Critic Reviews for Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts
To its credit, the film eschews excess gore and mayhem, largely making its points in more subtly incisive ways.
Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts recalls the oaters of Sergio Leone and his brethren, all right, but it upends the usual male concerns for some serious and satisfying feminist payback.
It's one of those features from a distant part of the globe that seems like it may have been created primarily for Western art houses and festivals, where its exemplary direction and feminist theme are indeed likely to win Surya new fans.
Working with the cinematographer Yunus Pasolang, Ms. Surya gives "Marlina" a stark, steady, captivating look that keeps you largely engaged even when the story and your attention drift.
With a Morricone-inspired score, gorgeous cinematography that screams to be witnessed on a big screen, and bleak humor, this film's tightly executed, meticulously controlled surface barely contains the seething fury within.
