Widows

Steve McQueen Großbritannien, 2018

Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Widows - Tödliche Witwen

Creates a dour looking, if entertaining tone, yet is non-entrancing due to lacking a rhythm. Not only the structure but its central heist is lost in a vast array of side characters and threads, with overplotting. Despite an impressive ensemble cast, it still lacks the cohesion in its parallel storylines of films like 1973's The Friends of Eddie Coyle, and would've better worked narrowly focused or as a mini-series.
