Youth Without Youth Reviews

Youth Without Youth proves that Francis Ford Coppola can still make a movie, but not that he still knows how to choose his projects.

Too much of the film is a muddle, and it feels like work, not play.

Mr. Coppola is one of the cinema's peerless masters, and I would have enjoyed nothing more than a chance to celebrate his new film. I'm truly sorry to say, then, that I found it impenetrable.

Virtually every scene is suitable for framing, if not necessarily for watching.

A a slick-looking but frustrating hodgepodge of sci-fi, political thriller, period drama and metaphysical romance with heavy overtones of Eastern philosophy. Confused yet?

A work of stunning inertia and obtuseness, Francis Ford Coppola's return to the director's chair is a disaster of career-destroying proportions...

Nick Schager
Slant Magazine

The director treats his material as if it were Last Year at Marienbad, yet his story's particulars are too goofy and too incompatible to result in something haunting or beguiling.

This is the perfect example of what can happen when a producer/director/writer doesn't have to answer to anyone. Coppola makes an artistic mess.

A stilted and inelegant work, well below par for Francis Ford Coppola

It often feels like a dream -- specifically, someone else's, a nonlinear, illogical synapse explosion that's always fascinating to the person in whose head it detonated but not so much to those experiencing it secondhand.

With all the nurses making moves on the suicidal old codger's renovated physique, Coppola's Youth Without Youth comes across as somewhere between The Godfather On Viagra and Apocalypse Then, Redux.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A boondoggle so obnoxious in concept and execution that it's hard to see why [Coppola] thought that it might be a good idea to try filming it in the first place.

I don't want to say this thing is complicated, but Tom Stoppard just called to beg for an explanation.... I apologize for all the elements I'm leaving out, but my editor ordered me to keep this piece under 40 million words.

Coppola may be back, but he's a long way from being back on form.

Francis Coppola's gasping adaptation of Mircea Eliade's out-of-print novella should provide the tipping point at which audiences start avoiding the exasperated genre of magical realism that crept into modern film vernacular with a vengeance.

Unless you're interested solely in strikingly beautiful photography there's nothing very satisfying about Youth Without Youth.

An incomprehensible, pretentious, meandering mess -- so self-serious, it's laughable.

The craftsmanship is undeniably polished. It's just too bad the story is so plodding and pretentious.

I'm all for bold screwiness, but this provocation seems labored despite the striking images.

Coppola drags everyone on a humourless trudge through a jungle of pretension that will have most moviegoers glazing over long before an ending that really isn't worth the wait.

A classic example of the "what-was-he-thinking?" movie, Youth Without Youth unfolds in a sort of formal dream state devoid of day-to-day normalcy.
