  1. Blue Roses's rating of the film The War Zone

  2. twinpeaks's rating of the film The War Zone

    Seemingly ambiguous ending makes you wonder if the cycle of abuse continues.

  3. Deiner's rating of the film The War Zone

    It's really hard for me to verbalize my feelings towards this film. A draining experience for sure. That's why Roth's direction is certainly admirable, he throws this subject at our face, makes us feel guilty, confused, even like accomplices. The acting here is beyond perfection, especially Miss Belmont, whose work I consider one of the best screen debuts of all time.

  4. mpho3's rating of the film The War Zone

    This one hurts. Ebert nailed it when he said, this not a movie "about incest as an issue, but about incest as a blow to the heart and the soul." Lots of favorable comparisons of Roth to Bergman after this came out, but what will forever stick to me most is the deep-seated unease this film provokes, as well it should.

  5. Amandenberg's rating of the film The War Zone

  6. sandracine's rating of the film The War Zone

    If this film manages to help one person to come forward and end an abusive relationship then Roth will have achieved greatness. Difficult to watch, but well done by all. Tilda Swinton is excellent, as usual.

  7. Howard Orr's rating of the film The War Zone

    [Spoilers] Deeply disturbing portrait of child abuse in a family, which dares to show an abuser not as a monster but as for the most part a loving parent. The final scene, which implies the cyclical nature of abuse, is one of the most brutal ever endings in film. Belmont's performance especially is staggering.

  8. galuh indri's rating of the film The War Zone

    Tim Roth incredibly portrayed the word "disturbing". Not only a great actor, this is an evidence of him being a great director.

  9. Emil Rosenstrøm's rating of the film The War Zone

    Disturbing doesn't even cover it. Ranks among the most nausiating film experiences I've had. Not because it is bad - that not what I'm saying - merely that it really succeeds portraying something awful.... and afterwards you won't know what to do.

  10. cmuela's rating of the film The War Zone

    This was really disturbing, I’m speechless. Tim Roth’s good.

  11. Daniel Montiel's rating of the film The War Zone

    I still remember the shock of seeing this for the very first time at a very young age, its bleakness and sincerity along with powerful and touching performances make this an unforgettably powerful film. The pacing though is a little bit uneven.

    very disturbing, and hard yet worth watching!

  16. oldblackdawning's rating of the film The War Zone

    Grim. Absolutely grim. But unmissable at the same time. WInstone and Belmont give excellent performances.
