Set this film alongside Gran Torino and it's evident that Eastwood is the most impressive classical director working in US cinema today.

Stranger than fiction %u2026. and more powerful for it

Changeling is unforgettable; for its extraordinary story, for Angelina Jolie's haunting performance, for its subtly beautiful cinematography, for Clint Eastwood's masterful filmmaking

Adota uma estrutura equivocada que o torna infinitamente mais longo do que o ideal, enfraquecendo ambas as tramas ao jamais explorá-las adequadamente.

Changeling offers powerful performance and storyline that won't leave you dissatisfied.

December 30, 2008
Eastwood and Jolie take their time trying to draw a realistic and complex character sketch, which runs at odds with the hyped-up surroundings and circumstances.

Frankly, if Clint Eastwood added some arias, this might've made a pretty good opera.

Its story is not easily forgotten.

A compelling, adult period thriller, with an Oscar-assured performance from Angelina Jolie.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
November 28, 2008
It's a tough movie but also rewarding and inspiring: something of a quiet triumph.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/6
November 28, 2008
A handsome but slack, long-winded retelling of an admittedly fantastic real-life case that displays Eastwood at his least effective. Jolie is fine in an award-bait role but she'll probably be going to the Oscars alone.

November 28, 2008
Changeling, like Letters from Iwo Jima before it, is a mature, thoughtful and sometimes brutal movie that casts a cold eye on the past while sending shivers through the present.

November 28, 2008
What a bold, virile, operatic piece of film-making from this 78-year-old director. He is now well into a remarkable late period, and I sense we ain't seen nothing yet.

November 28, 2008
Changeling fails because, despite its awful subject matter, it isn't very moving. Eastwood is too classical, too restrained a director to get inside his characters; they feel like well-costumed showroom dummies.
November 28, 2008
Jolie looks every inch the star, but as with Joan Crawford or Ingrid Bergman, gives a believable and shining performance despite her beauty, while Malkovich hasn't been this good in years.

Eastwood's own score aids and abets the process, ladling washes of mournful gloop over a glut of emotional scenes.

I'm always wary of that overused word 'masterpiece', but this is one film that deserves the accolade.

You will never see a film which so well proves the adage that fact is stranger than fiction.

November 28, 2008
The bigger the scene, as melodrama intensifies in this movie, the more its truth-based tale turns into grand guignol on the griddle.
November 28, 2008
There are so many hints of a really good film lurking here that at times it feels as if the real article has been stolen away, an inferior knock-off put in its place. Heck, I'll settle for the one I've got.
