"ONE OF THE BEST LEADING PERFORMANCES OF THE YEAR" - UK FILM REVIEW

Five-star review of Stella Velon’s ‘The Critic’ by Chris Olson for UK Film Review

 

Gloriously fierce and packed with substantial emotional heft, The Critic is a short film that benefits from a powerhouse performance. Velon is incredible in this role she wrote and is able to direct herself through a wonderful selection of intense and compelling scenes with skill....

Intertwining external pressures with internal angst and guilt, The Critic is a powerful short film loaded with exceptional dialogue and cinematography. For me, a jaded male critic, I would still say this is one of the best leading performances of the year so far.
