The hallucinatory new thriller from Colombian director Alejandro Landes, which owes a significant debt to William Golding’s Lord of the Flies in its cutting portrayal of power warping young minds. (In interviews, Landes describes Monos as a loose adaptation of the classic novel.)

In this vision, our feral ensemble are not castaways but teenage troops, posted on a remote mountaintop to safeguard both an American POW (Julianne Nicholson) and a milk cow named Shakira.

In classic war movie tradition, everyone has swaggering monikers like Rambo, Wolf and Boom Boom. But, initially, there’s not an awful lot for these restless youths to channel their bravado into. In the place of warfare are bizarre rituals, horny hook-ups and campfire raves – at least until a tragic accident triggers a sudden, steep descent into chaos. 

92% - Rotten Tomatoes 

★★★★★ - London Evening Standard
"Monos is gorgeous, but it is also lucid as hell. And it all happens at lightning speed."

★★★★★ - Observer
"It is alternately sensuous and scary, thrilling and appalling, with a dark heart of horror at its core."

★★★★★ - Guardian
"This overpoweringly tense and deeply mad thriller is the best thing I have seen at Berlin this year"

★★★★★ - Daily Mirror
"With increasingly heart-thumping and unpredictably ruthless scenes accumulating, Landes builds to a rollercoaster finale that leaves you anxious until the final frame - which will likely stay etched in your mind for some time."

★★★★ - Sunday Times (UK)
"[A] wild and spectacular tale."

★★★★ - Empire Magazine
"Ridiculously impressive filmmaking, savage and surreal, immediate but timeless."
