    Exquisitely produced, excellent acting by all, especially Geoffrey Rush, Joaquin Phoenix and Kate Winslet. The costumes and sets are outstanding. However, I found it very talky and often tedious and I was downright bored at times. Yak yak yak yak.

    This is one of those movies that thinks it's saying something important when really it's not offering much of anything in the way of substance. Only strong performances from the cast (especially Rush) save the film from tedium.

    A savage comedy of sexual extremes; the barbed laughs draw blood.
  2. 80
    Occasionally becomes pretentious and shrill -- sometimes Mr. Wright isn't aware that his material is so good that he doesn't need to comment on his characters.
  3. Profane, sacrilegious, pornographic, sadistic and Sade-istic, titillating and the most honorable movie of the year.
