Rambling romance about a man truely in love with himself. Cilian Murphy has great talent, but not in this loser directed by Neil Jordan. My advice to Murphy...speak up and stop mumbling.
| Original Score: D
"Kitten" is one of the most admirable characters ever depicted on-screen.
Murphy's turn as the irrepressible Kitten is simply mesmerising - outrageous, tender and full of the sort of deep pain that no amount of make-up can conceal.
Another cross-dressing flick from Jordan, but this time with a wry sense of humour and whimsy, coupled with a fine soundtrack of UK bubblegum 70s tunes.
| Original Score: B
This is a long film that audiences will either love or dismiss.
Roaring with real life, Breakfast on Pluto belongs in that treasured subgenre, the gender bending memoir ...Cillian Murphy gives a career high performance as Kitten, so silky, so tough, so completely real that it haunts us.
Moderately entertaining fare.
| Original Score: C+
It may not have the epic scope and complexity of Forrest Gump, but Breakfast on Pluto a small gem.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Breakfast on Pluto is definitely one of the most unusual, compelling films I have seen in quite some time.
As played by Murphy in what is an excellent performance, Kitten is sort of like a transvestite superhero--able to overcome impossible situations and look fabulous while doing it.
| Original Score: B
Breakfast on Pluto's novelistic feel can seem disjointed, but ultimately the structure frees the film to flit from one interesting encounter to another with a minimum of connecting material.
An amusing little romp, with all the substance of cotton candy.
Jordan plays the Crying Game again for this darly affecting epic.
| Original Score: 3/5
It's awfully hard to take the material seriously, even though the plotting seems to demand it.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Murphy models his frocks comfortably enough, but 'Pluto is draggy in other, disappointing ways.
| Original Score: 2/4
Neil Jordan's Breakfast on Pluto bursts onto the screen ablaze with more color, more ideas, more nerve, more invention and more heart than just about anything imaginable.
| Original Score: 5/5
An offbeat fairytale populated by colorful characters and spot-on performances.
It could have easily been 15 minutes shorter. But you can understand why Jordan wanted to spend so much time with such a singular hero (heroine?) as Patrick.
| Original Score: 3/4
Enjoyable drama that's both darkly funny and emotionally engaging.
| Original Score: 4/5
