... the pacing of the film is slow enough to make the typical Merchant-Ivory production feel like a Nine Inch Nails video

Foster, I believe, sees right through this material and out the other side, and doesn't believe in a bit of it.

Like too many movies, this one cannot bear to end quietly and gracefully.

Handsome and well-appointed ... but still one of the most boring films in recent memory.

Anna and the King is eye-filling but brain-numbing.

In his big bid for Hollywood stardom, Chow lacks what gave him star power to begin with: an intensely masculine soul of fire and ice.

So unbelievably bloated that staring at Don King's hair is likely to have a more plausible payoff.

It's great to look at, but the unforgiving precision doesn't allow the images to advance the story or tell you details about characters or situations.

Anna and the King is scenic overkill, a travelogue in place of a witty and absorbing movie.

Anna and the King needs something to make it compelling, and a few songs certainly wouldn't hurt.
