Falls prey to a creeping structural rigor mortis that sets in early.
Features fine performances by a cast of veteran actors but is marred by its unconvincing back story.
Underneath its cheeky amorality, there beats a heart.
Scrambling to find a place in the Coen brothers' shadow, Racz tries too hard to manufacture a sense of zany unpredictability, but each new twist only reveals Sheldon as the soulless opportunist that he is.
With a plot that is at once needlessly complicated and maddeningly careless, the movie veers unsteadily between farce and crime drama and never really engages the viewer.
The Burial Society is definitely big on plot, but can the thing dance? Short answer: It's no Astaire.
The twisty storyline does have its moments, but eventually the actors are reduced to wearing the requirements of the plot like pairs of cement shoes.
Mostly mediocre heist flick.
The feature debut of writer-director Nicholas Racz is twisty and clever, if not a reinvention of the genre.
The film plays like an old episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, with a resolution that's truly unpredictable.
The appeal of The Burial Society lays in its unusual and obscure take on an otherwise mundane tale of greed, treachery and double-cross.
Spiritual on the one hand and street tough on the other - a cross between The Jewish Sopranos and Six Feet Under And Kosher.
