“The year’s most formnally accomplished, politically volatile, and thrillingly vicious provocation was: a cheeky kind of filmed theater, outrageously literal in the flaunting of its artifice; an ingenious parody of official modes of storytelling and a punking of their ideologies; a savage critique of the use and abuse of power by the most powerful nation on earth; a bracing depiction of unhinged America; a melodrama propelled by narcissism, revenge, self-righteousness, and paranoia; petulant, infantile, and rude as fuck….What it was not: Dogville.”
Nathan Lee, Film Comment [Read More]
