9 December 2015
  • Conclusion: Innovative director F. W. Murnau merges documentary and stylized romance in Tabu , a film which uses Tahiti's beautiful scenery to wondrous effect (it won one of the earliest Oscar awards for cinematography).

Tabu

AV Club
27 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Paying homage to F.W. Murnau and Robert Flaherty’s 1931 classic about love and clashing civilizations in exotic paradise, Miguel Gomes’ Tabu is a striking pastiche of the kind regularly performed by Guy Maddin or Quentin Tarantino—and at least as obscurely sourced.

Variety
14 February 2012
  • Summary: Even more than in "Our Beloved Month of August," Miguel Gomes begins "Tabu" in a seemingly ridiculous vein and unexpectedly shifts to something surprisingly enriching and poetic.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
16 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The film-maker's craft is skillfully realised in stunning black and white, and "Tabu" is visually rewarding. Innovative audio techniques leave the telling of the background story to a narrator with a flat style that eventually weighs down interest. The real let down is a plot that lacks depth.

10 May 2013
  • Excerpt: #SFF12 - Även bland filmfestivalens övriga annorlunda utbud sticker "Tabu" ut, för all del med det berättartekniska upplägget men framför allt med en poetisk estetik som känns hämtad från stumfilmens tidevarv.
