Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: With calm, deliberate attention -- an approach at once compassionate and dispassionate -- Hunger explores physical extremity and political extremism.
Fresh: A mesmerizing 96 minutes of cinema, one of the truly extraordinary filmmaking debuts of recent years.
Fresh: It's a strength of this carefully composed, almost obsessively controlled picture that it has no interest in the conventional biographical focus on a subject.
Fresh: It's rigorous, evocative, and, in spite of its grisly imagery, elegant. It's a triumph -- of masochistic literal-mindedness.
