Movie Reviews

“There’s a dampness to certain scenes, as if the sweat of the characters has spilled onto the screen. In ‘The Novice’, these qualities create a full, nightmarish sensory experience.” 

JOURDAIN SEARLES: THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER 

“The filmmaker depicts Alex’ freshman year in quick-cutting, frenetic, anxiety-ridden fashion, with string-heavy score properly ratcheting up the tension” 

CRAIG D. LINDSEY: AV CLUB 

“Fuhrman is fantastic. Her frustration and determination are scary on their own, so coupling her performance with Hadaway’s stylistically sensory choices only makes it more intense an experience”
