No matter how great all the constituent elements were, [it couldn't] survive the kind of stiff, wholly artificial and forced performance that Madonna gives.

A pretty much ideal big-screen adaptation of the material, which becomes convincingly cinematic. [Blu-ray]

Webber's music is hauntingly original and effective, while Rice's lyrics manage to convey the information that's missing without a standard narrative and scenic construction, while also incorporating a constant sense of interpretation.

At a time when songs showcased in movies were being shot as MTV music videos, leave it to director Alan Parker (The Commitments, Fame) to offer a full-blooded musical with epic elegance on its mind.

I doubt any director could have made a good movie from Andrew Lloyd Webber's baffling and shallow musical.

It is quite possible to hate Cats and deplore Sex and still enjoy this movie.

What makes "Evita" so powerful is its ability to convey complex emotions through its music.

Alan Parker has a knack for musicals... even ones starring Madonna.

The problem is that Madonna's performance is all style. She mugs for the camera, but her acting is rarely convincing and her songs are one disappointment after another.

With one of the most dazzling screen chassis in years, Evita is definitely worth a look -- maybe even two. But don't look under the hood.
