Movie Reviews

Chicago Tribune - 8/10 by Michael WilmingtonThrobbing with music, seething with anger and romance, The Lost City is a film that breaks your heart, bewilders, alienates and ravishes you by turns.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger EbertThe movie evokes that long-ago world carefully and with a certain poetry; it was shot in the Dominican Republic. There is a lot of music, much of it from the period and performed by the same musicians or their successors.
Washington Post - 7/10 by Stephen HunterSome of the tropes of The Lost City are ineffective. What does work is the sense of loss. The late Cuban novelist and screenwriter G. Cabrera Infante finds a brilliant device in the love affair between Fico and Aurora (Ines Sastre), his sister-in-law, in that Aurora in some way becomes Cuba.
Christian Science Monitor - 7/10 by Peter RainerWhat keeps the film watchable, aside from the vibrant musical numbers in the nightclub, is Garcia's obvious love for the Cuba of his ancestors, of his dreams. A lot goes wrong in this overlong movie, but it has a human touch.
Baltimore Sun - 7/10 by Michael SragowWatching The Lost City is like falling into a delirious dream on a marathon train ride only to be roused every 15 minutes by a conductor punching your ticket or barking out the next stop.
The Hollywood Reporter - 6/10 by Sheri LindenA handsome production but one that struggles to integrate its various elements -- cabaret-society glamour, intellectual fervor, family drama, impossible romance and droll humor.
Chicago Reader - 5/10 by Jonathan RosenbaumGarcia seems to be aping the "Godfather" movies and Warren Beatty's "Reds," but the movie's gracefulness is limited to its handling of the music (some of which Garcia wrote).
San Francisco Chronicle - 5/10 by Mick LaSalleThe story may be scattered and sagging and the picture may have little emotional impact -- certainly nothing to justify the epic running time -- but Garcia at least succeeds in making Havana in the 1950s seem like a vibrant, special place. He doesn't exactly make the audience care, but he does make the audience understand why he cares, and that's something.
Entertainment Weekly - 5/10 by Owen GleibermanThough the filmmaker's feel for his Cuban heritage is bone-deep, it's a glazed and dolorous movie - a depressed epic.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 5/10 by Sean AxmakerFor all the color and lively music, it's an overlong, messy labor of love built on a sense of personal betrayal that rings hollow.
