  1. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    A fitting ending for the Maestro, the chameleon called Marcello. "Please stop reading Carlos Casteneda!" I love the whole idea of negative anthropology. Great use of the pull-focus. The theme I took from it was the problem of the persuasive power of money. And lots of of other things that are cool!

  4. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    As many good writers Ruiz got a little bit convoluted in later years. The result is obviously boring. I won't remember that much except the puns on Castaneda,

  5. grotescsetorg's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

  6. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    A sentimental favorite of mine-- excellent on its own merits, magical for the context in which I first saw it.

  7. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    Marcello Mastroianni is a legend of Movie history. Even if he's not on the screen, you feel his presence and his voice so peculiar echoes in your head. Raoul Ruiz's Three Lives and Only One Death is in my opinion the last great movie he played in. The Fabergé Egg story invented by Bonitzer and Ruiz is a film worthy to stay in your library. Highly recommnended.

  8. Pol's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    An interesting film with surrealist glimpses that surprisingly evolves ending up being something unexpected, and keeps the uniqueness of each of the histories masterly tangled.

  13. objectadjective's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    Saw this in the theater when it came out and just loved it. Sadly, that small indie theater is no longer around, but I'm pleased to find this film living on here.

  14. EdieEmm's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    I enjoyed this film tremendously - engaging dialogue, dark humour, delicious surrealism, with beautiful sets and camerawork... Ultimately, though, the film built too much on a premise, and towards a climax, that fell flat. 3.5

  15. s8lal's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

  16. msmichel's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    Great script by Pascal Bonitzer and director Ruiz brought to life by Marcello Mastroianni in one of his final screen performances. Four wonderful stories that are brought together equal parts whimsy, surrealistic, suspenseful and clever. Production values are top notch with performances to match, especially our main trio of actresses; Galiena, Paredes and Chiara Mastroianni. A total pleasure to watch.

  18. TK BUCKLEY's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    Please stop reading Castaneda!

  19. anthonybowman's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    What a beautiful, complex film. Blurring the line between dark & twisted and whimsical, this film begs for repeated viewing. Though he'd come to the end of his career by this time, Mastroianni is still at the top of his game.

  20. Dargelosa's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    loved it, maistroianni always has a sweet surreal air about him.

  21. Edna Sweetlove's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    VERY kinky film. I guffawed throughout (loved the hammer in the head!) but was slightly let down by the ending, which should have been more magic-realist.

  22. Drew Millay's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

  23. metred uly's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    I lived and worked with people like Mastroianni's character. Each time I watch this film I am reminded of the complexities of schizophrenia and how so many live in society with this mental illness and are not only socially successful, but vicious in their ability to manipulate others. Although it's a bit fantastic and perhaps mild by way of someone with schizophrenia, what a nice introduction to madness!

  24. REH1101's rating of the film Three Lives and Only One Death

    Ruiz is the preeminent wizard of pathological psychology.
