  • Director Patricia Riggen finds a rigorous and affecting visual language for The 33, but she and her international cast are hampered by a screenplay that too often gets in the way of a powerful story. show more

  • The whole film becomes as mechanical as the oversized drills in play at the rescue site. show more
