Movie Reviews

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.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 10/10 by Joe Williams Stylish and sly, an engaging exercise that gives us less than meets the eye.
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.
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.
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.
Chicago Tribune - 9/10 by Michael Phillips 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.
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.
Reel Talk Online - 9/10 by Candice Frederick ... Broken Embraces is a well-written story of a love so precious it hurt.
Wall Street Journal - 9/10 by Joe Morgenstern Mr. Almodóvar's love of movies informs every frame of this beautiful film. When Harry's fingers explore the dotted landscape of a Braille script, they bespeak the writer's unbroken embrace of language and drama.
Salon.com - 9/10 by Stephanie Zacharek This really is Cruz's movie: Almodóvar is her North Star -- following his lead, she's always found her surest and most graceful footing as an actress.
San Francisco Examiner - 9/10 by Rossiter Drake The beauty of Broken Embraces is the joy Almodóvar brings to his storytelling. The movie is as personal and rewarding a contribution to his remarkable body of work as All About My Mother and Talk to Her.
