‘Incendies’ movie review: Illuminates the darkness

‘Incendies’ movie review: Illuminates the darkness
BY JOE TYRRELL
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
MOVIE REVIEW

The brilliant Canadian film "Incendies" illuminates parts of the human condition otherwise consigned to darkness.

Director Denis Villeneuve's version of Wadji Mouawad's play "Scorched," more a sympathetic expansion than a simple adaptation, is one of the best films of 2010. At last, it is showing in cinemas around New Jersey.

This riveting drama combines the twists and clues of an Elmore Leonard detective tale with the brutality and striving of a Joseph Conrad colonial inquiry.
