Cristian Mungiu Romanya, 2016

Duncan Gray's rating of the film Graduation

A slow-burn mystery couches an implosive portrait of institutional rot. That description sounds incendiary, and Mungiu certainly doesn't hide his feelings about the state of Romania. But his film is also one of deep empathy for those living in a world where personal/political corruption feels like the only answer. No wasted scenes—just a potent hope that the problems of the last generation can be sorted by the next.
