Catch-22 suffers from a lack of imagination... The movie needed a good dose of madness. [Full Review in Spanish]

Not so much a cohesive story as a string of only tangentially related vignettes stripped of their original context, Catch-22 fumbles as an adaptation and as a war film in its own right.

Cynical and bitterly cold... [Mike] Nichols and [Buck] Henry fail to make an anti-capitalist film. They have made their case so strong that it becomes an anti-human film.

Though the vertiginously absurdist logic of the book is hopelessly fractured, some of it does filter through (the mostly superb performances are a great help).

Released during the Vietnam War, the movie was a commercial failure, but seen from today's perspective, its black humor holds up well.

Nichols has done the same thing in "Catch-22" that he did in "The Graduate." He's given us a funny beginning, then switched tones and gone serious.

Starts out pretty funny, gets incredibly weird by the end.

Flawed, but frequently brilliant.

A mess, occasionally a fascinating one.
