Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Quaid makes a decent man's anguish richly palpable. Moore makes us feel hidden frenzy with a cool and ultimately heartbreaking grace.
Fresh: An accomplished marriage of elaborate style and content.
Fresh: It may be a movie about movies, but the artifice doesn't contradict the movie's plangent emotional realism. Moore's stunning, subtle performance as a woman trapped in the conventions of her time encapsulates the film's brave, double-edged beauty.
Fresh: Haynes' loving homage to the Technicolor female-driven melodramas of the 1950s looks and feels so authentic, it will make you forget you are watching a new movie.
fantastic Movie! love Julianne Moore
