  1. A big, silly movie about the famed goatish painter that stars the nearly perfect Anthony Hopkins.

    This movie is a dreary endurance test.
  3. Not a movie that needs to exist, but it passes the time, and at least Hopkins manages to look like Picasso at odd moments.

    Producer Ismail Merchant, director James Ivory and screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala bring the customary polish, but no pizzazz, to this simplistic portrait of the artist as a dirty old man.

    Surviving Picasso falters in its careless structure.
