Commentary

There is much to like about it. Cate Blanchett is very good, Max von Sydow does another one of his elderly fount-of-wisdom characters quite well, there are a couple of scenes where Oscar Isaac’s villain is allowed to act intelligently, and at first it looks as if the attempt to acknowledge the nobility of the historical figure might be well done, but it all falls apart to an extent that is both surprising and poisonous. I completely lost interest before the last unfounded plot twists.
