Juliette Binoche goes through an arduous journey. The audience goes through an arduous journey. Leaden.
STORY OF JUDAS ★★½☆☆
Philosophically probing. Theologically bold and revisionist. Let down by amateurish writing and acting.
VARIETÉ  ★★★☆☆
Restoration. Technically on the money, but bottles coda - morally cack-handed. New score a mixed blessing.
