Led by strong work from Danny Huston, Ivans XTC honors its source material with a Hollywood-set drama that's tough to watch but not without its rewards.

A triumph, relentless and beautiful in its downbeat darkness.
A committed, intelligent and fascinating piece of work with no irony about it.
A remarkable film by Bernard Rose.
I have no way of knowing exactly how much is exaggeration, but I've got a creepy feeling that the film is closer to the mark than I want to believe.
To the degree that ivans xtc. works, it's thanks to Huston's revelatory performance.
It's tough to watch, but it's a fantastic movie.
Shot on High Definition video, this exceptionally well-made but exceedingly bleak peek at tinseltown would be unbearable were it not for the sympathetic performance of Danny Huston...
The fascination comes in the power of the Huston performance, which seems so larger than life and yet so fragile, and in the way the Ivan character accepts the news of his illness so quickly but still finds himself unable to react.
It's hard to say who might enjoy this, are there Tolstoy groupies out there? It's dark and tragic, and lets the business of the greedy talent agents get in the way of saying something meaningful about facing death
It gets onto the screen just about as much of the novella as one could reasonably expect, and is engrossing and moving in its own right.
Huston nails both the glad-handing and the choking sense of hollow despair.
Captivates as it shows excess in business and pleasure, allowing us to find the small, human moments, and leaving off with a grand whimper.
