December 5, 2013:Critics Consensus: Out of the Furnace is Tough but Uneven
This week at the movies, we've got just one wide release: Out of the Furnace, a blue-collar crime...
No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
The guy fancies himself a hero, when in reality he's the person constantly thinking of witty comebacks after the fact.
Helmer-writer Charles de Lauzirika's accomplished debut feature is too funny and self-aware to be disturbing, but it's certainly memorable.
Psycho film noir in the crumbling inner city has the right idea but lacks depth.
An artful if overlong howl of urban lamentation that puts an intriguingly melancholic top-spin on notions of vigilantism.
A creepy and deliberately paced thriller that is effective in its unpleasantness ...
[The actors are] all undermined by not just the clichéd story but director/co-writer Charles de Lauzirika's misguided tone, which veers from straight-up impotent fury to a clunky humor that's just not funny in the story's overall context.
For those of you expecting a rousing tale of vigilante justice and psychological thrills, you'll sadly be craving a completely different film once you realize the one you're watching has a strong grasp on neither aspect.
The film's method of admitting its own hypocrisy so as to enable it to further indulge said hypocrisy grows more grating than if it were merely indifferently conceived junk like Falling Down.
The fantasy urban vigilante pic ends with a whimper instead of a bang.
Putting aside the nagging sensation that you may have seen this type of character study before, Crave proves to be an impressive career-maker for all involved.
