A movie-musical that is, at times, improbably still.
A rapturous beginning gives way to an interminable final act.
Operatic and epic — with all the pros and cons those descriptions entail.
Breathlessly paced and fun but not quite an all-time great.
Imports from other movies more than it transports.
One of the greatest love stories of all time.
A powerful, unsympathetic, no-frills portrayal of steady moral decay.
A uniquely awful film.
A fascinating love story and biography about both people at its center.
One of the best live-action family films of the year.
Excellent record, middling movie.
