Critic Reviews for Bolshoi Babylon

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (5)

  • The film may not fill you with admiration for Filin himself, who is a charismatic but very divisive figure, but it certainly induces a sense of awe about the work of the company itself.

  • Given the circumstances, Read has done a wonderful job. Instead of promoting or smearing a celebrated brand he's created a portrait of a workplace that feels both pertinent to Putin's Russia and universal.

    January 8, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A shocking tale of dysfunction, showing that the discipline needed for classical music creates violence and pain as a hidden byproduct, like nuclear waste.

    January 7, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It places the traumatised but still astonishingly high-functioning company in national and historical context, peels away its glamorous mask, and lets the backstage dramas of its various damatis personae unfold.

    January 7, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Maybe more interesting as a behind-the-scenes exposé than it is a piece of hard journalism.

    January 7, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • What a dynamite situation for British director Nick Read and his team to walk into.
