"It’s a work that forces you to reexamine how we’ve processed this chapter of history and restores a proper sense of ungraspable horror."
David Fear, Rolling Stone
"The Zone of Interest leaves you pondering the magnitude of what the banality of evil has wrought — and the terrible, inconsolable void that it leaves behind."
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
