“All of this general strangeness isn’t overwhelming, but like a riddle involving questionable math that’s constantly interrupted before the anticlimactic climax, the focus on these bizarre goings-on and quirky characters feels like a delaying tactic. Meanwhile, the bigger picture of Chariot […] remains mostly untouched and decidedly unreachable.” Mark Reviews Movies

“Perhaps because the story itself isn’t at all gripping, Sigal relies on a number of cheap camera tricks to spruce up the visuals, but Chariot‘s gimmicks don’t amount to much. The frustration is that Sigal has some obvious skill, seen in the short prelude scenes that show greater artfulness, and even a sense of dread, than the modern-day stuff.” Punch Drunk Critics

“Ultimately, what moments do flash in Chariot are not enough to overcome the feelings of confusion and aggravation its viewers are left with, and it’s hard to argue that any enjoyment one gets from picking it apart was worth the experience of watching it in the first place.” 2/5 Screen Rant

In the USA, Chariot will be released theatrically in select locations and On-Demand (VOD) by Saban Films on April 15th 2022.
