Marie Antoinette Reviews
Image courtesy of impawards.comThe early Marie Antoinette reviews are coming in, and they don't look too bad. Not fantastic, but pretty solid. I've got to admit I haven't had one shred of interest in this film ever since I saw the first trailer for it a few months ago. The fact that Sofia Coppola is directing it gets my attention, but nothing I've seen so far has solidified that. Looks like it might be worth watching after all.
Here is what some of the critics are saying about Marie Antoinette reviews:
Highly theatrical and yet also intimate and informal, Marie Antoinette lets its story slink almost casually through its lovingly composed and rendered images.
A.O. Scott - New York Times.
The work of a mature filmmaker who has identified and developed a new cinematic vocabulary to describe a new breed of post-postpostfeminist woman.
Lisa Schwarzbaum - Entertainment Weekly.
Let them have eye candy pretty much sums up Sofia Coppola's approach to her revisionist and modernist take on the famous royal airhead who in the end lost her head.
Todd McCarthy - Variety.
If Sofia Coppola isn't the queen of slow, she's the princess of bore. Despite its sumptuous production design and cinematography, this is grotesquely superficial, slow, and boring.
Tony Medley - tonymedley.com.
As of right now Marie Antoinette is holding a 68% on Rotten Tomatoes. which isn't too bad really. One of the things that is preventing me from having any enthusiasm about the project is Kirsten Dunst who has yet to impress me in anything other than Interview with a Vampire when she was a kid. Maybe she'll surprise us.
