“So bizarre is the tale that Tim Wardle tells, in his new documentary, and so unnervingly mixed the emotions that it provokes, that the less you know about it beforehand the better.” — Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

“Three Identical Strangers reminds us that even the most galvanizing visual evidence can be deceiving.” — Justin Chang, The Los Angeles Times

“Entertaining, thought-provoking and filled with surprises, it scores the equivalent of a cinematic hat trick.” — Brian Lowry,
