An enthralling docudrama that examines the Dutch master's most famous painting, "The Night Watch," for proof that it was responsible for his dramatic fall from grace. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
Part altart-history lesson and part pilot for CSI: The Louvre, Peter Greenaway's deconstruction of Rembrandt's 1642 painting The Night Watch contends that the work is--after the Mona Lisa, Da Vinci's The Last Supper and the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel--the fourth best-known artwork in the world.

The Hollywood Reporter
Greenaway is first and foremost a deft storyteller and filmmaker -- and a cheeky art historian. An appreciation of art isn't necessary to enjoy Rembrandt's J'Accuse, and Greenaway goes to great lengths to draw the artistically illiterate into the story. Full Review

Village Voice
The filmmaker uncovers a foul, lurid, corrupt, and perversely compelling conspiracy--which is to say, he successfully turns The Night Watch into a Peter Greenaway film. Full Review

Generally absorbing if sometimes fog-inducing. Full Review
