★★★½ review by collin on Letterboxd
I get the comparisons to Ben Wheatly, Guy Ritchie and Quentin Tarantino but besides all those obvious influences Us and Them has style and substance all on it's own. Such a unique home invasion film that relies more on dark comedy rather than thrills.
Joseph Martin is a director to look out for. He's got a nice energy to his filmmaking without coming across as too flashy. The loose structure and time jumps help the film reveal it's clues piece by piece. The commentary on the rich vs. poor has been done so many times but it's just as relevant as it's ever been so I can't criticize that. Overall I really enjoyed this, I think it benefits from being so short and to the point.
★★★★ review by Billy Langsworthy on Letterboxd
Us and Them can be boiled down to ‘if Guy Ritchie did a home invasion movie’, but it’s also really good.
There’s lairy intertitles, a great soundtrack, style to burn and bombastic dialogue that only occasionally clangs. I had fun.
★★★½ review by Camilla on Letterboxd
Really didn’t think I’d like this but I was into it. Very fun movie—not really Tarantino imo, and I mean that in a good way.
★★★★ review by splitstrm on Letterboxd
Underrated. Excellent. Dark. Poetic. Bizarre. I want to see it again.
★★★½ review by Mr_Venom on Letterboxd
Good home invasion flick with a poorly executed plan. Good performances and a solid script make this one an above-average thriller.
