— Brian Tallerico, Rogerebert.com
"Nine Days marks Oda as one of our most exciting new directors, a filmmaker possessing an innovative cinematic mind with a heart to match."
— Jacob Oller, Paste Magazine
"Edson Oda’s script is incredible. It asks so many philosophical questions without being preachy or pedantic. It successfully reminds us how precious all of our lives are, which is no small feat."
— Lorry Kikta, Film Threat
"The breakout 'Black Panther' star showed his range in 'Us' almost a year ago, but what he accomplishes here is on a completely different level. Nine Days is the sort of original cinematic art that, these days, is few and far between."
— Gregory Ellwood, The Playlist
"At the risk of overselling Edson Oda’s ultra-original, meaning-of-life directorial debut, there’s a big difference between 'Nine Days' and pretty much every other film ever made. 'Nine Days' invites you to re-consider your entire worldview."
— Peter Debruge, Variety
