Critic Reviews for La tragedia di un uomo ridicolo (The Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man)(Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

It's Mr. Bertolucci's most rewarding, most invigorating film since Last Tango.

August 30, 2004 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Perhaps the least known of Bertolucci's features, it is far from the least interesting.

January 1, 2000 | Full Review…

As usual with Bertolucci, the film's style and bravura camerawork are clearly in the forefront, but the politics and social commentary never quite find their place.

December 7, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man comes across as a parable about a son who dies and is reborn.

February 4, 2004 | Full Review…

Bertolucci has a sure eye for the shabby moral dilemma of his central character, and with that, he makes sly comment on the state of the Italian nation.
