Widows

Steve McQueen Großbritannien, 2018

HKFanatic's rating of the film Widows - Tödliche Witwen

Steve McQueen's latest is a crime opera with "Wire"-esque ambitions - tracing the impact of Chicago politics from the richest neighborhoods to the local salon - yet the execution feels curiously inert. This is a film called "Widows" that doesn't have a single expression of grief that feels earned or authentic; and even the action beats and long takes feel overly slick and rehearsed. But more of Cynthia Erivo, please.
