The critical consensus

A follow-up to the terrific, unconventional Archipelago that continues Hogg's ascent as one of Britain's more interesting independent filmmakers.

****(*)Kim Newman, Empire Online, 21/04/2014

Hogg’s third film mounts a dead-on study of disconnection. You wouldn’t know the leads are non-pros: Gillick and Albertine nail all the fine details of a push-pull dynamic with magnetic precision.

****(*)Kevin Harley, Total Film, 21/04/2014

Exhibition is a probing study of the creative process, female sexuality and the myriad ways in which we relate to our environment and each other.

****(*)Philip Concannon, The Skinny, 18/04/2014

We may not know what lies in store for D and H at the end of Exhibition, but Hogg's future as one of the most compassionate portraitists of the British psyche is assured.

****(*)Ryan Gilbey, The Guardian, 09/08/2013

Well acted, and occasionally droll, this is an abstract piece of work that doesn't quite excavate enough character interest to compensate for the lack of narrative.

***(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express, 23/04/2014

Exhibition approaches matters of anatomical and psychological integrity in determined, democratic fashion.

****(*)Jordan Cronk, Little White Lies, 24/04/2014

Exhibition is challenging, sensual, brilliant film-making.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 24/04/2014

Hogg’s determinedly oblique style will infuriate filmgoers used to movies which spell out their intentions. At times, Exhibition seems more a behavioural study than a piece of drama. However, it has its own gently beguiling rhythm which makes it easier and more pleasurable to watch than its synopsis might suggest – and it has an emotional kick, too.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 24/04/2014

Exhibition reaffirms Hogg's status as a distinctive, singular and challenging voice of British cinema.

***(*)(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 27/04/2014

It makes for richly rewarding viewing, the sort of film that lingers for weeks after seeing it.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 10/05/2014

More bourgeois angst from Joanna Hogg in an abstract form that should enthral fans, but may exasperate casual viewers.

****(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 18/05/2014
