Critic Reviews for Homicide
Unfortunately, the transitions are sometimes abrupt and unconvincing, despite Mantegna's intensity.
David Mamet's "Homicide" is a brilliant muddle: compelling, exhilarating and, at the same time, profoundly dubious.
The movie cannot learn from its mistakes; they are forever displayed within it.
The movie crackles with energy and life, and with throwaway slang dialogue by Mamet, who takes realistic speech patterns and simplifies them into a kind of hammer-and-nail poetry.December 13, 2017 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
Perhaps it could be argued that Mamet's plays are notable for their realism, certainly Mamet's films are distinguished by their theatricality.December 13, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
The Pulitzer-winning playwright's movies are often a few steps ahead of their audiences, but Homicide seems to have intuitively anticipated its now-exemplary status.December 13, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
