Critic Reviews for The Moment of Truth (Il momento della verità)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (2)

  • Never have I got such a message of the cruelty of the sport as is conveyed in this film, which owes much of its excitement to superb color photography.

    January 23, 2012 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Francesco Rosi's 1965 feature is widely (and plausibly) considered the best movie about bullfighting, in part because of its irony and finesse in capturing how the sport springs from and plays against the social reality of Spain.

    January 23, 2012 | Full Review…
  • It's a colourful, cruel world of senseless exploitation (of animals and humans alike) and tyrannical traditions, rendered with vivid brilliance by this uncommonly unsentimental director.

    March 9, 2012 | Full Review…
  • The best film on bullfighting.

    March 6, 2012 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • There's one thing I can say about every bullfighting movie I've seen: I'm always rooting for the bull.
