Critic Reviews for Eisenstein In Guanajuato
To be sure, Greenaway's sensibilities may not be for everyone, but in the years to come, this is an artist whose work will be studied. It's a pleasure seeing him come out to play.
Greenaway's madcap style involves quick cuts, scenes changing from black and white to color, split-screen effects and eye-popping visuals that tend to overwhelm. The effect is initially giddy but it ultimately wears the viewer down.
Fans of Greenaway's work - a mix of the brainy, the controversial and the grotesque - won't necessarily be surprised by any of this. They may, however, be disappointed at how little of it actually works.
This interpretation may not be strictly factual, but it's a persuasive narrative and it brings out the strongest instincts in Greenaway, whose most popular movie remains "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover."
Audience Reviews for Eisenstein In Guanajuato
It may not be easy for some to tolerate Greenaway's stylistic excesses and kitschy depiction of Eisenstein, but once you get used to all that, you will find an eccentric biopic that could have only come from him and is lifted by a committed central performance by Elmer Bäck.
