  • Downey makes something lively, sexy and moving out of a role that's just a thin concept. But the movie feels like it's still in the darkroom. show more

  • Fur starts stylishly, and confidently, but the film dwindles down to a chamber piece in a claustrophobic chamber. Enter at your own risk.

  • If the only measure of Fur's achievement was in how well it conjures the fairy-tale mood of Arbus' most memorable photos, then it is a modest success. But as a chronicle of the turning point in an artist's creative life, it falls flat on its viewfinder. show more
