Rob Tregenza’s film is rooted in the communion as well as the sensorial challenges of savoring art.
The Robber isn’t all it could be, but there’s a kernel of a great film in it.
It’s tiring when filmmakers claim that their work is anti-psychological, and then use technique as a smokescreen for dubious racial, sexual, and political views.
Revanche is a remarkable vision, not only for the beautifully unnerving artistry of its images but for its quizzical existential questioning.
Revanche is a character-driven fallout-from-crime tale full of midsummer sunlight and yearnings for redemption.
