Critic Reviews for The Party
Potter's movie may be too small to leave a substantial legacy. But you can't take your eyes off it as ace actors, led by a deliciously acerbic Patricia Clarkson, serve up hilarious verbal fireworks that knock the wind out of you.
It's easier to respect a filmmaker's sense of hopelessness when it's mixed with this much affection.
A beautifully conceived and executed chamber comedy/drama with tragedy at its core.

Demonstrates what can happen when a filmmaker takes on a well-worn cinematic subgenre - the dinner party gone horribly wrong - and strips it down to its blistering bare-bones essence.
