Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It envisions Yorkshire as a bleak and ugly place, where violence is just as commonplace as Yorkshire pudding.

Groucho Reviews

Cigarettes, leather jackets, bell-bottoms, and dollops of pop music establish the socially agreed upon distractions of the particular bygone time: just a few ways of avoiding ugly truths. [Blu-ray]

With its muted colors but unmuted violence, it's similar texturally to David Fincher's superb Zodiac, about another 70s serial killer. It's also just as disturbing.

The Red Riding films all come across as great, gritty tales of police corruption and human failing, but it's the first film that has the most impact, mainly because the young reporter Dunford is such a mix of romantic notions.

Austin Chronicle

This is a noir, the kind where the good-for-nothing gumshoe (here, an investigative reporter) has a habit of getting his face bashed in, usually on account of a girl.

Each film is enriched by collective detail, but it would have been richer had they played off each other rather than extending the argument.

A well-made, expertly performed mystery with the added bonus that there are two more films to watch when this one's over.

It is effective at setting the stage, introducing some of the characters, and capturing the attention of those who love gritty, uncompromising dramas about police corruption and the dark side of human nature.

...the only one of the films [of the trilogy] which can really stand on its own artistically...

Brian Orndorf

The tenets of crime cinema are well taken care of in 1974, which sets a specifically chest-tightening tone of anxiety and futility that makes the next two pictures (1980 and 1983) impossible to miss.

Brandon Judell

Tightly helmed by Julian Jarrold (Kinky Boots) . . . (and) beautifully shot, with some sensational acting turns -- especially by Rebecca Hall as one of the victims' mothers.
