The Traitor

Critics Consensus

While it doesn't probe particularly far below the surface of its central character, The Traitor tells its fact-based story with enough energy to entertain.

All Critics (102) | Top Critics (30) | Fresh (86) | Rotten (16)

  • Favino, a familiar face internationally as a lumpen heavy, gives a galvanising career-best performance...

    November 22, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The Traitor has all the trappings of an indecently immoral entertainment. Yet it has turned out be oddly flattened.

    August 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A complex character study emerges, one that is inherently unflattering (Buscetta is a ruthless killer), in a restlessly intelligent film.

    July 24, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A brooding, two-inch-thick porterhouse steak of a movie.

    July 23, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Carried by Pierfrancesco Favino's layered central performance.

    July 22, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • There's a sharper film lurking somewhere insider... But those wanting a more detailed exploration of organized crime in Italy - and the mental trauma it inflicted on soldiers and civilians alike - would do well to make time for Bellocchio's latest.
