Critic Reviews for Martin Eden

All Critics (78) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (65) | Rotten (13)

  • What ideas "Martin Eden" has are borrowed straight from the novel; what substance the novel has the movie removes, leaving its one big, notable idea emblazoned on it like a sticker on the bumper of a car being sold in a commercial...

  • The film is a masterpiece... see it any way you can.

    October 19, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Like a vast Italian repast, Martin Eden serves up a load of deep dish delights, but the final couple of courses are overcooked to the point where you're tempted to spit them out.

    October 19, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The sort of movie that restores your faith in an art form-or, at the very least, in the craft of turning a bygone era's paragraphs on a page into an urgent mix of sound and vision.

    October 19, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • [H]opefulness and rawness, much like society and the self, are ultimately inextricable in "Martin Eden," a work of art that abounds in its own beautiful contradictions.

    October 16, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's a slog at over two hours, much of it spent with Marinelli screaming or acting coarse.
