“Los mejores temas es una mirada fresca sobre un tema tantas veces tratado en el cine como lo ha sido el de la representación. Una obra que se sostiene con actuaciones impecables, que toma forma con base a su contenido y que a partir de esta forma y este contenido, sin miedo, se arriesga a ponerse en juego a sí misma y a poner en juego al espectador de manera directa y sin titubeos.”
— Camila Arriaga Torres: Arcadia

“Pereda propone un diálogo con el documental muy interesante y que asume riesgos cada vez mayores en la cinta alternando a dos intérpretes para el mismo papel que, lejos de restar, ofrecen un nuevo nivel de lectura a la misma”.
— Fernando Moreno: Corre Cámara

“Lo que le importa a Pereda es la transgresión de las convenciones del cine narrativo. La ficción es excusa para acercarse a la mente de sus actores (no modelos ni actores en el sentido convencional) y así alcanzar un nivel de emoción puro y crudo”.
— Indie Lisboa
