Critic Reviews for Black '47
Director and co-writer Lance Daly tells a blunt-force story in blunt-force fashion, draining the color from both landscape and denizens, and spelling out details in dialogue where he thinks it might be helpful.
The movie sits in a murky place between appropriately weary historical drama and a more nimble action-Western hybrid, spurred by an outlaw's revenge
A visually arresting, Anglo-Irish western-style revenge tale that maintains a firm directorial grip on the foreboding landscape.
Despite its Irish setting, Black '47 feels more than anything like an American Western, what with its shades-of-grey morality and almost Biblical quest for payback.
Since this is a rare feature film to treat the Irish famine, it's a little odd that it tilts so heavily toward a genre exercise. But as a genre exercise, it's pretty potent.
