  • With Knuckle, Palmer offers a thorough -- and extraordinarily compelling -- portrait of the Travellers. show more

  • For all their brutality, the fights are so seductive and exciting that their consequences - the physical and mental toll exacted from the men and their families - sometimes fail to register. show more

  • Palmer keeps his focus tightly on the families, which makes the movie admirably unpretentious but also incomplete. Nevertheless, the picture has a vibrant central character in James McDonagh, the leading fighter in the clan who begins to question the rites of violence. show more
