  • Critic Reviews
    "...Prepare to be jolted by the intensity....The performances are as white hot as the subject matter..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...Writer-director Mathieu Kassovitz (Cafe au Lait) mines so much tension and pointed dialogue from a low budget and deceptively simple premise..." -- 3 1/2 out of 4 stars
    USA Today

    "...Extremely intelligent....The in-your-face lensing and more formal compositions are used to maximum effect..."

    "...[A] precise and troubling film....Smartly aware that many urban problems are also global..."
    New York Times

    "...Raw, vital and captivating....HATE is a visceral fable of a divided society heading blindly for a crash-landing..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...As a filmmaker, Kassovitz has grown since his first film. His black-and-white cinematography camera is alert, filling the frame with meaning his characters are not aware of..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "For all the comic byplay, Kassovitz keeps the viewer braced for the simmering tension to boil over."
