Critic Reviews of "Hunger (2008)"Chicago ReaderApril 17, 2009
Midway through the movie there's an epic 24-minute scene...in the claustrophobic cell block the protesters have already internalized their cause so deeply that the world of words seems distant and inconsequential.Chicago TribuneApril 17, 2009
It's a strength of this carefully composed, almost obsessively controlled picture that it has no interest in the conventional biographical focus on a subject.Philadelphia InquirerApril 16, 2009
Hunger is daunting and powerful work.Chicago Sun-TimesApril 16, 2009
Hunger is not about the rights and wrongs of the British in Northern Ireland, but about inhumane prison conditions, the steeled determination of IRA members like Bobby Sands, and a rock and a hard place.Globe and MailApril 10, 2009
Hunger -- the disturbing, provocative, brilliant feature debut from British director Steve McQueen -- does for modern film what Caravaggio did to Renaissance painting.Toronto StarApril 10, 2009
Relying on images more than words, it's a plea for humanity in times of insanity.Tiny Mix TapesDecember 12, 2015
There is no attempt to set Sands up as a great martyr, no Jesus pose or sentimental music to manipulate emotions. Hunger is interested in none of this. Instead, [McQueen] lets the bodies that sacrificed themselves tell the story they created.New StatesmanNovember 02, 2015
The stylistic palette of McQueen's picture, and its grasp of cinematic vocabulary, elevate the film to a purely visceral realm, so that it seems to bypass your eyes and ears and go straight for your nerve endings.Critic's NotebookOctober 07, 2015
Mr. Sands's story loosely serves as a framework that joins together a series of filmic gallery installations that graphically explore the fragility of the human body.Stop SmilingAugust 02, 2015
McQueen thus succeeds in manufacturing a palpable intensity (some of it very difficult to watch), but retreats into individual subjectivity when it might do better to open out into the larger political arena.ArtforumJune 01, 2015
In such extreme circumstances, the human body may be the last desperate frontier of protest. Hunger makes this all too clear.2UE That Movie ShowJanuary 21, 2013
In the desolate surrounds of a prison environment that affronts humanity McQueen finds the redemptive struggles, and unrelenting spirit in the feces smeared walls of a British prison.
