WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Film Threat by

Bloody Oranges somehow registers itself as an important film and proves significant in every cinematic sense.

Los Angeles Times by Noel Murray

Bloody Oranges isn’t a heavy-handed polemic. It’s more a genre-hopping experiment: sometimes funny, sometimes terrifying. Meurisse’s pluck is admirable, even though — or perhaps because — he’s made something often incredibly unpleasant.
50

Movie Nation by Roger Moore

Taken as a whole, the film is the quintessence of “mixed bag,” with some sketch situations, characters and performances commanding our attention, and others just sort of drifting by, “connecting” the disparate stories but accomplishing little else.
80

Screen Daily by Wendy Ide

A savage black comedy and an up-to-the-moment commentary on contemporary society, Bloody Oranges launches a broadside on political correctness.
