News & Interviews for The Luzhin Defence
Critic Reviews for The Luzhin Defence
Makes up for a creaky structure with the intensity of emotion and psychological nuance provided by two of our finest screen actors.
It plays a predictable, if pretty, game.
When Luzhin's old chess teacher shows up, the movie becomes a slow-motion wreck.
If The Luzhin Defence falls short of being totally absorbing and compelling, it's surely because it's so difficult to translate Nabokov's view that we are all pawns in the big game.
