucinatory pastiche is even more than the sum of its cinematically riveting parts. It feels like one of the few genuine attempts at understanding this dislocating moment and the many people who have lost themselves within it." - Indiewire (Critic's Pick)
