Ratings & Reviews

  1. EdieEmm's rating of the film Aria

    As hit-or-miss as any free-reign omnibus project. With maybe a little more miss. 5 for Julien Temple’s Rigoletto, 4 for Jarman’s moving, oneiric Dupuis Le Jour. And I won’t pretend there wasn’t some charm in the atmospheric excesses of Robert Altman’s rabble cum Edwardian Garbage Pail Kids, or in the glittery neon tropes of Roddam’s Tristan und Isolde. The rest fell between dull & questionable, and most picked sides.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Aria

    Vision hautement baroque, brillante et d'une époustouflante maestria... (Altman)

  3. Josh Tierney's rating of the film Aria

    Five stars for Godard's Armide

  4. Nate's rating of the film Aria

    Five stars for the Jarman, Altman, and (what the hell) Godard, whose segment is even by his standards abrasive and off the wall. The Jarman is some of the most transcendent cinema I've seen, it was overwhelming to experience it in the theatre despite the largely crummy context preceding it (the rest of the segments are pretty dire on the whole).

  5. José Neves's rating of the film Aria

    mainly, Godard's joke in the land of gyms.

  6. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Aria

    Godard's contribution stands out in this mostly lukewarm collection.

  7. Nathan Grey Hollis's rating of the film Aria

    Some amazing directors here. Not all of them hit the mark. Altman's, however, is worth the watch alone!!!

  8. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Aria

    It's not really a movie. There isn't much there to tie the clips together. It's more like a compilation of music videos. Some of them are very good(Godard and Russell's in particular), and a couple of them are completely worthless.

  9. fleur de chair's rating of the film Aria

    Given the greatness of the directors who participated in this film, I was shocked at how terrible it was. I've seen perfume commercials with more depth than some of these short films.

  10. CRW's rating of the film Aria

    Temple/Jarman/Roddam - Yes. Roeg/Godard are embarrassing. The rest are alright.

  11. Tanya Rodriguez's rating of the film Aria

    gorgeous images and colors of how different can opera inspare. actually its a vibrant and bright images that seem unsuitable to the opera but they are still gorgeous

  12. Francesca Graneri's rating of the film Aria

    Derek Jarman and Charles Sturridge (La Vergine degli Angeli ... La forza del destino ) ..unforgettable!

  13. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film Aria

    Godard s is the worst thing i have ever seen ,Rusell is an old hand at this and his sequence is the best with Roeg, Temple and Roddam and Jarmans haunting piece coming up on the rails

  14. Diarmuid's rating of the film Aria

    Flashes of undeniable brilliance, but ultimately it never becomes the sum of it's parts

  15. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Aria

    Very variable rag-bag of short films that just about stand on their own, but barely exist as a coherent whole, despite a weak attempt at a linking theme with John Hurt's Pagliacci-esque character. Russell hits the nail on the head, Sturridge flounders in stodge. The rest fit in somewhere between the two.
