  • Highest Rating
    "The Middle Man was a happy surprise that is fun and heartfelt, tragic and funny."
    Crockett Houghton, Film Inquiry
  • Highest Rating
    "It is ruefully entertaining and looks terrific, with a colour palette of sullen blues and ill-natured yellows."
    Wendy Ide, Observer (UK)
  • Highest Rating
    "Bent Hamer's The Middle Man offers a uniquely absurd-yet-emotional take on the denizens of a small town that should delight fans of oddball Danish films."
    Rachel West, That Shelf
  • Highest Rating
    "Fans of the Coen brothers will enjoy the casually abrupt developments and blank-faced absurdity."
    Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail
