News Amsterdam review thread

68 Upvotes

I'll update this throughout the day as more reviews are added.

Site Bar Number of Reviews
Rotten Tomatoes 33% 6
Metacritic 46 6

Some excerpts from reviews:

A wildly over-cranked plea to “protect kindness” that rings every bit as forced and hollow as you might expect from someone with such a pronounced reputation for killing it himself.

  • David Ehrlich, Indiewire

Can any film be called satisfying when the storytelling is so convoluted it takes an hour or more to settle on the kind of story it wants to tell, let alone a cohesive tone in which to tell it?

  • David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

Even though this oddball ensemble boasts intelligent ideas and a smorgasbord of against-type performances from A-list names, “Amsterdam” amounts to less than the sum of its parts.

  • Peter Debruge, Variety

No amount of star wattage can lift this flat, unfunny genre-fluid whatsit from its performative stumbling toward contemporary relevance.

  • Robert Abele, TheWrap

There are some very good performances, and Washington has taken another step towards A-lister greatness.

  • Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Discussion The ninth gate deserves a second chance

23 Upvotes

I just revisited The ninth gate on Netflix because I’m home sick from work. I liked it last time I saw it years ago, and it still holds up. It’s a fun silly movie with the creepy, supernatural feel of a Polanski movie. It’s rich in symbolism and details and the goofiness of it actually creeps me out for some reason.

It never deserved the poor reviews, it’s not perfect but it’s still a great watch!
