About the Event
R. 3hr26min. Enormous in runtime, theme, and achievement, Killers of the Flower Moon is a sobering appraisal of America's relationship with Indigenous peoples and yet another artistic zenith for Martin Scorsese and his collaborators.
Based on David Grann's broadly lauded best-selling book, "Killers of the Flower Moon" is set in 1920s Oklahoma and depicts the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation, a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the Reign of Terror.
Peter Travers ABC News: Out of a dark chapter of history about U.S. mistreatment of Native Americans, Martin Scorsese directs a new movie classic with stupendous acting from DiCaprio, DeNiro and newcomer Lily Gladstone. It's a great movie from our greatest filmmaker. See it now!
Brian Tallerico RogerEbert.com: "Scorsese walks that fine line between telling a very specific story of a couple at the heart of a tragedy and commenting on the larger nature of evil."
David Sims The Atlantic: "De Niro is magnificently unsettling in the film -- it might be the best work he’s done with Scorsese since Goodfellas -- but the emotional powerhouses are DiCaprio and Gladstone.
David Rooney Hollywood Reporter: "The three-and-a-half-hour running time is fully justified in an escalating tragedy that never loosens its grip -- a sordid illustration of historical erasure with echoes in today’s bitterly divisive political gamesmanship."
David Fear Rolling Stone: "[A picture] brimming with reverence for a culture that survived a horrible trauma as it is filled with exhilarating flourishes, film history references, and explorations of the faultline between the sacred and profane. And yes: It’s a masterpiece.
