Critic Reviews

  1. A great experience, precisely because it's so intimate and unguarded.
  2. Extraordinary labor of love.
  3. 90
    Has power not only as film scholarship, but as an inquiry into cinema's interplay with our collective memories and the nature of history itself.
  4. Reviewed by: Deborah Young

    Scorsese's heartfelt love letter to Italian movies up to 1961.
  5. There is no denying the passion or intelligence of this work, which is meant to be an encouragement to explore the films for ourselves rather than a dry history lesson. On that level, "Viaggio" fully succeeds.
  6. 70
    For most people, four hours pushes the outer comfort limits for theatrical viewing. My Voyage to Italy is well worth the time, but bringing along a thermos of espresso isn't a bad idea either.
