The movie did not impress me with its story. The nature scenes and the acting of the young Jeremy Cooper was what did impress me. Actually from what I saw I was almost convinced that all characters in the movie except the three boys the movie starts with are crazy or something. As one other reviewer wrote “In The Reflecting Skin, nobody behaves like a normal person would, and the viewer is left ... read more

"26.8. Lapsuuden viattomuus on niin kamalan särkyväistä. Ja niin lasinen on se aikuisten rakkauden talokin. Kipeä kasvutarina niin lapsi- kuin aikuishahmojen kesken."

"Tässäpä oli oikein positiivinen yllätys feelgood-tapaukseksi. En alkunsa tiennyt mitään koko filmistä, saati sen ilmeisestä kulttistatuksesta. Ajattelin hetken katsovani normaalia sodanjälkeistä americanaa lapsen näkökulmasta. Sitähän tämä tavallaan onkin, kunnes elokuva alkaa häröilemään ja twistailemaan niin häiritsevillä tasoilla, että pitkästä aikaa jäin sanattomaksi. Kuvasto ja musiikit ovat melkoisen nättejä, ja lapsiin keskittyvä elokuva saa kiitettävän. "

Miika's Movie Diary - 2018 (222 movies items)

"4.1, PC Yhdeksänvuotiaan pojan näkökulmasta kuvattua kasvutarinaa jossain Yhdysvaltojen eteläosassa. Poika joutuu tekemisiin melko traumaattisten "aikuisten" asioiden kanssa, mutta käsittelee niitä lapsille ominaisella tavalla, jolloin niitä ei myöskään välttämättä täysin sisäistetä. Tämä viaton ja aikuisuuden murheista kaukana oleva lapsekkuus välittyy The Reflecting Skinissä kallisarvoisena asiana. Musiikkia ja kuvaa yhdistellään näyttävästi. Elokuva tuntuu välillä"

"8.10. Tässä räjäytettiin sammakko. Toivottavasti elämiä ei vahingoitettu. Viggo alkaa kaljuuntua, pojat on poika ja kasvukipuja on havaittavissa. Kauhukuukauden elokuvaksi tässä oli hyvin vähän kauhua, mutta sitäkin enemmän komeaa kuvaa. Lapsien tappaminen ei tietenkään ole okei."

"Reflection Dreams of a reflection denote your identity, your self-awareness, and your present self-image. You are able to see yourself objectively, and view what is normally in your blind spot."

Film Journal - June 2016 (32 movies items)

"Hands down, the most disturbing film I've ever seen. It's not shocking like A Serbian Film, Salo or Cannibal Holocaust, instead it slowly creeps over you, enveloping you in it's darkness. "
