    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Simply awful. The acting is so bad, and Tom Hulce's performance in particular, this movie is unbearable to watch. Who came up with his ridiculous giggle ? The costumes do not match the acting, which makes this entire enterprise a really bad comedy, almost like a slapstick, but one that misses the mark completely. Full Review »

    One word: Brilliant! It is in my top 10...do I need to say more? You have to watch it, that is the only way you can make up your mind! ForgetOne word: Brilliant! It is in my top 10...do I need to say more? You have to watch it, that is the only way you can make up your mind! Forget about the reviews, go and experience this movie yourself! My son watched it for the first time when he was 10 ( 4 years ago) and guess what he did after we watched it together? He went to internet to learn more about Mozart and his biography. He fell in love with Amadeus! Milos Forman inspired him! I think that tells you a lot about the value of this film. In Amadeus, the cinematography, scenography, costumes, plot, etc, are perfect! I couldn't recommend it more! Full Review »
