Birth

The movie is intriguing while being somewhat ponderous. If the close ups of people in pregnant pauses were shortened by half it would cut about 15 minutes out of the movie. There is more than just the linear narrative going on and that's mainly because the film provokes the viewer to examine their emotions and responses to the topic. But it's rather tenuous and by the end I was thinking "That's it?"

Simply astounding

One of the best films I have ever seen. Unbelievable performances of tremendous subtlety. Highly original script, very disquieting and affecting. Kidman's performance is particularly surprising. Not one false note.

Beautiful

Everything about this movie is simply perfect: the story is worthy of a space in the canon of American Literature; the entire cast delivers performances that are no less than phenomenal; and the score is so gorgeous it will haunt you. Without films this good, there would be no way of knowing what a mediocre film looks like.
