‘Saint Maud’ Review: A Chilling Slow Burn of a Character Study Elevated by a Fiery Crescendo

On this episode of The Global Film Podcast, Editor-In-Chief and Host Diego Andaluz reviews Rose Glass’ feature directorial debut Saint Maud. Joined by contributors Ben Rolph (Discussing Film), Kathia Woods (Remezcla & Cup of Soul), and Carolyn Hinds (Observer), they discuss their in-depth thoughts on the technical and thematic strengths and shortcomings of the film, among other notable highlights.

Having recently found God, self-effacing young nurse Maud arrives at a plush home to care for Amanda, a hedonistic dancer left frail from a chronic illness. When a chance encounter with a former colleague throws up hints of a dark past, it becomes clear there is more to sweet Maud than meets the eye.

Directed by Rose Glass and starring Morfydd Clark & Jennifer Ehle, Saint Maud is a horror drama that releases in theaters on January 29th and Epix in February. Listen to our review below or here on your preferred podcast platform.
