81% Broken Embraces (2009) Broken Embraces moves us with flashes of real beauty. But somehow, instead of setting up house in our memory it departs quickly and lightly when it is done. - The New York Review of Books EDIT

63% Evita (1996) After all the painstaking verisimilitude the movie neglects its characters. Evita the woman shrinks. It's the background we react to-especially the crowd, with its power to applaud or boo. - The New York Review of Books EDIT
