  • This toweringly ambitious picture confronts a brilliant director, Atom Egoyan, with a major historical event and a profound theme. show more

  • This is a heartfelt piece, and while passion alone can't carry a movie, it sure helps. Ararat is uneven because Egoyan couldn't tell it smoothly. show more

  • Perhaps this movie was so close to Egoyan's heart that he was never able to stand back and get a good perspective on it -- that he is as conflicted as his characters, and as confused in the face of shifting points of view. show more
