Critic Reviews for Illusion
There's a sincerity to the filmmaking here that's at times quite touching: Illusion presents a portrait of true love that's as picture perfect as the sunny spring garden in which we see Isabelle.
Douglas does his best acting while watching and reacting to what he sees on screen. If this ends up being his cinematic swan song, it will not have been a bad way to go.
No doubt the director worked with what he could get, and was extremely fortunate that he could get an icon of the screen to bless his project.
One of the worst dramas I have ever seen. In fact, this movie is so dramatically inept that I wanted to tear my eyeballs out.
Unavoidably, there are some sugary moments and clichés such as rain-soaked kisses and outlandish "artistic" stage performances, but [Illusion] keeps hold of that just-another-day-in-Hollywood feeling.
Audience Reviews for Illusion
This movie blew my mind. It shows that the old lions of Hollywood still can show the young pups about acting. The director of this movie has such a fearless vision and there were times when I winced because of it. That's a good thing for me as movies nowadays hold very few suprises for me.
I love this movie! It is one of my all time favorites. I love it becasue the script is awsome. It's tight and deep and addresses the thoughts of anyone who did not have a relationship sith a parent.
