Gran lavoro di Parker,davvero un bel film.Zoppica un pochetto all'inizio,alterna troppo le vicende mettendo poco a fuoco ma poi piano piano decolla e non si ferma più,si avvale di un montaggio strepitoso e di una serie di dialoghi superbi ed incisivi.Il tema della pena capitale è difficilissimo,ma Parker lo affronta alla grande,spargendo un clima di malessere psicologico e culturale che rende alla grande....cult.
Frickin horrible. Horrible horrible pathetic ending. These two stars are for Laura Linney and Kate Winslet. Every time they got their screen time my ears went on to hear this high pitched yet comforting note and i just focused on those beautiful creatures. Kate Winslet is basically fit for anything. She'll be fighting Gina Carano and i'll still believe her.
Winner of the World Cinema grand prize at Sundance 2006, this atmospheric nail-biter, etched in stark, grisly black & white, is a triumph of diabolical filmmaking imagination, using the most minimal of tools to tighten the screws on the audience.
