Re: Movies Seen in 2012


48. In Darkness (B+)

You see a lot of cynical comments about "Holocaust movies" as being awards bait, and while that's true, it's still a very significant artistic topic, and you can see why it attracts people looking to make serious drama. In this case, this is a Polish movie, and given how enormous an event that was to modern Polish history, in a way it's surprising that Polish cinema deals with anything else. This is a good movie, with some notably successful characteristics (it manages to evoke the world of the sewers where its characters hid very authentically), though I don't think it quite crosses the threshold from good to great.
