Bravo!

Philadelphia Inquirer
Triumphs by taking an elliptical approach that still reaches directly into the very core of genius.

Miami Herald
Saura's storytelling style draws us deep into Goya's world, a disturbing but bittersweet place that can look hauntingly modern.

Dreamy and elegantly filmed.

Mr. Showbiz
Covers some bases, but it feels like the Cliffs Notes version of a grander epic.

Never comes alive.

San Francisco Chronicle
The movie never catches fire with the emotions.

Boston Globe
Rich as it looks, it lacks the feverishness of Goya's art.

The meandering story doesn't gather much momentum and Vittorio Storaro's camera work is less awesome than usual.

New York Daily News
While it's visually stunning, the pretentiousness makes it hard to take seriously.
