Homicide: The Movie Reviews

Homicide, David Mamet's ponderous film about a Jewish cop losing his way, loses its way whenever it wanders from the scene of the crime

Movie Metropolis

The doomy mood of the final scenes packs a wallop that's missing from Mamet's more contrived narratives.

a high wire neo-noir that bravely incorporates the urban thriller with the crazy twist of religious conversion and the saving/condemning of a divided soul.

As Mamet writes, so he directs -- his shots get to the point, usually one we don't forget.

I still like the movie for the way it immerses itself in each moment, and for the intense way it moves and sounds.

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.

Nobody does it like Mamet. A terrific cop movie.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

A trama policial uma mera ferramenta para que o protagonista inicie uma angustiante jornada de auto-descoberta, levando a um desfecho que, como tantos outros na obra de Mamet, prima pela ironia .

| Original Score: 4/5

Mamet's morality tale about a tormented Jewish identity is sincere but unfortunately the film becomes earnest, turning Bobby and the other Jewish characters into self-righteous men; contrived plotting doesn't help either.

The experience of spending time with the 'Homicide' team is so pleasurable that it's disappointing to be reminded of the stringent requirements of "plot" and "resolution."
