What Maddin & Co. have invented here ranges from Freudian horror to childish naughtiness.

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, 2016-02-18

 

Guy Maddin delivers another of his wild and whimsical fantasies, tinged with camp and couched in the film grammar of silent cinema.

J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 2015-12-03

 

Maddin's singular brand of cinematic reinvention goes a little over the top.

John Anderson, Newsday, 2015-11-06

 

[A] narcotized fever dream ...

James Adams, Globe and Mail, 2015-10-09

 

The film is more than just spot-on parody.

Mark Jenkins, NPR, 2015-10-08

 

Guy Maddin's latest act of cinematic mayhem isn't easy to parse, but narrative coddling has never been his intent.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2015-10-08

 

At a time when everyone is talking about the death of the movies, Guy Maddin proves that we can always bring them back to life.

David Ehrlich, Time Out, 2015-10-07

 

Is "The Forbidden Room" an infantile Freudian joke? Yes, it's that and a lot more.

Stephen Holden, New York Times, 2015-10-07

 

For those attuned to Maddin's goofy sense of humor, it's easily the funniest movie he's ever made -- a series of several dozen comic shorts strung together on a ludicrous clothesline.

Mike D'Angelo, AV Club, 2015-10-06

 

For cinephiles and aficionados of the singular, The Forbidden Room represents a very particular kind of feast.

Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter, 2015-01-30

 

Enjoying this film will depend on your state of mind. Indeed, "The Forbidden Room" is a state of mind unto itself.

David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle, 2015-11-24

 

A repetitious, rather formless jest that will wear out its welcome for many viewers long before jerking to a halt at the two-hour mark.

Dennis Harvey, Variety, 2015-09-29
