"'Kinds Of Kindness stands as another compelling work from an auteur willing to push buttons and make daring choices."

— Gregory Ellwood, Gregory Ellwood The Playlist

"It’s not cynicism but a chuckling curiosity that fuels this sideways parable, which aligns it with Lanthimos’ past work in the most perfect of ways."

— David Fear, Rolling Stone

"A more unrestrained version of the filmmaker than we’ve seen of late, and all the better for it. It’s a reminder that he’s still got the heater to throw at us and knock us off our balance."

— Chase Hutchinson, Collider

"A profoundly puzzling, dizzyingly disturbing and dark-hearted set of loosely-connected stories which manage to be discordantly amusing and strangely exhilarating -- a cinematic salt-rub."

— Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International

"This is a Jesse Plemons showcase, the actor putting his instinct for the screen on full display across three heavily depicted characters. Lanthimos has put together another dark, well-crafted delight."

— Luke Hicks, The Film Stage

"A huge part of the fun is getting caught in the mesh of mind games the film sets for its audience... But it’s also a treat just to watch the well-picked ensemble show off their range in the constantly rotating supporting roles."

— Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph (UK)

"If you’re a fan of the director’s early work, you will be mesmerized by Kinds of Kindness, a film where he once again puts up a mirror to our flawed society and shows us the worst, and also the best, that humanity has to offer."

— Serena Seghedoni, Loud and Clear Reviews

"Kinds of Kindness sees Lanthimos reconnecting with screenwriter Efthymis Filippou... This new film sees the pair working in a new, more-sophisticated and coruscating register than ever before."

— David Jenkins, Little White Lies

"‘Uncanny’ is another word that’s been used to death to describe the Lanthimos universe, but there is something invigorating and forever fresh in between the repetition and the difference; the kind of freshness that slightly stings."

— Savina Petkova, AwardsWatch
