Aria gives 10 filmmakers a chance to create vignettes set to well-known opera arias.

The best of the 10 segments is, perhaps predictably, the rare one without lofty pretensions.

Uneven compendium film. Russell, Temple, and Roddam are the best things. Goddard is the worst.

pretentious piffle that's pretty much one sour note after another

Seriously, do vanity projects like this really need to be made? Don't we all have better things to do?

I am not sure that any indispensable statement about opera has been made here, and purists will no doubt recoil by the irreverence of some of the images. But the film is fun almost as a satire of itself.

So diverse in nature that it can only be evaluated piecemeal

Is it worth watching a film composed of ten segments in order to appreciate three or four? It might not be worthwhile, but it would be a shame to miss Godard, Sturridge and Roddam's work.
