September 21, 2005

A fascinating and intense psychological thriller. This is one Connery fans should seek out.

There's a powerful confrontation of authority and accused between police sergeant Sean Connery and suspected child molester Ian Bannen in Sidney Lumet's The Offence. A brilliant scene, however, does not in itself make for a brilliant overall feature.

Although the story has become a staple of films and TV police dramas since this, it still hasn't been done quite so well.

A great disappointment.

The Offence presents audiences with an overwhelmingly bleak rumination on evil.

Gritty police programmes are now so much a part of the TV landscape that it is hard to realise that a feature like The Offence once packed quite a punch.

Lumet's direction strives to give to material that is neither edifying nor suspenseful a fake profundity, stretching it to unconscionable lengths.

It's highly theatrical -- perhaps just a little too highly theatrical for the more or less realistic context -- but it's been staged by Lumet for maximum effect.

A powerful and complex performance by Connery is somewhat weakened by Lumet's typically stiff and stagey direction.

Time Out

January 26, 2006

Embedded in a 'realistic' police scene, dialogue and situations now have a ring of arty melodrama. Fascinating, nevertheless, with outstanding performances from Connery and (especially) Bannen.

This unrelentingly somber policier inaugurates a newfound force in Lumet's work.

The third collaboration between Sean Connery and the director Sidney Lumet is an unsettling glimpse into the toxic mind of a policeman who has been polluted by the horrors witnessed over the course of his career.
