  • Pass the steak sauce, please.

  • The conceit is narrow and banal, losing not only the poetry of Shakespeare's work but its populist charge, too, which is weakened by yawning gaps in the storytelling.

  • Though the screenplay loses its tautness from time to time, The Hungry still makes for an engrossing watch and serves as an extremely promising feature debut from Chatterjee.

  • Although it is sumptuous to look at - albeit also extremely gory at times...the narrative can sometimes be confusing and the melodrama can seem exotically over the top.

    Oct 17, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • One might question whether it has anything to say beyond peering at cracks in gilded walls built on systems of disparity, but it's the kind of delicacy served to its decadent characters, and so we should feel spoiled to have it.

    May 15, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • As the casualties mount and the ironies increase, the story eventually tightens its grip ... as it lurches towards grand guignol and there is a positively Nymanesque tone to Benedict Taylor's score.
