  • Summary: A coming-of-age story about a young, reclusive prop-house employee (Pitt) who falls in love with a detail-obsessed movie production designer (Turco).

  1. For all its visual zaniness and its aura of psychic imbalance, the movie, which won the Discovery Award at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, stays on the surface and never locates its own heart of darkness.
  2. 60
    The surprise is how utterly original his (Woodley's) gorgeously mounted curiosity seems.
  3. Oddly bereft of scares or tension, the film is mainly notable for its sustained atmosphere of weirdness.
  4. 50
    Manages to create a creepy atmosphere, even if the plot itself is somewhat unfocused and the scares scarce.
  5. There are some good ideas buried beneath the grotesque whimsy, and several animated sequences are modestly clever. But Pitt's mannered performance will inspire nothing but a run to the video store, in search of a real Burton.
  6. 40
    Live by the meta-movie rules, die by the meta-movie rules: Rhinoceros Eyes is a parable on cine-enchantment that itself fails to enchant.
  7. Reviewed by: David Rooney
    Not sufficiently compelling.
