What are people saying?

  • redux's rating of the film The Tragedy of Man

    An animated adaptation of Madách's faustian epic, worthy of respect for its sheer ambition. But the crude visuals and the obsessive accumulation of symbolism make it simultaneously under- and overwhelming. More regrettably, the director's right-wing convictions found too direct an expression in some episodes – the London scene going as far as serving up classic antisemitic tropes.
