Reviews: Cats (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews
    • Excerpt: A particular musical number looks as if it came from a literal fever dream, something you would see when in the fit of a medical emergency. The whole number looks insane, leaving the viewer either gasping in shock or on the floor in laughter.
  • Karl Delossantos @
    • Excerpt: At best, Cats is an interesting exercise in the boundaries of filmmaking. At the worst, which it treads closer to, it’s a disturbing, confusing, and misguided acid trip of a musical.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: The film is borderline incomprehensible, full of unsettling visuals, and cringe-inducing moments, but it is not boring. With the right mood and the right crowd, the experience of watching Cats indicates a potential as a future cult classic.
  • [New] | James Jay Edwards @ The Big Smoke America
  • Richard Gray @ The Reel Bits
    • Excerpt: One of the biggest musicals of all time comes to the cinema in a fever dream of digital neon and the latest in fur technology. We’re going to need a moment.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: I’m not sure what the hell I just saw, but I definitely know I wasn’t high enough for whatever it was.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
    • Excerpt: The makers of Cats were so preoccupied with whether or not they could CGI the junk off a nude Idris Elba, they didn’t stop to think if they should.
