Critic Reviews for Luce
Adapted by Onah and JC Lee from Lee's play of the same name, it's chilling and provocative, sharply written and sensationally acted by a cast of big-hitters and unknowns.
It's Spencer's performance that ends up packing most of the film's heat. Where the other characterisations dither or flip-flop, hers deepens, intensified and shaken by the war of ideas.
Staginess stalks the enterprise throughout, a prowling figure in an opera cape, and ends by strangling everyone with the cords of loquacity, moralism and story contrivance.
Luce feels theatrical in the wrong way: muddled and contrived.
A convincing and confidant example of sustained menace.
