    An independent film so enamored of itself it refuses to have any fun.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 G. Allen Johnson
    Cholodenko's strategy of having the actors, in every scene -- whether it involves Lucy, the boyfriend or the Frame editors -- perform with an intonational flatness approaching monotone pretentiously undermines the effectiveness of her subject matter.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 G. Allen Johnson
    The film is undeniably energetic, with a lot of good lines written by Shores, but it descends into obvious preachiness, and from this view, the unrelenting wackiness becomes overwhelming. Still, good times are had by all.

    Like sitting on the beach under a cozy, warm afternoon sun. The view is beautiful, but not much is happening and soon you drift peacefully to sleep.

    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 G. Allen Johnson
    For a documentary about one of the most prestigious opera institutions in the world, The Paris Opera has, maddeningly, very little opera.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 G. Allen Johnson
    It's a movie drenched in narcissism and wish-fulfillment, almost a textbook on how to make a formulaic, romantic film.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 G. Allen Johnson
    The problem with Birth of the Dragon, George Nolfiā€™s largely fictionalized account of a 1964 fight between an Oakland martial arts instructor named Bruce Lee and San Francisco instructor Wong Jack Man is that Lee...is the third-most important character in the film.
    • 33 Metascore

    Competent, to be sure, with some good lines.
