Piņero Reviews

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

It attempts to champion the phony theme that poor, vulnerable artists should be forgiven their failings because they are so much more important than the rest of us.

Who was Piņero, and more to the point, why should we care? Bratt brings him to life, but we come away appreciating his genius no more than we did before.

Despite the quality of Bratt's performance, the movie is like its subject: provocative, impenetrable and tiresome.

A dull, slow, and completely uninteresting biopic.

Flashily but irritatingly shot, full of unmotivated switches from colour to b/w, sudden flashbacks, mannered slow mo and jump cuts, this is hardly a subtle evocation of its subject's life.

One would wish that the end result of their labors, which is an obvious effort of love, would be better.

This biopic seemed about as amorphous as a junkie high.

The film's cinematic technique is supposed to be vibrant and alive and reflect Pinero's variegated lifestyle, but it never gets to the soul of the man....

Biopics about inebriated artists are always stranded by their own non-stories, and Piņero's short life was apparently little more than a series of dimebag mooches and public stumbles.

Has its moments ... but overall it doesn't do justice to Bratt's brave performance.

Bratt's performance is as steady and consistent as the film is frustrating.

A sustained piece of showboating mythmaking, and something of a snow job.

With his cinematic artyness, Ichaso the director may be trying to dazzle us out of seeing the holes that Ichaso the writer has left gaping.
