Taymor is a Tony Award-winning director, but what works on stage whiffs on screen.

Though one senses it might have been sharper and edgier, [it] never becomes a slog for the viewer.

At best a mixed bag as regards the impressively subversive figure at its center, at two-and-a-half-hours it ends up being a case in point for less being more.

Twin a feminist icon with a theater icon, and you produce one remarkable film.

The Glorias' may be long, but it tells an important story of American feminism.
October 1, 2020
It means well and is well-cast, but director Julie Taymor's overly long and very granular look at the life of activist/journalist Gloria Steinem is muddled and off-point.
October 1, 2020
The Glorias [does] right by the film's subject, with a couple of great performances that keep Taymor's loftier aspirations from spinning completely out into orbit.
October 1, 2020
A postcard-pretty portrait of feminist icon Gloria Steinem, Julie Taymor's The Glorias fails to deliver.

Ironically, 'The Glorias' works too hard.
October 1, 2020
With a runtime of two and a half hours, it lasts too long and doesn't go deeply enough to register the way it should.

A solid if flawed effort.

Using every tool at her disposal, Taymor crafts an epic tapestry of a remarkable life, paying tribute to the glorious Gloria Steinem.
September 30, 2020
While it glosses over some key details in her personal life, this biopic of the feminist icon captures the spirit of its subject while spotlighting the ongoing urgency of her cause.
September 30, 2020
The key performances are strong, but director/co-writer Julie Taymor's movie meanders too much, dragging through the beginning and again toward the end.
September 30, 2020
THE GLORIAS ends up a fascinating and wholly worthy tribute, albeit one that bites off more than it can properly chew.
September 30, 2020
"The Glorias" never quite captures the activist in all her glory.
September 30, 2020
"The Glorias" is an offbeat biographical tribute that feels like it wants to be offbeater.
September 30, 2020
You expect Bette Midler's Bella Abzug to climb the Empire State Building and start swatting airplanes. Alicia Vikander? Really?
September 30, 2020
It's hard to find ways to give the film proper credit when it only aspires to do so much.
September 30, 2020
Someone this savvy about words and images should have rated a biopic that is, too.
