Kern’s review published on Letterboxd:
I've never read or seen Lord of the Flies so the similarities were mostly lost on me. Played like a blend of American Honey and Apocalypse Now to me. Stunning cinematography, and that score from Mica Levi is as astounding (and unnerving) as expected. Julianne Nicholson is really becoming one of my favorite modern actresses, and all the young actors were phenomenal as well. It definitely wont be to everyone's taste, but Monos is a potent, gritty, and beautiful film.
