Critic Reviews for Bagdad Cafe
Unfortunately, the film's curious conceits remain implausible even on a fantasy level, and most of the satirical possibilities are either sidestepped or fumbled.
The theme song really is inescapable...strange things happen in a charmingly-plotless way.
Just as the main character slowly grows on people in the film, it can draw in reluctant viewers.
Percy Adlon's first English-speaking film is a charming fable about the friendhsip between two vastly different women.
This 20-year-old film reminds us of a time before independent movies became the formulaic fare they often are these days.
Audience Reviews for Bagdad Cafe
This enjoyable fable is expertly edited and knows how to use a surreal cinematography to enhance the sense of oddness created by its rather unusual story. But it also doesn't know how to end and simply drifts without any clear direction in the last fifteen minutes.
Starts out like low budget community theater but that's probably part of its charm. Bagdad Cafe has substance and heart that reveals itself in a slow-burn of oddball characters and intelligent scripting.
beautiful. mesmerising, joyful film-making, of the kind that you wish there was more. reality and dream mix - Percy Adlon knows the right doses. a happiness pill for easy riders and cool viewers. in my opinion, excellent. 5/5
