Critic Reviews for Inside the Mind of Leonardo

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

Not quite documentary, yet by no means drama, "Inside the Mind of Leonardo" is what might be called poetic biography: maddeningly fragmentary and idiosyncratic, but 100 percent true.

January 1, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Animating his drawings makes him more child's cartoonist than incomparable draughtsman, and Peter Capaldi's modern-dress impersonation has a gratuitously histrionic intensity.

Though billed as a 3-D experience, "Leonardo" is flat in more ways than one.

December 18, 2014 | Full Review…

The movie starts by noting Leonardo's intent to leave a memory of himself in the minds of others. That's a benchmark "Inside the Mind of Leonardo" won't meet.

[A] goof/stunt of a movie ...

Works quite well when it really does go inside-either into da Vinci's chambers or into the pages of his notebooks.
