Critic Reviews for Anons
Playing like an unholy mix of bone-dry comedy and a deadly serious meditation on the transience of those in power, this is a precision-tooled little gem...
Coşkun introduces comically absurdist elements... and then expertly balances the two moods on a razor-thin edge that's as dry as the martini the characters talk about.
Coskun directs well, creating a classic noir aesthetic of claustrophobic tension, but ultimately his and Ercan Kesal's script is too weak to deliver the punch they had lined up.
Throughout the film, Coşkun shows that he understands the increasingly little-practiced art of the slow burn before landing an unexpected payoff where pathos and comedy are bedfellows.
Coskun has a lot of fun with this wryly sardonic look at a country resigned to chaos and political machinations.
