Critic Reviews for Boxing Day
Proves timely and persuasive: as the weather becomes colder, so a thaw develops between Basil and Nick's more attractive everyman.
Tolstoy's acutely felt story yields a prosaic film tragedy that may connect with festival audiences but few else.
The film unfurls through a series of brilliantly staged and intensely uncomfortable interactions between the supercilious Basil and the grating Nick.
It's a nuanced story, cleverly combining claustrophobia and agoraphobia, and the moving climax takes on a sonorous spiritual tone of revelation and redemption.
Huston, as ever, does the devil's work to perfection, but, with no one to like - let alone root for - this soon becomes a very long and tiresome slog indeed.
