A stylish but ultimately stiff collection of old tropes about writers and their audience, fiction vs. reality, and the Other that becomes you.
A masterfully made psychological thriller in the traditional mode.
Although the screenplay contains all the beats needed to generate tension, Assayas' gift for conveying information between the lines is almost entirely lost on Polanski ...
It wobbles at the brink of plot-holes which undermine the vital realistic plausibility of a film like this; the entire third act moreover loses its way and winds up, like its heroine, in a ditch.
There is no escaping the silliness and derivative nature of this film, which could as easily be retitled Based on a Number of my Favourite Movies.
There is applied elegance where there should be, but the film develops so ambiguously that at this point it's as cliche as the last scare in a 70s horror flick. [Full Review in Spanish]
Polanski returns to Paris to idle between The Tenant and Frantic to present another psychological thriller... [Full review in Spanish]
Polanski's latest film featutres his direct, clean, naked and elegant style. [Full Review in Spanish]
It's very innovative or surprising, but it is entertaining and effective. [Full Review in Spanish]
The result of Based on a True Story is a mediocre psychological thriller that's barely competent. [Full Review in Spanish]
As in the last works of Polanski -bah, in all his filmography- music, direction of photography, art direction and the performances are an amalgam. [Full review in Spanish]
Definitely a film worth recommending. [Full Review in Spanish]
