Margaret Reviews

September 10, 2012
Three hours is awfully ambitious for a talky drama, but necessary for achieving the character depth Lonergan shoots for. If that level of character insight feels strange, it should: It barely exists in American film.

An engrossing character study with so much insight into human frailty that it's actually quite disturbing. Lonergan portrays her distress with an honesty and wide enough context that it can be extrapolated to the entirety of post-9/11 New York City.

A bit of a home-video miracle: a film that barely saw the light of day, on a Blu-ray that almost didn't happen, with an extended cut that fans thought they'd never see.
