After the ill-receiv...

    With "Carnage," Polanski Fights a Losing Battle to Make Theater Cinematic. But What a Cast.

    Yasmina Reza's hit play "God of Carnage" ingeniously traps its characters on the stage. A dark comedy unfolding in real time, the chaotic plot involves a pair of well-to-do parents sorting blame for an unseen fight between their children. As they wander about one couple's apar...

    REVIEW | Lonergan's Long-Delayed "Margaret" Flopped at the Box Office, But It Deserves Better
