    I’m a bit up and down on this. I read the script back during the summer and thought it was savae on the level of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolfe or Closer. Then the trailers came which made it look like a comedy, something absent from the script. Then the mixed festival reviews came. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.

    so glad you liked this. i wanted to see it on Broadway. i was also skeptical about it coming to the big screen, especially given its one location the entire time (works more often for stage than film).

    Polanski’s tremendous skill with creating dramatic tension ensures that we’re in for a gripping as well as a very funny ride. It was also even better because of the leads here and just how they take these roles, and make them their own. Good review. Check out mine when you get the chance.

    Yeah, CARNAGE was loads of fun. I’m sure some will find it terribly tedious and pretty pretentious but I thought it was just sharp, enjoyable satire. Plus how can you argue with this cast?! You just want more, more, more!

    I couldn’t believe it was over so soon. I was captivated the entire time. The camera work kept us interested in that one room (though indeed we are taken elsewhere in and out of the apartment), the sound recording and dialog editing was excellent, the frequent cellphone interruptions served as miniature ‘intermissions’ and gave us a break from the almost continuous conversation. I was least convinced by Kate Winslet until she began her slide into drunkenness, but the others were never absent from their characters. And the music, though heard only at the beginning and end, was exactly right!

    I loved this film.

    The four main actors are awesome! This film is hilarious and so far sits as the best film Ive seen in 2012 (and I’ve seen some good ones)
