Carnage (2011)

From a theater play to movie theater, Polanski grabs 4 great actors to play two couples who have a meeting in order to have a smiley talk about their children who had a fight at school. Carnage feels like a sitcom and acts as one. The movie's short 79 minutes are all developed in real time on the same place, adding to that feel. Carnage is not ambitious and it does not pretend to be. It is a very simple comedy movie, wonderfully written, that will surely make you laugh and say "that escalated quickly". Jodie Foster, Christoph Waltz, Kate Winslet and John C. Reilly all have perfect and equally hilarious interpretations of four different urban stereotypes. Unfortunately some audience won't like Carnage because of its lack of variety and classic theater play style, which will make you think that this could be done easily as a tv sitcom episode like Friends or Seinfeld. But after all, it is what it is: an almost direct transportation of a play to cinema, and that alone brings many fragilities, even tough it can be very funny if its style is accepted.
