Movie-going is not a civics assignment but "Till" is a sufficiently powerful motion picture that it offers more than a history lesson.
Cate Blanchett’s inhabitation of Lydia is complete and the movie’s presentation of her life is exacting in every detail; the result is nothing short of mesmerizing.
There’s power in the message conveyed by writer/director Martin McDonagh’s screenplay; it’s less a drama and more a rumination about the failings of humanity.
Although not a single line has been retained from Shakespeare's "Macbeth," "Throne of Blood" represents one of the best (if not the best) screen versions of the story.
It plays out as expected without ever being predictable - a bold, uncompromising film that doesn’t self-censor.
First-time director Goran Stolevski takes chances, doesn’t underestimate his audience, and tells a story worth telling.
