  1. A film of audacity and total gut-level appeal.
  2. Gorgeous in its gore and, for all its destruction, despair and death, concludes on an optimistic and vibrantly alive note.

    A spectacularly imaginative piece of Shakespearean cinema.
  4. 88
    A brilliant and absurd film of "Titus Andronicus" that goes over the top, doubles back and goes over the top again.
  5. 88
    Once you get used to the broad gestures, visual stylings and reach-for-the-sky emotions, you may find yourself luxuriating in this movie's undeniable grandeur.
  6. Visually brilliant and thought-provoking.
  7. 88
    Taymor conjures images that are as indelible as they are wordlessly articulate.
  8. Reviewed by: Don Kaye

    A surreal and visually dazzling smorgasbord of pageantry, high camp, tragedy, spectacle, and gore.

    Titus is a visually stunning film with one of Shakespeare's classic, when I saw this movie I thought it was kind of like a mix between Brazil, 300, and Titus the Shakespeare play. Since Im a fan of surrealism,I was really happy to see all these objects that don't go together in this movie, like video games and Roman temples, It made this movie feel like it came out of the mind of some one reading the Shakespeare script. The thing that brought this movie down was the gore,but its not the movies fault the play is one of Shakespeare's bloodiest work and the movie was doing its job well. However the bottom line is its a good movie. Full Review »
