A captivating, enjoyable, often edifying documentary.
Wilde Salome is great neither as a documentary nor a drama.
"Wilde Salomé" is most fascinating as a portrait of a superstar actor who, for all his wealth and privilege, encounters unusual frustrations as he pursues genuine artistic ambitions.
[A] fascinatingly wacky expression of a street actor's passion for a work that seems far from his interests or aptitude.
As in Looking for Richard, it is a treat watching skilled actors build their performances during rehearsal.
Despite frequent declarations of his fixation with Salome, Pacino as both helmer and star fails to make clear the source of this obsession.
A nostalgic platform for both the writer and star's greatest past hits, here uneasily joined together in a mixed medium which doesn't quite support either of their visions.
Wilde Salomé is an ambitious documentary that bites off more than it can chew, and quite knowingly.
Al Pacino's documentary 'Wilde Salomé' proves to be more satisfying as an examination of Oscar Wilde and his play than as an exploration of Pacino's theatrical methodology.
Wilde Salomé only offers a very basic look into Wilde's life, and the staging of Salomé is distinctly uninspired. The combination of Pacino and Chastain, however, results in plenty to enjoy, however flawed the project may be.
Wilde Salomé is passionate and absorbing, though the insertion of lengthy clips from the film might irk viewers who've just watched it.
Pacino's passionate look at both Salome and Wilde. It delivers in fits and starts but mostly baffles.
