Ren Geekness: Wilde’s sure-handed direction elevates a faulty script in Don’t Worry Darling: a paranoia inducing thriller examining the thin line between love & control, the cost of happiness & relationship dynamics. Visually immaculate & Florence Pugh is an absolute force of nature.
Rendy Jones: DON’T WORRY DARLING furthers Wilde’s range as a skilled filmmaker who can evoke thrills. That said Florence’s back must be sore from carrying the film because the screenplay an underdeveloped mess that emphasizes on its slow burn mystery than providing a cohesive through line.
Erik Davis: Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling features a fantastically frenzied performance from Florence Pugh as a woman slowly losing control of her reality. Pugh is TERRIFIC in the seductive psychological thriller that will keep you guessing throughout. Loved the cinematography, too!
Peter Bradshaw: Directed by Olivia Wilde, it superciliously pinches ideas from other films without quite understanding how and why they worked in the first place
Owen Gleiberman: Don’t Worry Darling should have no trouble finding an audience. But the movie takes you on a ride that gets progressively less scintillating as it goes along.
Tomris Laffly: a movie I found all too simplistic in its feminism and supposed twists, despite stellar work from Florence Pugh (duh) and decent handle on crafts. Wish it worked better; it sadly doesn’t.
Rafa Sales Ross: meh. An interesting exercise in production and costume design that is much more concerned with what it wants to do than doing it. Oh, boy, how does Harry Styles try, but all his Tommy Wiseau-esque act does is adorn Florence Pugh’s inspired turn.
Rodrigo Perez: the audacious film is ultimately a misfire because of its overextending mystery conceit. Wilde proves she’s not a one-hit-wonder, at least technically and artistically. “Don’t Worry Darling” may be a misstep, but Wilde’s still got a flair for cinema that feels worth keeping an eye on.
Tom O’Brien: With a furious performance by Florence Pugh & a director who gives it her all in Olivia Wilde, the thriller DON’T WORRY DARLING coasts along fine for awhile, by the screenplay paints itself into a corner. Palm Springs (my home) never looked creepier
Kate Erbland: More frustrating is that the film also offers stunning craft work, a wonderfully immersive quality, and one of star Florence Pugh’s best performances yet. Too bad about the rest of it.
Robbie Collin: For a mediocre film, [the media storm] could have been wounding. But happily, Wilde’s is largely fantastic: the sort of juicy but accessible studio production that have all but vanished since 1990s.
David Ehrlich: THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN is Martin McDonagh’s best film since In Bruges (tho I think I like this one a smidge more).
Nino Brodin: The Banshees of Inisherin review — Martin McDonagh’s Beckettian drama is simply perfect
David Canfield: THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN is Martin McDonagh’s best movie, with Colin Farrell delivering a subtle, tragicomic masterclass. And Kerry Condon: Wow!
Little White Lies: McDonagh + Farrell + Gleeson + A Donkey Called Jenny = Perfection #Venice79
Leila Latif: I’m not commissioned to tell you all about Banshees of Inisherin. But suffice to say at the end of the first act I added it to my “10 best films of 2022” list and I stand by that assessment.
Rakita Vivien: The Banshees of Inisherin perfectly captures what it's like to lose a friend without any explanation: heartbreaking and confusing which Colin Farrell embodies impeccably. While McDonagh's black humour - often literally laughing out loud funny - helps process and ease the hurt.
Esther Zuckerman: God, I love love loved THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN, Martin McDonagh's movie-length metaphor for the Irish Civil War featuring an all time Colin Farrell performance
Jonathan Dean: THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN is glorious - yes, it’s funny, but the way it looks at ambition and depression lends it a great sadness that goes even further than McDonagh usually does. It asks huge questions but never offers easy answers and will please *everyone* who loved In Bruges
David Rooney: A never-better Colin Farrell reunites with his always commanding IN BRUGES co-star Brendan Gleeson and director Martin McDonagh on THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN, a violently beautiful ballad of broken friendship.
Robbie Collin: Wow, wow, wow: McDonagh, Farrell and Gleeson have never been better than in The Banshees of Inisherin, a jet black rural farce that becomes stranger and more troubling with every scalpel-sharp gag.
Connor Lightbody: THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN did a canine tango with my heart. A roaringly funny existential crisis wrapped up in bleak, dry wit. Was immensely charmed by so much of this breezy Irish dark comedy! Feckin’ brilliant!
Donald Clarke🎥: I enjoyed BANSHEES OF INISHERIN at #Venice79. The Civil War parallels are a bit on the nose. But this is McDonagh’s schtick at its leanest. Cast all excellent. (Full review shortly.)
Alex Billington: Maybe I'm just tried, but wasn't sure what to make of McDonagh's The Banshees of Inisherin. Weird film. It starts out kooky, fun, amusing, much like In Bruges. But becomes so depressing, sad, hopeless by the end I was lost. It's just 2 ex-friends bickering for 2 hours. #Venezia79
Nicolò Grasso: BANSHEES OF INISHERIN. McDonagh reunites with Gleeson and Farrell for a triumph of a dark comedy. A tale of dying friendships, the allure of art's immortality, and the importance to enjoy the simplicity of day to day life. Haven't laughed this much in months! #Venice79
I deeply commend Chris Pine's ability to restrain himself.
I mean if a 20 year old fuckboy spit on my seat i would be no longer responsible for my actions.
Absolutely, God Damn, Right.
I said this before when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock (ymmv on that) - this is indicative of childishness masquerading as adulthood under the veil of celebrity.
Where grown men do not know how to act at events that are bigger than just them ............You're are at a major film festival ffs - there's nothing that justifies that sh it in an industry you haven't yet put a dent into anyway and even if you had it still wouldn't........... That little nod to your "director" was particularly 12 years old.........
On the other hand, I think the vocal on As It Was was quite weak myself - which grants me the right to do something similar if I ever see him or anything I guess.............

yeah you for sure can't see any spit but there is definitely some tension coming off that video. Maybe Styles flashed Pine an unfriendly or standoffish nod of greeting, I don't know. There are hundreds of ways you can nonverbally tell someone to fuck off without spitting on them lol.
