Martyrs is a film that has received massive praise from the horror community for being original and challenging. Apparently, the British Press have watched a different film...I woke up this morning and discovered a slew of bad reviews for the film.
Seems to have missed the point of the film, along with forgetting to put any sort of effort into what he has to say about it...
The Times & The Sunday Times:
One of these buggers didn't even stay until the end of the film, yet feels it's okay to slap a star-rating onto their review.
Relegated to the bottom of the page, with a two-sentence 'review'.
Okay, fine. At least they treat the film with a tad more respect than the other reviewers seem to have done.
The Guardian, again, saving the worst until last:
The most ridiculous of all these reviews. Seeing has Mr. French put no effort into reviewing the film, I'm going to put no effort into calling him an idiot.
More shocking than the sodding film. But wait! It seems not all British reviewers are idiots, afterall...
I like these guys. They have the nuts to call it out as a massively difficult and polarizing film AND say that they enjoyed it.
The film is currently being screened at the ICA in London: http://www.ica.org.uk/Mart
