The Nightingale (2019)
Critic Reviews for The Nightingale
If The Nightingale doesn't quite fulfil the high expectations for Kent's sophomore feature, it still shows a director with a muscular handle on her craft, though in this case she could have used a script collaborator to address the weaknesses.
[Director Jennifer Kent] charts her own path in The Nightingale, a savage journey that might not have been worth the trip were its guide not so adept at navigating the darkness.
An undeniably overlong but beautifully imagined revenge fable.
There's a terrific film in here somewhere, with upmarket echoes of the exploitation thriller tradition of the 70s, but it gets lost in overstatement and a surfeit of plot reversals.
One of the most memorable works in its genre - a parable that never turns violence into a spectacle, but is resolutely committed to expose the poisonous double prism of racism and sexism it feeds upon.
