disappointing. Turgid writing. Roth walks through part.
17 October 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

I caught this film when it was was screened at DSS-IFF in Spain last week. i'm a fan of Tim Roth, my mom was a classical trained musician, and I was genuinely optimistic about Song of Names. I was disappointing. This is quite a poorly done work. Another user reviwer here said the ending was "shocking." No it is not, it is predictable. In fact the entire film is a endless run of cliche.
