2021 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 11 – Justin Kurzel’s Nitram

2021 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 11 – Justin Kurzel’s Nitram

His only other comp offering was 2015’s Macbeth, but his debut film (we were there) was Snowtown (later known as The Snowtown Murders). There is a grizzly connection between Justin Kurzel’s first film and his second comp showing wih Nitram. Starring Caleb Landry Jones – this is not your usual portrait of a killer.

Quite the big surprise today on the final day of comp film showings. Eight of our critics have combined for a 3.6 score for Kurzel — tied for second place with Memoria and A Hero.
