We gave it a B

In Tabu, poetic visuals, including a potent shark attack and surprising native nudity, distinguish F.W. Murnau and Robert J. Flaherty’s subtle, elegiac antique about a pair of fugitive lovers fleeing Bora Bora who dare to defy the gods. Silent storytelling at its most captivating. B
