There are shafts of insight, and the photography's elegantly expressionist. But Irons, sturdily English despite a fitting heaviness of the spirit, is hopelessly miscast as the iconic, neurasthenic writer.

All the Kafka basics are there for the literary types to muse over and it has great entertainment value in its unpretentious playfulness.

Soderbergh's sophomore jinx, a pastiche of styles (noir, German Expressionism) and themes (personal and political oppression), further hampered by the vastly miscast Jeremy Irons.

Lem Dobb's script doesn't rely on comprehension or linearity, but the whole scope of the project has its compelling root.

Soderbergh does demonstrate again here that he's a gifted director, however unwise in his choice of project.

A movie about Franz Kafka? It's a good idea for a microsecond. Then it dissolves into a dumb proposition.
January 1, 2000
The effect is artistic, but it's also obvious when the material cried out for unsettling.
January 1, 2000
A stimulating blend of biography, hypothesis, interpretation and afterthought. It's a story about the 20th century.

Quite often, the visual feast is enough to hold audience attention. But, in the end, it all feels rather empty.
