  • Audience Reviews for The Return Most people put this in the category of supernatural thriller, well it didn't thrill me. To me the best part of the movie was the 2 car wrecks at the end.

  • Twin Peaks' superb and strange summer return was filled with trademark Lynch surrealism, scares, and sweetness.

  • "The Return," directed by Andrey Zvyagintsev and written by Vladimir Moiseenko and Alexander Novototsky, does not conceal information from the audience, which would be a technique of manipulation, but from the boys, which is a technique of drama.

  • Critic Reviews for The Return All Critics (86) | Top Critics (34) | Fresh (82) | Rotten (4) | DVD (2) The story, set in contemporary Russia, seems unexceptional at the start.

  • Yet the group’s excellence manifested just once. They split last year, the break so sudden that Williams and Dayes didn’t even fulfill all their gigging commitments as a duo. And now we have The Return, which could easily be the sequel to Black Focus—at least, that seems to be Williams’ pitch.

  • Pushing fact and fiction to the point where one is unsure just what is scripted and what, for lack of a better word, is real, Malene Choi’s The Return offers a playful, affecting and at times disorienting portrait of group of thirtysomethings who have quite literally been dis-oriented.
