REVIEW: 'Anna Karenina' Is So Wright It's Wrong − Beautiful To Behold But Empty Inside

movieline
15 April 2013
  • Excerpt: There's a five-minute tracking shot in the middle of Joe Wright's 2007 film Atonement that is impossible to forget once you've seen it. A wounded Robbie ( James McAvoy ) is on the beach at Dunkirk, waiting to be evacuated, and in a nightmarish, beautiful single Steadicam take he wanders past crowds...

  • Excerpt: The Film Keira Knightley is the go-to actress for period pieces, so it's no surprise that she's playing the title character in Anna Karenina . Personally, I prefer to see her mix up her resume a bit, with projects like Seeking a Friend for the End of the World . Here we are, though.

14 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Anna Karenina is a flawed but striking adaptation of Tolstoy's sweeping novel of the same name.

Anna Karenina

AV Club
15 November 2012
  • Excerpt: There’s no deadlier sort of movie than a stodgy literary adaptation. Thankfully, Joe Wright seems incapable of making one. When, at the far end of a long run of Jane Austen adaptations, another take on Pride & Prejudice seemed like the last movie anyone needed, Wright delivered a kinetic, moving...

Review: ‘Anna Karenina’

Variety
3 September 2012
  • Summary: Eschewing the classical realism that's characterized most adaptations of Tolstoy's source novel, helmer Joe Wright makes the generally inspired decision to stylize his dark, expressionist take on "Anna Karenina.

24 March 2015
  • Summary: Translating this great tome to screen is enough of an academic exercise without filming the whole thing within the constraints of a theatre. The conceit is that Anna and co. are players on the very public stage of 19th century Russian high society, with a whirling array of curtains and spotlights...

  • Conclusion: If it doesn’t ultimately engage your heart as it might, Anna Karenina is period drama at its most exciting, intoxicating and modern. Spellbinding.
