Netflix has just released one of its most highly anticipated and ambitious productions of the year: Leave the World Behind. This new mega-production is expected to be one of the most important films of 2023. Below, we will tell you what the critics are saying about the film.
Leave the World Behind is an intense thriller that follows the story of a family whose vacation takes a chilling turn when two strangers show up in the middle of the night seeking refuge from a cyber attack that becomes increasingly terrifying. As the world falls apart, everyone must assume their role in this terrifying situation. The film is directed by Sam Esmail and stars Julia Roberts, Mahershala Ali, Ethan Hawke, Myha’la Herrold, and Kevin Bacon.
The film has received several reviews, most of which are positive. The Wrap named it “one of the best films of the year,” calling it “a two-hour descent into chaos that is compelling and totally terrifying.” The Guardian described it as “an attractive thriller” and noted that it is an example of a growing trend in cinema: long, episodic films that are beginning to blur the line between feature films and streaming television. Variety wrote that Leave the World Behind is “an intriguing Shyamalan-esque thriller,” while Screendaily added that it is “a solid, entertaining thriller about two families forced to live together in the middle of nowhere as civilization collapses around them.”
However, not all comments were positive. The Daily Beast noted that the film “is blinded by its own arrogance, believing itself to know the secrets of the human condition.”
