  1. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Kiss of the Spider Woman

    Seldom does melodrama feel so genuine as it does in Kiss of the Spider Woman. It may be due to the contrast between the overacted film scenes recalled by Luis and the realist scenes from the Brasilian prison, this contradiction between the movie-induced grand illusions and shit-smelling prison reality. Whether the tragic end vindicates the one or the other, is open to debate.

  2. bryanvmh's rating of the film Kiss of the Spider Woman

    Love is a many stinged thing

  3. smndvdcl's rating of the film Kiss of the Spider Woman

    One of Harvey Weinstein's anachronistic Miramax favourites.

  4. S.J.B.'s rating of the film Kiss of the Spider Woman

    3.5/5. I don't know what this film would or could be without Hurt.

  7. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film Kiss of the Spider Woman

    A pesar de su sólido guión, el resultado me parece algo frío. El desempeño actoral de Hurt y Juliá es notable. Sus escenas íntimas, filmadas con sobriedad, están realmente logradas.

  8. Zachary T.'s rating of the film Kiss of the Spider Woman

    Juggles multiple narratives with remarkable clarity, distinction and dexterity, boasts a pair of mesmerizing, complex and sympathetic powerhouse performances, and, ultimately, emerges as a truly beautiful deconstruction and celebration of male sensitivity.

    [Cinémathèque PT #: 35 mm] (2013)

  13. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Kiss of the Spider Woman

    Interesting character drama works in large part to the excellent performances of Raul Julia and William Hurt. It goes on a bit too long, and takes a few credibility-stretching turns, but the strengths of the acting and a few visually impressive sequences make it a compelling piece of work.

  14. Tigrane Minassian's rating of the film Kiss of the Spider Woman

    William Hurt is one of a hell of an actor.

  15. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film Kiss of the Spider Woman

    Something I would've enjoyed around the age of 15 for various reasons...so thus the 5 star rating.

  16. A.J. Hakari's rating of the film Kiss of the Spider Woman

    Solid performances from Raul Julia and William Hurt, whose characters complement one another as their stories converge into one another. A little long in the tooth at times, but watching the events unfold is always absorbing.
