    Reviews:

    Raoul Peck’s intellectually ambitious, emotionally unaffecting « Moloch Tropical », a film that combines farce, Shakespearean and Greek tragedy and contemporary political drama.
    The Hollywood Reporter

     

    Raoul Peck tucks a searing critique of absolute power within the most elegant chamber drama. It’s a masterful move.
    indieWIRE

     

    A gripping feature film, « Moloch Tropical » is a satirically edged melodrama.

    The New York Times

     

    A hothouse study of a man and country crippled by corrupted ideals.
    The Village Voice
