  3. Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film Julia

    Cassavete's theme of Gloria revisited by Zonca. Tilda SWINTON strikes hard. Bluffing !

  4. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Julia

    7/10, my review:

  5. Jye Sherwell's rating of the film Julia

    Good film, and probably one of Tilda's best roles/performances.

  6. (blank) FilmBlog's rating of the film Julia

    An alcoholic disaster kidnaps a child and runs to Mexico in a vain attempt to put her life back on course with the promise of quick cash. The film owes much to the Gena Rowlands vehicle; Gloria. There are times when Swinton embodies Rowlands to such perfection that it seems caricature. This gives way halfway through the movie however, when all the trappings dissolve and what is left is a mediocre crime film.

  7. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Julia

    Whoa! What a moooovie. Swinton was amazing as well.

  8. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Julia

    It took me a while to realize that this is actually a black comedy.

  9. Eric Sherwood's rating of the film Julia

  10. Daniel Spiegel's rating of the film Julia

    An awful story expressed brilliantly. This is one of those films that has a story that is difficult to watch because everything that could go wrong does and then gets worse. Direction and cinematography are tops, however, revealing just enough of the important details and in sometimes stunning, sometimes grotesque manners. Definitely a bared-truth human drama of incontinence and greed.

  11. T Mills's rating of the film Julia

    Regardless of various plot holes, this film achieves greatness through Swinton's performance. There is simply nothing else like it in her filmography and it is a true testament to incredible talent. As a piece of pulp fiction, it is also very entertaining and thrilling.

  13. laurax's rating of the film Julia

    Tilda Swinton is marvelous in this role.

  14. El Biffo's rating of the film Julia

    Tilda is always great when she is playing some kind of really fucked-up character. Better than when she is trying to be sane. And in this one she speaks American! Important fact: Tilda and I have the same birthday- Guy Fawkes Day :-)

  15. Ben Loory's rating of the film Julia

    Takes its time but it gets you all the way there

  16. msmichel's rating of the film Julia

    Another mesmerizing performance by the great Tilda Swinton in this well written and directed film by Erick Zonca. A darker take/homage to Cassavetes' 'Gloria' that isn't afraid to dwell on the darker side of human nature. The ending ultimately a bit of a let down but the two and half hours getting there very satisfying. Is there anything Swinton can't do?

  17. irrena's rating of the film Julia

    true, tilda is totally blowing here!

  18. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Julia

    Logical descent into a tightening spiral of paranoia and desperation edged by a subtle sense of maternalism. Swinton plays an ace in a role that should attract little sympathy but she manages to lace it with well judged and thought-through emotion. It's overlong but has a fascinating underbelly rooted in the blackest of farces.

  19. Reneé Ylizaliturri's rating of the film Julia

    An unforgettable performance by Tilda Swinton who takes viewers on a 2 and a half hour ride full of suspense, drama and a roller coaster plot that will have you riveted. Not to be missed! :)

  20. T.J. Royal's rating of the film Julia

    This was kinda tough to sit through, but not without jolts of humor bubbling up. Tilda Swinton is VERY brave in this, and the supporting characters were all important and interesting. This was effective. I just don't know when'll be the next time I'll wanna watch it.

  21. Sefer Taslı Sapık's rating of the film Julia Calexico-pass-through.

  22. Eduardo A.'s rating of the film Julia

    Tension until the last moment.

  23. Patricia's rating of the film Julia

    Tilda is such a treasure! This picture is such a breath of fresh air, it is really a provoking picture, its dirty and ugly at times. But yet it has this power that it just grabs you and makes you see this character's reality. The ending is so fantasic it left me really wanting her to get want she wants, she wins you over, when in fact its wrong on what she has done. It's just a great film.

  24. Guillermo Padilla's rating of the film Julia

    A pesarde la buena actuación de Tilda Swinton,el film se pierde con sobreactuaciones de los actores mexicanos, y una dirección muy plana.
