Carnage (2011)

Carnage (2011)

Directed by: Roman Polanski

Starring: Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz

I’m not a huge fan of movies based on plays in general. At least this movie had a decent enough reason to stay in the same set the whole time, but it still just feels weird. One thing I gotta say, normally I hate John C. Reilly, but he wasn’t all that obnoxious in this film. So… that’s good, I guess.

Two couples meet in one of their apartments to discuss an altercation between their sons. One of them beat up the other, and the parents wanted to talk the situation out. They keep talking and arguing and eventually they go crazy and start getting angrier at each other and they all bring up other things to argue about.

Carnage is what happens when you get four awful people who hate each other in a room and the veneer of polite society falls away. There are some funny moments, especially from Jodie Foster and Kate Winslet, but overall it just boils down to people being really dramatic about little shit. Also, the movie just unceremoniously ends with no semblance of resolution or anything, that was pretty strange.
