Valentino is a disappointing film. It is about the tragic and untimely death of a silent screen actor, Rudolph Valentino, in 1926. Rudolf Nureyev and Leslie Caron give terrible performances. The screenplay is badly written. Ken Russell did a horrible job directing this motion picture.

This is one of the worst biopics. Mixing fiction, fact, and legend it fails. The acting is some of the worst I've ever seen in a film. Its overacted and extremely full of Hollywood cliches. The story is poorly written along with the script.

This movie will be enjoyed by Ken Russell fans only. However, despite the slow pace and over-the-top theatrics -- the film has some pop-culturally significant moments. The now iconic Rudolf Nureyev is captured in all of his beauty and glory. And, it is interesting to see Leslie Caron as Nazimova. Peter Suschitzky served as cinematographer and he does some great early work here. However, by the time this long film comes to its end, you are likely to feel more than a bit cheated of the over two hours the film stole from your life.

Far from Russell's best, but some inspired moments of madness. The jail scene is classic Russell. Nureyev couldn't act, but he sure could dance. Worth a watch for fans.

Watchable only for Nureyev.

It is pretty good movie except all the ham acting. It contains one of the most disturbing nude sex scenes ever along with Lady Frankenstein.
