Critic Reviews for Orthodox
Stephen Graham is ever reliable as Benjamin, a bare-knuckle boxer and family man who provides muscle and criminal favours for Shannon, an Irish consigliere to the local orthodox Jewish mafia.
It's absurd material, very obviously overstretched, beyond breaking point, from its origins as a short. But Graham is as watchable as always, even when working with this tattered script.
Stephen Graham and Michael Smiley are both strong presences in this gloomy, atmospheric drama.
Despite his best efforts, and never quite let off the leash, Graham cannot drag this drama up from off the canvas.
Only the arbitrary twists come as any real surprise, and even those are mostly geared towards the film's single-minded mission of assuring you that life is a meaningless nightmare of suffering, whichever god you happen to kneel before.
