All Critics (292) | Top Critics (70) | Fresh (282) | Rotten (10)

  • While still embracing the visual facades that make his films such a pleasure to watch, Pain and Glory finds him stripping away the emotional facades, bringing us closer to him than ever before.

    December 24, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • There is jubilation and wonder to be found in these remembrances, moments of pure bliss that are beyond imagining.

    November 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Almodóvar shows us that, even after nearly two dozen features over several decades, he can still hold an audience in his hand - and surprise it.

    November 6, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A masterful, melancholy, tender, lacerating self-examination, filled with colour and light and the ghosts of those he has loved. Almodovar at 70, and perhaps astonishing to himself, continues to grow.

    November 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • For all those cinemagoers who have been enthralled by Almodovar's work over the years this very personal movie, with its superbly pitched central performance by Banderas, will be immensely rewarding.

    November 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Antonio Banderas is riveting in Pedro Almodóvar's pensive, nostalgic, and contemplative Pain and Glory.
