    Reader comments on Carnage

    Subject: Impressive debut
    Date: Mar 19, 2003
    Sender: VladPrevious | Next

    Upon first viewing, I tend to agree with Josh. This is one of those movies where the parts seem to be better than the whole. Nevertheless, the parts are quite impressive in this enormously ambitious feature film debut. 29-year-old Delphine Gleize throws so much into the mix, that it would certainly benefit from a second viewing. There's some beautiful photography, an outstanding musical score, and great performances all around from the cast. The bullfight near the beginning of the film is one of its many highlights. Unfortunately, the rest of the film appears to be moving towards a revelatory climax that never quite arrives with the knockout blow you expect it to. Despite the faults, Carnages stuck with me long after I walked out of the theater. It's definitely worth seeing, and Delphine Gleize is yet another truly exciting young director to keep an eye on.
