Derek Elley
Its soul rests in Skarsgard's performance, a powerful mixture of buttoned-down anger and personal disappointment that combines the filmmaker's self-questioning with the real-life character's conflict. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Characters do little more than run around the same track incessantly, leaving us waiting for revelations that never arrive. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
In compelling, suspenseful fashion, Taking Sides illuminates brilliantly the dilemma of a great, world-renowned artist flourishing in a totalitarian regime. Full Review
Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly
The sides to consider in Taking Sides are all but obscured by cinematic pomposity at best, Holocaust porn at worst. Full Review
Michael O'Sullivan
Washington Post
The notions of the good man's complicity through inertia and of innocence tarnished by association are ones that have been more powerfully explored before. Full Review
