[Schleinzer's] tartly brilliant second feature is awash with slow-building irony, though as with his first, there's precious little mirth in its devastating kicker.

Angelo is the most radical and different formalist proposal of the entire official [film festival] section. [Full review in Spanish]

One wonders what a black filmmaker would have made of the same story, unencumbered by the need to make this ultimately obvious point about the way whiteness burns through everyone it touches.

Angelo is a mesmerising portrait of a man of quiet dignity whose very humanity is denied by those around him.

Sep 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Schleinzer evokes levels of toxicity which are both effective and memorable in the final frame of Angelo.

There's a cold soullessness in this opulent and scathing take on Angelo Soliman's history - and purposefully so.
