Globe and Mail
Fast-paced, tart and unsentimental, Bad Banks is intriguing, a bloody good bet for complicated thrills, and Paula Beer is phenomenal as Jana, queen of misrule.

With a wardrobe as sharp as her haircut, Jana [Liekam] operates with savvy strategy; Paula Beer plays her intriguingly as a woman whose emotions frequently threaten to spill over, rather than a number-crunching automaton.
