Beautifully made but simple-minded Oscar bait, a film guaranteed to offend no one and to attract a large contingent fans who will love it for the nobility of its intentions and the earnestness of its performances.
A series of static, poetic tableaux rather than a full-blown cinematic experience, screenwriter-director Emanuele Crialese's Golden Door drains the drama and iconography out of an inherently dramatic, iconic story.
Images on a movie screen can either show the truth literally or evoke it emotionally. The Golden Door, tries to do both, alternating visions of stark realism with poetically dreamlike material in an unsteady and, ultimately, unsatisfying blend.
There's a big difference between slowly unfurling a difficult story so that it rewards a patient audience, and simply teasing viewers nearly to the point of torture. The Golden Door [skirts] dangerously close to the torturous.
