Marat Sade Reviews
July 5, 2012
One of the few musicals I have really enjoyed. Fun, gross, bawdy and outrageous.

I can't comprehend some of the reviews I have seen. "Not worth your time' is not and I repeat not an appropriate way to discuss this masterpiece. It is a transformation of stage to screen in incredible fashion, instead of attempting to turn a play into a movie Brook puts you in the position of the ideal spectator of the stage, as if you could walk over and observe the actor's every wrinkle stretch and compress as they release amazing lines that came out of Adrian Mitchell's adaptation. I will comment no more as "you must choose" what the film is and what it should do for you, however it is my opinion that only a closed and ignorant mind should reject this movie, for even if you do not like it, I believe you should accept it for not trying to be anything it's not. Enjoy.

En pocas ocasiones una pelicula teatro/musical toca temas historicos con singular acierto, con actuaciones sobresalientes y con arreglos musicales que permiten al espectador deleitarse en cada momento. Se ve la mano del gran director de teatro Peter Brook que no lo hace mal ante la camara.

I suppose it was innovative in 1967, but I can think of few films that have bored me more. It was torture getting through this pretentious mess. I don't care if it is the Royal Shakespeare Company doing it, or whether it is historically significant, boring is boring

Here's another film rating.

Marat/Sade, a Peter Brook's film is nothing special. At times it seems to try to hard to be funny, be really isn't. It shows the play that an insane asylum has put on for the sponsors. This play shows Jean Paul Marat's last day's. I strongly recommend not watching this movie. The acting is the only thing special i can think of. The storyline was quite boring, and i wasn't even remotely interested in the dialogue to understand this movie. Sure there were some funny scenes, but that takes up maybe 10 minutes of this entire 2 hour film. Why this was made? I cannot say but once again stay clear of this, it is not worth your time.
