October 30, 2019
Gold is worth its weight in gold thanks to outstanding performances by Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez.
August 16, 2019
Gold is a good entertainment for adults, with an increasingly rare scale for independent works that are not blockbusters and therefore deserve, at least, an opportunity. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 20, 2019
Even balding and paunchy, McConaughey's latest charming rogue is more than enough to keep audiences riveted through Gold's patchy rhythm.
March 8, 2019
It misses a beat by avoiding the ethical implications of Third World profiteering. The film has a funny streak a mile wild - but a lot of this humour is undercut when the gags keep coming, and the reality check doesn't.
August 23, 2018
A takedown of the kind of high-octane greed and speculation that lead to financial crashes, it stars Matthew McConaughey in all his sweaty, bouncing-off-the-walls, Wolf of Wall Street and Dallas Buyers Club glory.
December 19, 2017
Gold is entertaining enough, mostly because McConaughey and Ramirez are compelling actors.
October 12, 2017
A film made with craft, but also with a lot of formulas in its exploration and reformulation of the eternal myth of the (North) American dream. [Full review in Spanish]
October 12, 2017
A kind of frenetic roller coaster ride, where we can never be completely sure of what will happen next. [Full review in Spanish]
June 20, 2017
As a vehicle for McConaughey's calculated showboating, it's beguiling, but in these troubled times it feels a little indulgent.
June 15, 2017
It has distinctive resources of other great American stories of ambition. When it manages to arm itself narratively, results better than expected. [Full review in Spanish]
June 13, 2017
Playing a flabby, balding gold prospector, Matthew McConaughey tests his screen charisma to the limit
March 13, 2017
Film of ups and downs, Gaghan's work lacks the wrapping style that Syriana had. But in return, it offers the eternal fireworks of films about scams. [Full review in Spanish]
March 13, 2017
A film where the chaos acquires its own value and forces us to enjoy at a more primary level, unrelated to its stable and elaborate socioeconomic coordinates. [Full review in Spanish]
March 9, 2017
The performance is hyperbolic and testicular, in the sense that McConaughey seems to be summoning the character from deep within his id and gonads.
March 3, 2017
When the tricksy denouement hits, we're not sure if we've been hoodwinked, but we're happy to have been taken for a ride, nonetheless.
February 22, 2017
Luckily, Matthew McConaughey's ferocious commitment to the role as the greasy, sweaty and chain-smoking hustler is the glue that keeps it all together.
February 10, 2017
As a big business movie in the wake of The Big Short, Gold gives us another dipsy adventure into the adrenalin-pumped world of high-risk speculation and financial high-wire walks...[with] an impressive acting showpiece from McConaughey.
February 10, 2017
Many of the true story's outlandish details are there on screen, and they make for some excellent twists and turns.
February 9, 2017
With 10 per cent less McConaughey and 10 per cent more everyone else, Gold, you feel, would be a much better investment.
February 8, 2017
Gold is that strange beast: an okay story elevated by a performance richer than the material truly deserves.
