We're finally making all the stops as far as the slate of films premiering at Venice, and Roman Polanski's new drama has now begun to reveal itself. You can't really expect much of a wide scope coming from something based off a stage production. You can usually expect some strong performances, and while Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly are average as usual, Christoph Waltz and especially Kate Winslet are getting the heap of deserved attention. Winslet usually excels at playing such drastically unstable characters, with "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Revolutionary Road" as two major examples. "Carnage" could give her a strong Supporting Actress bid.
