Brattle Film Notes: “Scene Analysis: A ‘bumpy night’ in ‘All About Eve'”

Reviews for ‘The Third Murder’

“With its echoes of ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ and ‘Rashomon,’ ‘The Third Murder’ is tantalizing, and in the end, the truth may be as hard to grasp as a snowflake.” – James Verniere, Boston Herald

“An intriguing and cerebral quasi-genre picture… a captivating puzzle.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“For Kore-eda, an essential truth about life lies in the accumulation of unexplainable incidents and facts.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice

“There’s plenty to chew on as Koreeda picks apart ideas of morality, law and justice.” – Tom Huddleston, Little White Lies

NYT Critic’s Pick “The back and forths between accused and lawyer are among the movie’s most enthralling scenes, largely because the soft-featured Mr. Yakusho – lips lightly curling – can make a nice smile seem positively terrifying.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
