Movie Reviews

Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers - 10/10 by Steve Crum Coming near the close of a summer full of movie superheroes and remakes, 'The Illusionist' is a film buff's treat. Here is an atmospheric, period tale of magic and murder.
ReelTalk Movie Reviews - 10/10 by Donald J. Levit Most viewers will enjoy the fun of being rewardingly beguiled by 'The Illusionist.'
Worcester Telegram & Gazette - 10/10 by Daniel M. Kimmel The reason to see it is to see two fine American actors at the top of their game, and the lush production values... which make you feel you've entered a lost world.
Salon.com - 10/10 by Stephanie Zacharek I have vague recollections of some of the actors' trying too hard, and of places where the story dragged like a tired peacock's tail. But ultimately, by God, I succumbed to the picture's faux-laudanum haze.
New York Post - 10/10 by Lou Lumenick Deserved an end-of-the-year prestige release, is a true work of art in a marketplace filled with velvet paintings. It's positively magical, the reason we loved movies in the first place.
RogerEbert.com - 9/10 by Jim Emerson A coolly entertaining turn-of-the-century fable.
Houston Chronicle - 9/10 by Bruce Westbrook For a film about magic, The Illusionist doesn't depend on tricks up its sleeve. It's more about artfulness, from handsome period details and Philip Glass' urgent score to an intriguing and vibrant plot.
Laramie Movie Scope - 9/10 by Robert Roten A lush period film with great production values, a clever story and excellent acting performances.
Toronto Star - 9/10 by Peter Howell This terrific romantic thriller, set in 1900 Vienna, is an outstanding example of frugality in the service of art.
ReviewExpress.com - 9/10 by Diana Saenger One of the best films to hit theaters this year %u2013 Neil Burger's direction delivers a tale that is magic from beginning to end.
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA) - 9/10 by Linda Cook There's nothing fake about "The Illusionist," a quietly beautiful, fascinating mystery set in the past.
Supercala.com - 9/10 by John Venable An amazing team of talent both in front of and behind the camera stretch a short story into a romantic fairy tale for adults that works.
