The Son

Tweet Review by Dean Duncan May 28, 2015 @deanduncan63

Saw the Dardenne brothers’ awe-inspiring #TheSon. Doesn’t quite put everything else to shame—happily, at this late date …

… there can be lyric poetry after the Holocaust—but it sure makes most of the commercial run-of-the-mill look utterly frivolous.

#TheSon. An ethical, economical, sociological thriller. A theological thriller, even. I know/love Hitchcock. This beats him, handily.
