  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Brian Welsh’s timely film celebrates civil disobedience through a coming-of-age lens at a time when authoritarianism is on the rise and the youngest generation is at the forefront of the human rights battle… The moving, central heartbeat of “Beats” is how Welsh lets us see Spanner through Johnno’s eyes.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: I was quite charmed and affected by it. It has a very big heart, one that beats as hard and loud as the music itself.
  • [New] | Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: A touching story of two unlikely pals in the UK during the 1990s who simply want to attend a rave.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Beats captures the highs and lows, the simultaneous hope and desolation, and, most of all, the wild, anarchic freedom of youth and having no idea what you’re doing, but plowing full speed ahead, consequences be damned.

    • Excerpt: “Sometimes, we’ve all just gotta jump”!
