The New York Times
Summons the stock characters of behind-the-scenes theater stories and affectionately invests them with new life. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
A masterful accomplishment...teems with its own sense of life, crackles with daring, walks the tightrope between satire and pathos with a rare assuredness. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
Few movies are as eloquent in their performances and their art direction. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Self-satisfied -- an undisciplined brat of a film. Full Review
Jami Bernard
New York Daily News
Beneath the noisy, farcical surface of John Turturro's Illuminata is a thoughtful and unusually mature meditation on love. Full Review
