Critic Reviews for The Mystic Masseur
A real clunker. A well-made, thoughtful, well-acted clunker, but a clunker nonetheless.
Though Ganesh is successful in a midlevel sort of way, there's nothing so striking or fascinating or metaphorically significant about his career as to rate two hours of our attention.
In the end ... the filmmakers are interested less in Naipaul's provocative world-view and more in his people, all of whom are wonderfully played, particularly by the lovely Dharker and James Fox.
A puzzling experience.
Audience Reviews for The Mystic Masseur
Very beautiful film, the Trinidad location is a huge plus, nicely filmed, but curiously uninvolving. It has all the right stuff for a great film but somehow does not achieve greatness.
