Critic Reviews for Donnybrook
The apocalyptic vision of the heartland created by Sutton and his cast (based on the novel by Frank Bill) is impressively convincing, even if the themes are often overstated and the film itself is very hard to watch.
If Sutton's aim is to give these people a voice, he has not only failed, but he has gone further and reduced them to inchoate caricatures.
A repellent mixture of Malick-like dreaminess, Scorsese-esque brutality and the lurid shock/schlock of William Faulkner in Sanctuary mode.
Bleak misery porn... Compelling, visceral... Has an appealing somberness to it.
