Stands as a wrenching tale of power abused and lives discarded. It is powerful stuff.
Raises the bar for crime drama on the boob tube.
1983 shifts to an unlikely hero: a slovenly solicitor...[and] "soul man"... [Blu-ray]
Like the overall trilogy, it's as haunting as it is riveting, the kind of movie that will keep your attention while it's playing, and stick with you after the closing credits.
There's still a great deal of satisfaction to be had in both the resolution of the plot's many mysteries and the thematic throughlines of the three films.
Anand Tucker's direction and Tony Grisoni's screenplay aren't perfect but is yet another work that stands relatively well on its own but is made infinitely better when viewed in the light of the first two films.
Each film is enriched by collective detail, but it would have been richer had they played off each other rather than extending the argument.
...satisfying in that we see many events in a new light, but Jobson is too complicit in the evil that has taken place to be sympathetic which is the light he is cast in by director Anand Tucker.
1983 is executed rather messily and demands a very concentrated viewer, but the rhythms of violation and corruption remain intact, supplying a fulfilling closer to this ambitious project.
Exposing a society where every institution is rank with moral disease, and where the innocent serve out the sentences of the culpable, it's hard to tell whether those involved in this project are horrified by the goings-on or are just exploiting them.
As boring, uninspiring, and completely irrelevant this third installment in the âRed Ridingâ? trilogy are, there is some great dialogue and a few contrasts to the original story that it shares. This is absolutely not the conclusion I was hoping for, because they hardly ever shed a light on the past events and itâ(TM)s characters involved. I donâ(TM)t have much to say about this film, just that it was an utter disappointment. I still enjoyed some of the moments, making it watchable, but without anywhere new to tread, it falls flat sometimes. Stick to the first film, itâ(TM)s great!
[My predicted rating: 4]
Some of the best Gritty Drama Actors of the British Screen unite for the 3rd installment to the Red Riding Concluding part.
The high standard of acting, sometimes outweighs the actual story (which admittedly, at times were confusing) but stay with it, it builds up to a non disappointing ending, bringing to an end this impressive trilogy.
An extraordinary final chapter to the unforgettable "RED RIDING TRILOGY." "1983" ties up most of the loose ends from the first two entries, which alone might make this the most gratifying installment.
I still prefer "1980," but this film contains some of the best, most intense, most achingly beautiful scenes of the trilogy, as well as the most shocking of revelations. The performances are superb (the key new addition being Mark Addy) and the writing is top notch; it's a joy to watch all the different plot strands come together, even the most minor of details. It's the most visually striking of the trilogy and ends in a superbly poetic, emotional way.
I think this is the best possible conclusion to a remarkable saga. Providing the necessary answers while still remaining as challenging as previous installements, Anand Tucker's "1983" is not just a stellar work of cinema; it has cemented "RED RIDING" in it's entirety as a classic, monumental achievement.
The last of the Trilogy but did they catch the wolf, I had to raise my eyebrows when it was all over. In the third of three in this series children are still disappearing. Who's to blame, did they put the right person in jail in the last film? Is it the man of God, is it the high roller, is it the Chief Inspector of Police. Its full of suspense twist and turns, and I expect to see another film in this series. All based on true events. 5 Stars
