Carnage

Saw this Roman Polanski movie called Carnage on Netflix the other night and it caught me by surprise. It was very very good. In the genre of films with a small cast almost entirely set in one room I can think of a few greats, and this is now one of them.


There is a great effort at something like reconciliation and justice in this film, but it collides with what one character calls belief in a 'god of carnage'. The difficulty of such efforts is palpable, and it is very interesting how it plays out, especially for those who actually claim belief in a Reconciling God (and maybe don't put in quite as much of an effort).

oh wow, it's out already?!

i love Polanski, despite his large collection of mediocre films.

all it takes is one masterpiece, and he's got several.
