New in Theaters:
Carnage

What does a parent do when their child whacks another child in the mouth with a stick? Teeth are lost, scarring ensues, and the machinery of modern American over-parenting rolls into action. Two sets of parents meet in a painfully tasteful Brooklyn apartment in Roman Polanski’s rollicking screw-tightener Carnage to resolve that question. The answer isn’t even close to being discovered by the film’s end, but one thing is clear: not one of the four adults yammering and needling and passive-agressive-ing the others has got it right… 


Carnage is playing now in limited release. You can read my full review at filmcritic.com.
