  1. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

  2. El Biffo's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    Post-Soviet angst and excess becomes surreal horror. So many things borrowed from so many other filmmakers: Tarkovsky, Bunuel, Lynch, Pasolini, Greenaway, (and many others) that at times they almost feel like gimmicks. Even the title is borrowed from Melies, the originator of gimmickry in cinema, as well as all the characters from that 70-second, 1898 film. But cinema is itself a gimmick, so it's OK with me.

  5. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    Weaker than Autumn Ball as it proposes a pastiche of too many elements. The director is clearly talented, but this change of direction from the previous movie raises some doubt about the author's status. I've seen too many directors sampling and quoting other director's oeuvre to make their own movie to be impressed here.

  6. siperisaika's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    so d. lynchesque. but also unique in its own way.

  7. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    yes I liked this movie . But there are a lot of inspirations ... If this director had chosen only one language of director who influenced him mostly. This movie could be much better , much effective. for example onyl tarr. Yes there are lots of things which pushes audiences into thinking. But it is soup! A soup which has everything . I dont like eclectic artistic conception .There is nothing new ... just copy paste.

  9. santiago alzate botero's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

  10. F.Bieberkopf's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    Wonderful film from the Estonian auteur, surreal, monochromatic, fast-paced and atmospheric.

  11. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    Va quedando claro hacia dónde camina el cine de Ounpuu. Nuevamente genera un filme que no se contenta por caminar hacía una sola senda. Antes solo era la comedia y el drama entrelazados. Ahora lo es el misterio, el thriller, lo fantástico y en mayor dósis, el absurdo, algo también presente en sus anteriores, solo que esta vez es un absurdo visceral. "La hora del lobo", "Lost highway" vienen a la mente. Falta trama.

  12. Law's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    Now, if only Sugisball was on here.

  13. Frank ViSo's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

  14. Matt Richards's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    WOW. Just WOW. A surrealist, black & white, existential, mid-life crisis gone mad. It's actually quite restrained in many ways, getting darker and darker towards the end. The film follows one man, a middle level manager and his outward projected existential crisis in a series of revolving doors. Truly original stuff, it even has a stage except from Uncle Vanya. Great sound design too. 4.5 stars

  15. gongoina's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    It was a moment of bliss when the gracious, beautiful black dog that accompanied Stalker 30 years ago once again accompanied Tõnu here. It's like running into an old friend and considering the onthological context in both films, it may hardly be a coincidence. What a nice present this Eesti film is.

  16. Risselada's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    Blue, I was thinking of every single one of those names while I watched this film!!!

  17. Somewhat Damaged's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    Hell and Poetry. Do we need more? Brillant.

  18. Nick Block's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    Wow...Amazing film. Definitely see the Tarr, Lynch, Maddin and Greenaway comparisons, but this work is 100% original.

  19. Blue K, Custodian of the Cinema's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    One part Aki Kaurismaki, one part Bela Tarr, one part David Lynch, a pinch of Denis Levant with a miniature accordion, shake vigorously,and then finally top it with a garnish of Peter Greenaway. And voila!

  20. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    Absolutely genius. One of the best movies of the year. Reminded me of "4" (citiri).

  21. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    Enthrallingly surreal, avant garde meditation on the essence of goodness is a unique mind bender. With its haunting dream sequences and beautiful black and white cinematography, it feels like a cross between the work of David Lynch and Guy Maddin.

  22. toeachiscinema's rating of the film The Temptation of St. Tony

    Surprise of the year. Arthouse at its best. Obviously influenced by Tarr, not so much Lynch. Probably a future Criterion release.
