Titus Reviews

June 17, 2008
A conditional victory.
April 27, 2007
A consistently absorbing entertainment that never becomes either campy or facetious, given its inescapable exaggerations.

A striking addition to the Shakespeare filmography.

Looks like a jumble sale featuring the work of other directors and artists.

The film is striking and original and, in its clash of the brutal and the delicately poetic, supremely offputting.
