Pick of the Week
Tuesday, After Christmas (Lorber Films) — If your marriage or long-term relationship is on the rocks, you might not want to watch Radu Muntean’s domestic tour-de-force, which is as devastatingly honest and realistic a depiction of adultery and a marriage’s subsequent dissolution as you will ever see. Lots of films employ the long-take technique, but in this particular case, Muntean’s decision to let his scenes unfold in this manner proves to be vital to the film’s heartbreaking power. It forces viewers to suffer through this excruciating ordeal in real time without having the comfort of somewhere to hide. Tuesday, After Christmas is a real crusher and one of the year’s very best films. Available on DVD.
