Critic Reviews for Betrayal
Not a total loss-some wit and a few well-sketched moments survive-but the betrayal here is largely one of the talent involved.
An absorbing, quietly amusing chamber drama for those attuned to Harold Pinter's way with words.
Hodge is fine, Kingsley tries his best, and Irons is as tight-assed as ever. But it's all so uncinematic as to make one wonder why it was ever made in the first place.
The "Betrayal" structure strips away all artifice. It shows, heartlessly, that the very capacity for love itself is sometimes based on betraying not only other loved ones, but even ourselves.
Though I didn't see the stage production when it was done on Broadway in 1980, this ''Betrayal'' is a riveting film that proceeds through the interlocking love lives of three special friends.
Once you've grasped the reverse chronology, the events peel away in layers that produce unexpected insights along the way.
