Magisterially filmed, this movie demands at almost every instant to be regarded as a masterpiece, though for me it's too full of itself and its own virtue. Still, I can't deny it's an experience worth having.
Constructed from long elegant takes, and moving fluidly between naturalism and tableaux-like theatricality, it's a mesmerising work of arresting beauty and impressive emotional power.
The overall effect is genuinely entrancing, with a sense of tragic inevitability that gives meaning to the film's maddeningly attenuated rhythms.
This grim travelogue through a landscape of despair lacks internal power. It feels labored and portentous.
What arrogance and self-importance this film reveals.
Many of the images have a searing melancholy beauty, but they can also seem hackneyed. Likewise, the ideas underpinning Angelopoulos's gargantuan enterprise -- of the universality of alienation and the impos-sibility of pure art -- are commonplace.
Modernist stylization has its place in narrative film, but in this case less would have meant much more.
If you looked up in a reference book why most people hate foreign films you would probably see pictures of Ulysses’ Gaze staring back at you.
This ambitious film fails to compel. Too many closeups of disposed Lenin statues.
Angelopoulos' film is lyrically evocative but painfully self-important.
While it's beautiful, even graceful, and though its heart is in the right place, there's just as much to condemn as there is in its favor.
The film's images are always powerful, even if the dialogue seems superfluous.
