Movie Reviews

Arizona Daily Star - 10/10 by Phil Villarreal Vittorio Storaro, who won an Oscar for his cinematography, keeps the long film moving at a healthy pace, mixing static shots with subtle camera movement, never showing off or detracting from the story. - 10/10 by Chris Cabin It's tragic that more American filmmakers aren't taking risks like this at a time like this.
Kalamazoo Gazette - 10/10 by James Sanford an epic love story ... As a teenager I saw it four times in the theater (which I now find pretty astonishing, considering the movie is well more than three hours long -- I had a lot more free time in 1981!)
Washington Post - 10/10 by Judith Martin It is occasionally rambling and repetitious, but nearly always intelligent and engrossing.
The New York Times - 10/10 by Vincent Canby Reds is an extraordinary film, a big romantic adventure movie, the best since David Lean's ''Lawrence of Arabia,'' as well as a commercial movie with a rare sense of history.
Rolling Stone - 10/10 by Michael Sragow Not since Lawrence of Arabia has there been a serious historical movie of this sweep, complexity and intelligence.
Chicago Reader - 10/10 by Dave Kehr Warren Beatty's shapely 1981 epic, based on the life of radical journalist John Reed, is a stunningly successful application of a novelistic aesthetic—a film that makes full and thoughtful use of its three-and-a-half-hour length to develop characters, ideas, and motifs with a depth seldom seen in movies.
Newsweek - 9/10 by David Ansen As for Beatty, Reds is his bravura turn. He got the idea, nurtured it for a decade, found the financing, wrote most of the script, produced, and directed and starred and still found enough artistic detachment to make his Reed into a flawed, fascinating enigma instead of a boring archetypal hero. I liked this movie. I felt a real fondness for it.
The Guardian - 9/10 by Alex von Tunzelmann An engrossing, beautifully filmed and remarkably balanced portrait of a fascinating moment in history, cleverly enhanced by the intercutting of real-life documentary interviews. Reds is everything a historian could want in a movie. - 9/10 by Steve Crum Epic telling of Communism roots via Warren Beatty.
The A.V. Club - 9/10 by Kenji Fujishima It’s a stylistic throwback as well: an old-fashioned, star-studded, big-budget historical epic with an intermission, filmed in a classical style that hearkens back in some ways to David Lean’s Lawrence Of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago.
Low IQ Canadian - 8/10 by Martin Scribbs Hey, hey, I saved the world today. A movie about the burdens that fall on those who take big ideas seriously.
