Critic Reviews for The Club (El Club)
In this zero-sum drama, despair is catching. But so is the fascination of watching a gifted filmmaker dissect the emotions and motivations of the sinned and sinned-against.
A perfect example of cinema's capacity to confront evil.
The film is shot in very dark hues, as if the story doesn't warrant any brightness or colour. It is brilliantly acted and has a real, if very seedy, pathos about it.
The Club is a startling and disturbing film in many ways - and replete with ideas.
Audience Reviews for The Club (El Club)
Jet black comedy drama exploring a difficult issue in different and challenging ways. It has a superb cast, eerie score and some very interesting sequences. It's everything I wanted Cavalry to be.
Larraín tackles a thorny subject like child molestation and other misdemeanors in the Catholic Church with great tact, and if at first the film's ironic conclusion may feel a bit contrived, it ends up giving a well-deserved punch on the revolting hypocrisy of said religious institution.
