as The Deaf Man
Critic Reviews for Carnage
Carnage has some narrative messiness. But the beautiful thing here - besides Gleize's fabulous eye - is that not a single one of her solutions for the healing that takes place in her characters' lives is predictable.
The sort of film whose makers would be pleased to hear it called 'unclassifiable.' A more accurate description is 'unfathomable.'
Confidently directed and tightly constructed, Carnage announces the presence of a fresh, powerful directorial mind with each frame.
With Carnage, a pungent tale of love and sacrifice, French filmmaker Delphine Gleize has fashioned a modest epic about our ridiculous human comedy.
Audience Reviews for Carnage
An ensemble movie tying 6 seemingly unrelated stories together. The narrative is complex and sometimes hard to follow, and demands viewer's attention to fully appreciate it. The cast is excellent as well as cinematography, and the movie is mesmerizing at times. However, as a whole, it doesn't work as well as the sum of its parts, partly due to just too much going on and too many contrivances to tie the story together. Also, on more than one occasion the dialog made little sense - perhaps something was lost in translation.
i enjoyed watching this film but had a hard time following the plot. i understood what was happening by the end of the film but wrestled with how the story got there. this movie is worth checking out.
