Critic Reviews for The Death of Klinghoffer
Sellars' original staging was a stylized, almost pageant-like affair, which allowed the creators to claim descent for the piece from Bach's Passions. Without that fig leaf, the ugliness at the heart of the work ... becomes all the more apparent.
Woolcock mostly makes the film work visually -- she's excellent at the pointed close-up and frenzied camera movements.
Uses the film medium to amplify the sense of the historic sweep of events and the tragedy of conflict amongst peoples for a safe haven on an ever shrinking, ever more contentious planet.
Jolting, imaginative adaptation of the John Adams opera, though some people may be bothered by the film's aggressive anti-Israeli political message.
