A robust, atmospheric suspense thriller that shows how politics and personal ambition can have a toxic effect on justice.
A formidable achievement.
The motives of the strangler may remain ultimately unknowable, but the crimes of the state against its servants and citizens prove just as impenetrably pernicious. Both killer and country... are governed by their own abusiveness and impotence.
Directed by Arpad Sopsits, Strangled is an unflinching piece of work that doesn't hold back.
Strangled is a solid crime saga, benefitting from atmospheric cinematography by Gabor Szabo and a historic backdrop where the murders reverberate into the political arena of the era.
It can be crass, but there is merit in this movie's sense of time and place.
... achieves the unusual feat of being nasty - and boring.
An intelligent and deeply unsettling reflection on troubled times, Strangled is a remarkable accomplishment that puts most other serial killer films of the past decade firmly in their place. Catch it if you can.
Although beautifully shot, this is surface-level only: besides the underdeveloped characters, the scenes of sexual violence are gratuitously repetitive.
While Strangled is an interesting, if highly disturbing story, it's let down a little by its script and style.
