In 1997, his short film Bubblegum was entered in the Berlin Film Festival. He made a short version of what would become Berberian Sound Studio in 2005.

Strickland attended Reading Blue Coat School, Sonning-on-Thames until 1991.

His first feature, the low-budget rural revenge drama Katalin Varga, was financed by an inheritance from an uncle and filmed in Romania over a period of 17 days in 2006. His second, Berberian Sound Studio, is a psychological thriller set in a 1970s Italian horror film studio and starring Toby Jones. It was previewed at London FrightFest Film Festival in August 2012 and at the 2012 Edinburgh International Film Festival, where Robbie Collin of The Daily Telegraph described it as the "stand-out movie". In 2013, the film obtained the Best International Film Award at BAFICI. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian has described Strickland’s latest film as marking his emergence as "a key British film-maker of his generation". His third feature, the chamber drama The Duke of Burgundy, was a homage to Jess Franco and stars Sidse Babett Knudsen and Chiara D'Anna.
