A dynamic portrait of an artist by an artist, one as wry, audacious and erotically charged as its flamboyant subject. Read full review
The film seems a mad mix of staid PBS bio-drama, flamboyant musical comedy and surreal cartoon nightmare. Read full review
Sometimes we feel as if the film careens from one colorful event to another without respite, but sometimes it must have seemed to Frida Kahlo as if her life did, too. Read full review
Disappointing. Read full review
It's too bad that this long-awaited movie didn't go further than faithfully re-creating Kahlo's artwork and her studied look. Her passionate and tragically short life (she died at 47) is ideal Hollywood material, but the audience is left wanting a more in-depth portrait. Read full review
A revolutionary life has rarely felt less edgy, or the biography of an iconoclast more bourgeois. Read full review
Skips from episode to episode without illuminating the essence of the woman or her art. Read full review
Mostly, though, Hayek's problem is one of physical miscasting. She's so tiny next to the tall, rotund Molina that she looks like child in their scenes together. And despite a fake caterpillar brow, she's just not believable as a woman bemoaning her disfigurements. Read full review
Hamstrung by a script that seems determined to stop at all the big moments in Frida's life (she died in 1954 at age forty-seven) without giving anything time to resonate. Read full review
A domestic melodrama with weak dialogue and biopic cliches. Read full review
