"Driven by absurdist humor, random off-the-wall moments of originality and a generally ararchic tone, it mixes the heightened silliness of youth cinema with a more studied, film-literate approach. ...those who like their cinema on the edge should find a lot to enjoy here."
- Erin Free, The Hollywood Reporter
"This carousel ride of bizarre characters and out-of-control situations [becomes] a reasonably satisfying whole."
- David Rooney, Variety
"The loss of childhood innocence and the suffocating despair of adulthood come together in â€œJasper Jones,â€ a beautifully composed portrait of life in late-ླྀs small-town Australia. Centered on a 14-year-old boy caught up in a murder mystery involving a part-Aboriginal suspect, this outstanding adaptation of Craig Silvey's novel will appeal strongly to teenage and adult audiences. Boasting excellent performances by young actors Aaron McGrath, Levi Miller (â€œPanâ€) and Angourie Rice (â€œThe Nice Guysâ€), and with Toni Collette in top form as the protagonist's frustrated mother, this is the best film yet by director Rachel Perkins (â€œBran Nue Daeâ€). "
- Richard Kuipers, Variety
"It's compelling as a whodunnit, touching as a coming-of-age story, insightful as a picture of race relations and crafty as a drama about secrets, concealing a few of its own for a final, satisfying reveal."
- Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian
"...one of the best and most heartfelt Australian films of the last decade."
- Richard Gray, The Reel Bits

"[Noise] kicks off with a wallop, then constantly confounds expectations by approaching its subject matter from fresh directions."
- Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter
