Raymond's Review of Anna Karenina
Boasting splendid production design, gorgeous set pieces, stunning cinematography and a wonderfully immersive score, Anna Karenina is mostly an art piece, with a love story at it's heart. The only thing about this love story is that it's too drawn out and slow moving as is the story, to really keep the audiences attention. There are some electric scenes that are stunning and elaborate technical showpieces, and there is some fantastic acting by Keira Knightley and Jude Law, but overall Joe Wright's Anna Karenina is somewhat of a bore, but made watchable by the performances, elaborate production design, music, costumes and cinematography. Expect lots of oscar nominations in the technical categories.
