Wonderful movie!!!

Well what a great subject for a movie. It appeared to have an OK budget, star power all the fixins. It started out promising but quickly faded into a made for television type film. I gave up on it at the 94 minute mark. My European history teacher would roll over in her grave at the liberties taken here.I give it one and one half stars.

Previously Portman/Hershlag would not remove her cloths for entertainment. But now she has decided she must make a sacrafice for the Jewish people. Anti-semitsim must be combated. And so- viola!

Wow. Powerful and Emotional film.I loved traveling back in time, I imagine what it must have been like to live during the inquisition, frightful!

(reminds me of Robert Downey Jr.)I enjoyed the historical

An unwieldy mix of political satire and lavish period soap opera. Full Review

Lavish production and wardrobe design, as well as beautiful cinematography by Javier Aguirresarobe make Goya's Ghosts lovely to look at, but as a portrait of the artist, the movie is a letdown. Full Review

There is so little emotionally or intellectually at stake in most popular entertainment that Goya's Ghosts, Milos Forman's challenging, compelling and wildly uneven film, shoots like a cannonball into the solar plexus. I can't remember when I've been so physically and mentally shattered. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The movie is uneven in the extreme, to the extent that it feels like two imperfectly wed pictures. The first, while not extraordinary, at least contains some interesting ideas. The second borders on embarrassing: an overblown melodrama complete with coincidence building upon coincidence and plot threads that are left unresolved. Full Review
Jonathan Holland
Ambitious script is stranded between entertainment and intellectualism, leaving us with a magnificent folly, thoroughly watchable for its visuals but ultimately hollow. Full Review
