    What begins as Lafcadia's journey into the heart of darkness ends as his pilgrimage into the light. Stunning. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    The title-character's redemption comes very slowly. But if you have patience, this is a stately, beautifully composed story. show more

    The film's epic look is undermined by his narrow focus; in the end it feels rather thin and less than the sum of its handsome parts. show more
