    Sublime in every way and constantly enthralling. Brilliant, beautiful acting from the leads and wonderful direction. I admit, having no prior knowledge of Diane Arbus and not expecting to learn about her from this movie may be a helpful way to approach it, but I found it nothing but evocative, moving and sensual.

    Whether you know a lot or a little about the life and art of photographer Diane Arbus, Shainberg's film is a wonderful fairy tale version of what could have been her artistic awakening. Both Kidman and Downey Jr. are superb in their roles as archetypes and fragile humans discovering the true nature of love. Stays with you long after the credits are over.

    Sublime. At the moment, film makers are ahead of film criticism.

    Downey makes something lively, sexy and moving out of a role that's just a thin concept. But the movie feels like it's still in the darkroom.
  2. Fur is a misfire by the talented people who four years ago gave us "Secretary," whose tongue-in-cheek approach might have served this film better, taking the edge off much of its pretensions.

    Picture is impressively crafted and acted but far too narrowly and benignly conceived to satisfy even on its own terms.
