News & Interviews for Simpatico
Critic Reviews for Simpatico
Much effort and expertise have gone into the making of Simpatico, but, while it's entertaining, it's not as persuasive as it needs to be to succeed fully.
Simpatico never pulls together long enough to amount to much more than a series of prematurely aborted encounters, scenes from a movie sketched but unfinished.
First-time feature director Matthew Warchus can't keep the plot from bewildering and even distancing the viewer.
Audience Reviews for Simpatico
***Due to the recent RT changes that have basically ruined my past reviews, I am mostly only giving a rating rather than a full review.***
Not a good movie - it suffers from the usual play-translated-to-film issues - but the performances are all good and it has horses and a Sam Shepard script.
Starring: Nick Nolte, Jeff Bridges, Sharon Stone, Catherine Keener, and Albert Finney.
Directed by Matthew Warchus.
Written by Matthew Warchus and David Nicholls.
Rated [b]R[/b] (for some strong sexuality, and for language).
Running time approximately 1 hour 46 minutes.
[center][i]This was a truly beautiful scene.[/i][/center]
Matthew Warchus' [i]Simpatico[/i] is a victim of its own unfocused ambitions. I'm not sure the creators of the film even know what or why it is, and that, in itself, is enough to make you wonder. The cast is great, the performances fine, but the story (?) is so incredibly twisted, one cannot possibly remain properly engaged throughout the seemingly endless 106 minutes. I really wanted to like this but, sadly, I did not. [b]*1/2 (out of ****) C-[/b]
