Movie Reviews

New Yorker - 10/10 by David Denby The more far-fetched the idea, it seems, the more strenuous the effort to pass it off as authentic.
AALBC.com - 10/10 by Kam Williams All the fixins for a convoluted, costume drama of, dare I say it, Shakespearean proportions.
ComingSoon.net - 9/10 by Edward Douglas A glorious revelation of a film that could very well be considered Roland Emmerich's Moulin Rouge!
Kansas City Star - 9/10 by Jon Niccum Overlong, labyrinthine and most certainly speculative in its history, "Anonymous" benefits from a central conceit that is too intriguing to be dismissed.
Observer (UK) - 9/10 by Philip French The American screenwriter John Orloff may have wished for a muse of fire, but unfortunately he's been given an ear of cloth, and his film would hardly pass muster as a sixth-form end-of-term romp.
Newark Star-Ledger - 9/10 by Stephen Whitty Like vermin, facts here are banished / Logic dispelled, plain motives all vanished ...
ABC Radio Brisbane - 9/10 by Matthew Toomey Perhaps there is an element of truth in this tale but director Roland Emmerich makes it very hard to believe with this muddled story.
Toronto Star - 9/10 by Peter Howell Anonymous is so dubious in its intent and so tangled in its execution, it might have worked better as a comedy like Notting Hill or The Boat That Rocked, where Ifans could agreeably play the fool as before.
Reeling Reviews - 9/10 by Laura Clifford ...other than Ifans' soulful, weathered performance all that's really notable is Emmerich's backdrops.
ColeSmithey.com - 9/10 by Cole Smithey Creaking narrative construction succumbs to gigantic cracks of exposition and a maze of disjointed flashbacks in Roland Emmerich's disastrous attempt at demystifying the identity of the Bard.
Examiner.com - 9/10 by Jeff Beck It may be one of the signs of the apocalypse, but thanks to a well-written screenplay, spot-on performances, and a fantastic production design, Emmerich has finally made a great film.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert Because of the ingenious screenplay by John Orloff, precise direction by Roland Emmerich and the casting of memorable British actors, you can walk into the theater as a blank slate, follow and enjoy the story, and leave convinced - if of nothing else - that Shakespeare was a figure of compelling interest.
