Critic Reviews for Marat/Sade
Though not as powerful as the play, even if there's the same director and performers, it still connects with a modern audience.
Audience Reviews for Marat/Sade
The problem of bringing a play to the screen has been approached in many ways, often disastrously. Here, Brook has achieved the very difficult. He has taken an important play, made it more immediate and powerful, and in doing so has created a distinguished if not brilliant film.
I suppose it was innovative in 1967, but I can think of few films that have bored me more. It was torture getting through this pretentious mess. I don't care if it is the Royal Shakespeare Company doing it, or whether it is historically significant, boring is boring
Marat/Sade, a Peter Brook's film is nothing special. At times it seems to try to hard to be funny, be really isn't. It shows the play that an insane asylum has put on for the sponsors. This play shows Jean Paul Marat's last day's. I strongly recommend not watching this movie. The acting is the only thing special i can think of. The storyline was quite boring, and i wasn't even remotely interested in the dialogue to understand this movie. Sure there were some funny scenes, but that takes up maybe 10 minutes of this entire 2 hour film. Why this was made? I cannot say but once again stay clear of this, it is not worth your time.
