  1. The sides to consider in Taking Sides are all but obscured by cinematic pomposity at best, Holocaust porn at worst.
  2. 70
    The deep drawback of Taking Sides is that it forgets to be interested in music. [8 September 2003, p. 100]
  3. Taking Sides has a padded-out, stagebound quality that is anything but lyrical. And Szabó, a Hungarian best known for "Mephisto" and "Colonel Redl," is not at his best here.
