Boxing Helena Reviews
May 30, 2019
Both the beauty and her beastly pursuer remain too blankly generic for the implications of the movie's main metaphor to come through vividly.

Instead of the grotesque sexual humiliation of Kim Basinger we were all hoping for, we get schoolgirl surrealism.

'Boxing Helena'' is a bad film - with terrible acting, cliched dialogue, a silly script, pedestrian camera work and inferior direction.

Take one peak into the shoddy, tasteless Boxing Helena, and you'll realize why Madonna and Kim Basinger bailed out of the title role.

[An] ambitious but unsuccessful curiosity.

It's probably just as well that last-minute dropouts Kim Basinger or Madonna didn't take the title role, as the presence of a star lurking powerlessly on the little platform no doubt would have been distracting and more laughable than it [is] now.

It is curious that Lynch, having taken so many visual cues from her father, has an inadequate grasp of this compassion. The paralyzing obsession that permeates many of her father's works, on the other hand, she comprehends well.

Fairly provocative and not nearly as bad as critics claimed when it was released, but still intellectually half-baked.

Durante boa parte do tempo, discute de forma interessante diversos temas relativos ao amor, sexo e posse - apenas para desmoronar nos cinco minutos finais.

Engagingly morbid with moments of power--that is, until it falls apart beyond repair during its final moments.
