Critic Reviews for The Kreutzer Sonata
Rose films on the fly using hand-held digital video cameras - which give the scenes of marital discord a convincing immediacy.
The acting and the scene direction have a delicate, organic feel that is stomped all over by the narration and noise.
A gripping, Hitchcockian marital thriller with the added value of a score by Ludvig van Beethoven himself
It's actually pretty watchable thanks to a demented turn from Huston, a terrifyingly tense final act and, shall we say, a 'committed' performance from Liz.
Rohm brings subtlety to her role but Edgar's paranoia dominates, giving the hammy Huston too much room to over-cook this thin tragedy.
It may ultimately lack subtlety, but it peers into the hearts and minds of its two weird protagonists with some skill.
Audience Reviews for The Kreutzer Sonata
Rose partners up again with his go to guy Huston for a torrid tale of male jealousy out of control. It has a thoughtful, insightful script but is spoiled by its cheap look and technique.
