  1. The Boreal Chorus's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    Despite the good acting, it's never refreshing to watch emotionally dishonest characters play intellectual games with one another, or indulge the half-hearted maneuvers and inverted rigmarole that inevitably sets them further away from their intended goal of real intimacy—which pretty much defines the bourgeoisie's main purpose in any age: to remind us of what is unbearably self-conscious, -reflexive, and unreal.

  2. petit astronaute's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    (DCP) Le regard. La beauté des langues.

  3. Ryan Swen's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    Reflections create emotional and intellectual landscapes on the faces of zealots.

  4. -REM-'s rating of the film Academy of the Muses

  5. Nina's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    2,5. First, you'll get 92 minutes of close-ups. Then you'll get a headache.

  6. Kamran's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    Pedantic dialogue with patterned scene to scene visual form gives way ultimately to recognition of own pretense. 72/100 - Good.

  7. Jason's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    Ah, much child-drivel predominates in the MUBI discourse around this extraordinarily illuminating investigation (and it clearly was an investigation; it sets out to discover itself). We start w/ the theoretical. Theory as collective intoxicant. The charm of academy. We descend into practice ... and into something wretched and sobering. Love and desire. Indeed, literature is their ideal domain. Life is a mess.

  9. José Neves's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    A very fatiguing movie in its weary formal solutions (the constant transparencies through glasses, the tremblant exposition of meaningful dialogues) and in its scholastic variant of documentary-fiction, not to mention a domestic idea of poetry as a salvific transcription of the world. Too much pret-a-porter "spirit" in a film where i would like to save the stimulating presence of the teacher's wife.

  10. Bernardo Crastes's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    Kind of a pretentious approach to the subject, but it's dealt with in such a natural and enchanting way, that you can't help but feel totally enveloped by the movie. The filology background only adds to the experience, as does the Italian/Spanish duality.

  11. Francisco Mouraz's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    It has some great moments but i found it mostly self-indulgent jibber jabber.

  12. Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    Part of the new wave of post-language digital cinema: A constructed experiment that constantly risks falling into the masturbatory and irrelevance that are associated with its heavily academic texture but that always manages to skirt that pitfall: like a blooming flower, the very deliberate games of thought thrown back and forward by these character-people give way to REAL, genuine moments that I'm sure [cont.]

  13. Roberto Carlos's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    s/o to the dude rocking that Uncle Boonmee sweater

  14. Slow Immersion [Joe]'s rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    What the fuck happened Guerin? Hard to believe an auteur who made Sylvia and Train of shadows - both such wonderful form, and light, can make something like this.. May well be one of the worst films I've from a filmmaker I used to admire a lot. Since Sylvia he has been on a real decline.

  15. rian's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    it's always nice to see artist goes beyond their comfort form

  16. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    It's sad to see how Guerín has abandoned his devotion towards light and how he has built this movie over a lot of blah blah blah about ridiculously superstitious ideas. Sometimes when nobody was talking and the image wasn't overexposed you could get some nice contemplative moments.

  17. saitosouta's rating of the film Academy of the Muses

    Wow, yeah, I understand. This film is handjob film. This film is for critics who are dedicated his heart to patriarchy & exhibit his penis. Vomitingly dreadful, pathetically macho garbage. That's the way you're, JLG.
