Ido Dvora’s review published on Letterboxd:
Wes Craven is a fine creator. We're constantly talking about a postmodern wave that swept Hollywood in the 1990s when those who stood in his possession were directors Quentin Tarantino, David Fincher, Paul Thomas Anderson and the group that could be called the "Director of Video Education", who acquired their education in film through watching movies rather than through professional studies. While Wes Craven is not considered part of this small community, he is undoubtedly one of the directors who has changed the face of Hollywood with postmodern and innovative films that have broken through. The 1996 film "Scream" was the first postmodern horror film, which contained a mix of perspectives, twists that are being mistaken during the film only to turn out to be true, and especially many quotes from various horror films in order to justify the new work, even sometimes films by Wes Craven himself. Scream, long before it's a good movie with an interesting and authentic main character, is a smart film, exemplarily characterized and presents an unforgettable viewing experience - a self-aware horror film and its limitations. And that, no one will ever take to Wes Craven, and it's definitely his masterpiece.
