Movie Reviews

Only If You Love Venice...
Grady Harp | Los Angeles, CA United States | 08/12/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Mike Figgis makes a supersized attempt to be artsy in this meandering film. The problem is that the story is so flat because there is no one about whom we can care. After the first confusing messy thirty minutes (John Malkovich sitting behind prison bars at a dinner table for no apparent reason other than to offer insipid dialogue to an uncaring dinner guest list), I decided to just look at the screen for the color and the wild camera work. Venice looks great but the stodgy staging of 'The Duchess of Malfi' and the weak plot associated with it doesn't even begin to cover the creaks in this silly film. This one is only for the Figgis fans out there - and for Venice addicts who will put up with about anything to just 'feel' the Venetian glow. A Must Miss. Grady Harp, August 05"

"Amazon should perhaps consider minus-star ratings. I hope I shall never see a worse movie. This mess lost me about 20 IQ points. Without a doubt, the worst film I've ever suffered through. However, it's David Schwimmer's best performance. Amazon: Please allow minus-stars for such awful, indulgent pieces of ca-ca. And Roger Ebert's quote on the case cover was indicative of reviewers on the take: BOLD, FUNNY, DELIGHTFUL!
(And now it's 12:2 in favor of awful... )"

"The description on the movie jacket is totally misleading. It is not thrilling and it is not terrifying. The only scene of Venice you will see is St. Mark's Square. All-star cast? Yup, and I suppose they made the best of it, but then if I was paid big bucks to spend some time in Venice I would too... A horrible movie! A waste of 1hr. 51minutes."

"Wow, I made myself watch this movie to give myself a reason, hopefully by the end, a plot. Wanting it to have had a message at least. The longer I watched the madder I got at myself. It made me think of a long bad dream."
