Critic Reviews for The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

Grimly beautiful and deeply shocking, this pessimistic state-of-the-nation debut blazes itself into your consciousness.

Top Critic

Loaded with easy cynicism and even easier sadism, it's a beautifully orchestrated ideological disaster that shoots for social commentary but settles for lowest-blow shock.

February 1, 2008 | Full Review…

Dubbed as Cannes 2005's hyperviolent film, it doesn't really depict any violence until it's final 10 mins climax, other than it's hyperviolent symbolism that takes a life of its own, smothering the film's narrative on the way.

February 19, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Well made, occasionally insightful and initially enjoyable drama that is ruined by a horrifically violent, tabloid-baiting final scene.

October 19, 2006 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The movie takes an incredibly long time to get going. You sit through the first part wishing something would hurry up and happen and the last 15 minutes wishing it hadn't.

April 9, 2006 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Rookie director Thomas Clay gives us a cinematic punch-in-the-face that is both real and violently unsettling.
