Critic Reviews for The Belly of an Architect
There's a good deal here to relish, even if the piece as a whole eventually descends into the same hermetic serialism of motifs that has consumed most of Greenaway's pictures.
Brian Dennehy gives a towering performance as a middle-aged architect in Rome on a special project that becomes an obsession.
The most telling parallel is that between Kracklite, with his perpetual stomach upset, and director Greenaway: Both are pretentious gasbags.
Not one of Greenaway's more successful efforts
Audience Reviews for The Belly of an Architect
A Belly of transgression.Snatching Mertens,offering Dennehy his must-see performance and yes folks,this is Peter Greenaway,out of the best directors working in and most importantly for cinema.Gasping with awe,the appropriate toast to a twisting little diamond from Albion.Nations,personalities collide with misery and treachery.Amongst 87's works of art for sure.
