Critic Reviews for The Traitor
Show me a classic cosa nostra saga that doesn't affirm the importance of family and... well, I'll show you Marco Bellocchio's The Traitor, everything one hoped The Irishman would be but wasn't.
The Traitor is an exploration of betrayal, according to Bellocchio. He seems to be asking, can a man truly change the course of his life, or is it just a pretense? Unfortunately, this account of Buscetta's story doesn't really give us any answers.
[D]irector Marco Bellocchio enriches the on-screen bloodshed with richly detailed performances and an unpredictable energy that lifts the period crime drama above a mere gangster flick.
The biggest betrayal of "The Traitor" is its crime against the usually compelling mafia movie genre. This is an offer you can refuse.
Favino's performance is the center of gravity for the film, which encompasses nearly a century's worth of Sicilian mafia lore. Without such a compelling lead actor to hold it all together, the focus would be lost.
