Critic Reviews for Clemency
I hate the amateur quarterbacking I'm about to engage in, but that [Woodard's] performance did not merit an Academy Award nomination is damning.
While admittedly spartan in its stylistic approach, Clemency is wrenching in its performances and direction.
"Clemency" isn't exactly a good time at the movies, but it's definitely an enlightening one.
Much of "Clemency" is told through the facial expressions of Woodard, an actor of the highest calibre who knows the most powerful stories are often the ones that need the fewest words to tell.
The title of "Clemency" refers to the mercy extended to a prisoner, but it's the wisdom of this grave and sorrowful drama to spread the meaning to everyone in its view.
