We Got This Covered

The film is beautifully photographed and incredibly effective. Holding it all together is a brilliant central performance by Javier Bardem.

This bloated drama is redeemed by its focus of a man caught between two distinctive and memorable worlds.

Ugliness as "art."

Bardem and Ińárritu draw you in to a story that says so much about not only its individual characters but also of life, exile, love, family and death.

Aaron Yap

Unwatchable without Javier Bardem's affecting, devastatingly committed performance, Biutiful plunges the viewer into a shapeless, sprawling character study that functions as nothing less than a punishing reminder of how rotten the universe can be.

Even though this movie piles it on, I can see its positive values and the potential it would have to reach the hearts of its audience.

Bardem faultless, Inarritu not so much

Excellent performance by Javier Bardem lifts a movie that often drags.

Biutiful is an exploration of fatherhood, guilt, culpability and mortality.

It's The Human Centipede for people who think they're too fancy for The Human Centipede.

The Age (Australia)

Javier Bardem was Oscar-nominated for his performance and the film got a nod for best foreign-language film, but don't let that fool you; it's a stodgy, self-important slog.

Matt's Movie Reviews

The fleeting line between life and death is explored in Biutiful, a well acted yet depressing portrayal of a man in purgatory.

This cinematic journey of one man along the boundaries of life and death is an extraordinary work of genius.

David Stratton
At the Movies (Australia)

The film, whatever its intentions, winds up just being deeply depressing and, at nearly 2 1/2 hours, it's a very long slog indeed to the finish.

What a film! Javier Bardem has always been impressive and convincing, but he's never been better than this.

Urban Cinefile

The film seems ponderous, weighed down and elongated by an overactive poetic sensibility

Urban Cinefile

A towering performance from Javier Bardem is the leading light in this poetic tragedy from director Alejandro González Ińárritu in which a man finds redemption in the quagmire of his life

The Vine

Simultaneously intensely personal and profoundly universal, Biutiful shows there can be grace, and yes, even beauty in death.

Simon Miraudo

What to say of ... a hard going, unpleasant film with a disconcerting undercurrent of xenophobia that is impeccably performed and (mostly) well crafted? ... No, seriously, I'm asking for your help.
