Incredibly disturbingWithout painting broad strokes of flagrant violence obscene language or the like Pinter still manages to create an environment of unparalleled menace His tools are simply language or rather what isn t said and layers of paradox that rise from a triumviri of inconsistent character behaviors statuses and conceptions of the pastWhile reading I found myself continually doubting the validity of what nearly every character did and said Did I mention this play is also incredibly funnyThough The Homecoming is a major mind warper in terms of characters behavior it s ultimately very transparent The facts are stated uite clearly it s simply unthinkable to the viewer that what s going on is unchallengedUnsurprisingly critics lambasted The Homecoming for various reasons my favorite being its amorality and thematic ambiguity I mean how can a play be so riveting yet still make you ask what was the point of that story Pinter s a uniue talent who will certainly be missed
