Critics reviews

A fine introduction to my viewing (someday) of MARKETA LAZAROVA, this being another moody medieval yarn – only shorter and less epic – with muscular visuals (note the opening shot), a very distinctive score with choral and even atonal passages, and a script that makes, say, THE DEVILS (or even “The Crucible”) look a little silly, the priest in this case slow to accuse and never hysterical.
