Critic Reviews for Pity
A disturbing and oftentimes very funny satire-drama, Pity is about that complex, primal human craving called empathy and the distance we're willing to go to summon it.
Its sharpest passages ... exert the bracing, mouth-shuddering tang of neat ouzo: You know how it's going to taste, but it leaves you wincing anyway.
As stylized as Makridis' second feature is, it's grounded in recognizable behavior, and its sly, dry playfulness reverberates with fascinating questions about emotions and how we portray them.
The situations are hilarious and horrifying all at once, the winning combination that makes every moment feel like a metaphorical punch in the gut... exactly the way our protagonist would like it.
Sharp-witted and entertaining throughout, with a cute final scene that will come as a relief to many viewers, Pity is a polished piece of filmmaking and well worth looking out for.
