October 20, 2009
This idiosyncratic take on the genre is as much concerned with ordinary family dynamics as the absurdity of its characters' demonic existence.
October 20, 2009
Not without interest, but less satisfying than even an average Hammer horror.

It may not make much sense, but it never looks less than fabulous.
October 20, 2009
This offbeat horror item works much better as a dreamy mood piece with striking poetic images and as a semicomic appreciation of a few quintessential low-budget actors than as straight-ahead storytelling.
March 26, 2009
A lovely idea for a film that's been beautifully executed but slips too far off its narrative tracks to get where it wants to go.
September 16, 2006
Unfolding as a languid dream puzzle in Downtown Manhattan nether world, Michael Almereyda's blend of serious and frivolous ideas and mysterious and haunting images recalls David Lynch, who served as film's exec producer and also makes cameo appearance

If Nadja is to be considered an interesting failure, there's something to be said for the value and substance of broken treasures.

April 21, 2004
Too bizarre to be taken seriously and not funny enough to be entertaining.

A lyrical parody of the vampire genre.

May 20, 2003
It is refreshing to see so much style and life in the old undead tale, and to watch this strong cast with its perfect deadpan attitudes.

Clever and innovative take on vampire mythology in a contemporary tale set in New York City.
June 5, 2002
[Almereyda's] imagination seems more focused on composing striking shot compositions than in communicating pure and simple human emotions.

Hip. Cool. New Wave. Chic. These are only some of the adjectives applicable to Michael Almereyda's new take on the vampire legend. Of course, one other term springs to mind, but it isn't nearly as complimentary. Pretentious.

January 1, 2000
It's the kind of movie that deals with unspeakable subjects while keeping a certain ironic distance, and using dialogue that seems funny, although the characters never seem in on the joke.

January 1, 2000
Michael Almereyda's insanely brilliant fantasia on the Dracula legend.
January 1, 2000
Even as Nadja descends deeper into its downward, surrealistic spiral, the movie's always great to watch.
January 1, 2000
The most compelling point here has to do with Lowensohn: She's sulky and sad, but her precision is also remarkably vibrant against her shades-of-grey backdrop.
January 1, 2000
[A] genuinely affecting comedy-horror film that updates the Dracula lineage to present-day New York City.

January 1, 2000
The film stumbles with hackneyed plotting, uneven performances and a deadly-dull centerpiece that goes on forever.

January 1, 2000
What could have been a brilliant short becomes deadly, stretched to feature length.
