Critic Reviews for The Confession
The structure becomes complex but never confusing, and Costa-Gavras always seems to be urgently on the move, wanting to tell us more than can be told.
The Confession exhibits signs of post-masterpiece fatigue, though it makes up for some of it with sheer gutsiness.
Though less invigorating than the iconic Z, it remains a compelling depiction of a harrowing experience rarely caught so astutely in narrative filmmaking as it is here.
The movie is perfect in its attention to detail, in its casting of Montand as the political prisoner. Confession fails as entertainment while it succeeds as a statement.
Costa-Gavras dramatizes Gérard's ordeal and makes us feel his pain, his exhaustion, but most of all the terrible loss of his sense of self.
Audience Reviews for The Confession
A (typical Costa-Gavras) political thriller that may interest the veterans!!
