The gimmicky structure and style is more distracting than effective, and it mostly fails to compensate for an underdeveloped plot.
With frothing energy and unfettered vulgarity, "Us and Them" lances the boil of working-class grievance and watches as the infection spreads to everyone in its path.
As sleek and polished as Us and Them looks, it finds Martin not only biting from more established filmmakers, but biting off more than he can chew.
Roth continues to anchor the film and Martin has style to spare, but this is one of those projects that most of all makes you excited for what its star and director will do next.
It's a decent concept for any sort of movie - a thriller, a horror flick, a comedy - but the problem here is that writer-director Joe Martin never quite decides which one he wants to make.
A stylishly violent home invasion movie.
Writer-Director Joe Martin's Us And Them is a class war, social commentary filtered through a post-Quentin Tarantino cinematic world.
Turns out jerks come with all different sized bank accounts.
All in all, the effect is like Guy Ritchie has remade Michael Haneke's Funny Games after huffing old copies of the Socialist Worker.
It feels as if there are three different films struggling to get out and though it can be tense, this can undercut it at times. However, it's sparkily shot and edited, and the camerawork is interesting.
The script's hyperactivity distracts enough from the fact that its musings on class conflict are underdeveloped at best.
Biting, witty and cruel class war satire that goes too grim and too far to be as much fun as it wants to be.
