Movie Reviews

Boston Globe - 10/10 by Wesley Morris This is a love letter from one auteur to another that doesn't feel like a term paper. Instead, Far From Heaven is an honest-to-God drama with resonance all its own.
Chicago Reader - 10/10 by Jonathan Rosenbaum This brilliantly and comprehensively captures the look, feel, and sound of glamorous 50s tearjerkers like All That Heaven Allows, not to mock or feel superior to them but to say new things with their vocabulary.
Los Angeles Times - 10/10 by Manohla Dargis The film's three leads are extraordinary, but what Moore does with her role is so beyond the parameters of what we call great acting that it nearly defies categorization.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 10/10 by Steven Rea The movie is, start to finish, candy-colored angst.
New York Post - 10/10 by Lou Lumenick Perhaps the year's most daring and fully realized movie, is a pitch-perfect re-creation of '50s melodramas, showcasing a four-hankie performance by a peroxided Julianne Moore.
The New York Times - 10/10 by Dana Stevens It rediscovers the aching, desiring humanity in a genre -- and a period-- too often subjected to easy parody or ironic appropriation. In a word, it's divine.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger Ebert Julianne Moore, Dennis Quaid and Dennis Haysbert are called on to play characters whose instincts are wholly different from their own. By succeeding, they make their characters real, instead of stereotypes.
Chicago Tribune - 10/10 by Michael Wilmington There's an incongruous but ravishing beauty in Far From Heaven, and in its three excellent central performances, that counteracts the seeming kitschiness of the story.
Christian Science Monitor - 10/10 by David Sterritt Easily the best American film so far this year, Far From Heaven is close to perfect.
Salon.com - 10/10 by Andrew O'Hehir A movie for hardcore film geeks and regular folk alike, a stunning, and stunningly improbable, fusion of postmodern pastiche and old-school Hollywood melodrama. It's both a marvelous technical accomplishment and a tragic love story that sweeps you off your feet.
New York Daily News - 9/10 by Jack Mathews May be the year's most derivative film, but it's also the most original.
ReelViews - 9/10 by James Berardinelli Begins almost as a nostalgic excursion, but quickly detours into a powerful and telling story that examines forbidden love, racial tension, and other issues that are as valid today as they were in the 1950s.
