Movie Reviews

New York Times - 8/10 by Janet MaslinThe best of the 10 segments is, perhaps predictably, the rare one without lofty pretensions.
Spirituality and Practice - 6/10 by Frederic and Mary Ann BrussatAria gives 10 filmmakers a chance to create vignettes set to well-known opera arias.
User Review - 10/10 by Meg GGiving some of the best directors their chance to act out their screen fantasies to beautiful arias? The resulting works are phenomenal - and frightening, in some cases, truly dark.
User Review - 10/10 by Paul SIt's difficult to know how to rate this movie since it is really a collection of short films, some great and some awful. I've decided on five stars merely because one of the vignettes in it really is five stars. Having seen many of Derek Jarman's films now, I would rank him as one of the world's most sensitive directors, if not one of the greats. If only he'd lived longer and achieved his potential. His short film in this collection, accompanied by Charpentier's Depuis Le Jour, is not only the best of the bunch, it is probably the best short film I've ever seen. It features an aged prima donna looking back on her life and realizing she had a pretty good time. It was very comforting to me who though not afraid of dying is afraid of aging. The others are a mixed bag. Ken Russell's is much like his other feature films in that it's worth watching but probably not worth while. Franc Roddam's, to Wagner's Liebestod, is nice because it seems somewhat inspired by the opera it's based on. Julien Temple's, too, is inspired by some of the themes in Rigoletto, albeit taking a much lighter tone. In fact Temple's is probably the most avant garde of the bunch as everyone else, upon hearing they should make a short film to aria interpreted it as make an art film, while Temple's is a screwball comedy. Easily the worst of the bunch is Godard's Armide, which I suggest skipping as it takes one idea and extends it interminably. Altman's too is quite a yawner. But I recommend to anyone for the films I've mentioned. And as I say, it should be required viewing for any Jarman fans.
User Review - 10/10 by Brian CThere are lovely visuals and lots of true emotions, and especially the Bridgette Fonda scene stays with me.
User Review - 10/10 by Pavandeep SAn amazing masterpiece. Beautiful and entrancing. Each section brought out something unique to the series. The Godard one was spectacular, I was amazed at the way he used his characters to portray ore and the other, some by directors I'm not familiar with, was spectacular as well and the music was magnificent. Aazing shots and beautiful stories.
User Review - 10/10 by Brian PGREAT music n awesome directs, just the perfect match. EVERY short is unique. WATCH it no matter what.
User Review - 10/10 by Brandon SIt starts out mild enough, but in the later parts it becomes so emotionally acute as to seem other worldly. Yet the stories have to do with worldly matters: love, longing, despair, death. Love it!
User Review - 8/10 by BellaRay ?Watch out for Nessum dorma and Tristan und Isolde. Leontyne is marvellous. Some of the others could have been more original stories but all in all a very good movie.
User Review - 8/10 by Robert IThere's something for everyone. I liked almost all of them. Ken Russel, Charles Sturrige and Franc Roddam pieces were fantastic. Derek Jarman visually stunning too. Good stuff.
