Movie Reviews

St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 10/10 by Joe Williams Stylish and sly, an engaging exercise that gives us less than meets the eye.
Arizona Republic - 10/10 by Randy Cordova The story is twisted and complex, yet it emerges as sleek and unfussy. The characters' actions are grandly melodramatic, but the movie is close and intimate.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger Ebert Broken Embraces is a voluptuary of a film, drunk on primary colors, caressing Penelope Cruz, using the devices of a Hitchcock to distract us with surfaces while the sinister uncoils beneath.
Charlotte Weekly - 10/10 by Sean O'Connell Gives us few reasons not to stay to the ending, but the ultimate revelation of Blanco's pain ... disappoints.
Capital Times (Madison, WI) - 10/10 by Rob Thomas Above all, "Broken Embraces" shows how deeply Almodóvar is in love with movies, not just as things to be watched and enjoyed, but to be felt deep in the bones.
New York Press - 9/10 by Armond White Almodóvar lost his nerve when he acquired expensive technique. Inspired by Buñuel and De Palma, he used to match them. Now, his once underground satires are just expensive tearjerkers.
MovieFreak.com - 9/10 by Sara Michelle Fetters The filmmaker kept me continually off balance, my laughs having to find their way through a shower of tears all while the unyielding tension of the central mystery kept my insides twisting into tighter and tighter knots.
New York Post - 9/10 by Lou Lumenick That still makes Broken Embraces superior to at least 99 percent of the movies released in 2009. Run, don't walk.
Chicago Tribune - 9/10 by Michael Phillips Almodovar could've played it entirely for laughs, with a flick of his wrist and a tonal adjustment. It's best he didn't, though. The movie putters near the end, but it's a film lover's delight.
Sydney Morning Herald - 9/10 by Paul Byrnes Hypnotic beauty and emotion reveal the Spanish director to be still at the height of his powers.
Rolling Stone - 9/10 by Peter Travers Cruz exudes a sensual aura of mystery that holds you spellbound. And Almodóvar, a true poet of cinema, creates images -- horrifying and healing -- that live inside your head like a waking dream. You want to miss a movie like that? I didn’t think so.
At the Movies (Australia) - 9/10 by Margaret Pomeranz Even though it may not be Almodovar's best film, it is still eminently watchable and thoroughly enjoyable.
