Blood and beauty are set in tandem, leaving the audience to wrestle with the contradictions that [director] Nugroho highlights in a film that stands out by any standard of cinema.
A colorful and confounding head trip, Opera Jawa is guaranteed to test the fortitude of all but the most adventurous viewer.
A radiant folk fantasia, at once sophisticated and elemental, freewheeling and composed.
A beautifully mounted musical epic combining traditional myths with contempo meditations on violence and social inequality, Opera Jawa is bold and innovative.
A refreshing treat.
As beautiful as it is confounding.
I found it beautiful, exotic and virtually incomprehensible.
I remembered what Kenneth Tynan said about Godot: go and see it, and the worst that can happen is that you will see an oddity, a four-leaf clover. But it could yet be a wonderful experience.
With some remarkable dance and spectacle, this is a unique film, but not exactly one with broad appeal.
A crash course in Javanese symbolism is advised before viewing, but few current movies can boast a more of breath-stopping images.
In certain circles, it won't be for anyone. But it's as unusual and enigmatic a piece of cinema as you're likely to see this year.
A visually stunning musical.
