    I hope that if I ever were to become a famous artist and radical political activist and I happen to also have a relationship with someone at some point, the person that writes my biopic doesn't center the entire damn story around that relationship.

    I thought this movie was really good and I liked it a lot, but I feel like it was focusing on Frida Kahlo as someone mainly defined by her relationship with Diego Rivera and her physical pain. I mean she seems like a strong, passionate woman, but it's a little disappointing it was more about her suffering and pretty much left out all of her political ideas and her as a political activist in general.

    Woah, what a movie. I can't believe Frida is only remembered for her self-portraits and her monobrow. That woman was a Mexican queer communist with a disability who fought for what she loved in an oppressive and repressive political and social climate despite her limitations.

    I knew next to nil about Frida Kahlo's life, and this film really brought her to life for me. What an interesting character. (Among other things, she pulled Trotsky and Josephine Baker; if that isn't badass I don't know what is).

    Salma Hayek was fantastic, made me forget she was acting. The storyline could have been stronger, but I was still very much engaged throughout the film. This may be a testament to the excellent performances of all the actors.…

    Had to rewatch it to help write my essay. I loved this even more the second time.

    Captivating look at the pain and joy of the life of artist Frida Kahlo. The surrealist elements of the film beautifully capture the spirit of the artist's work. Great performances and wonderfully shot.

    I've been wanting to see this film for awhile, and I was excited to see that it was streaming on Netflix. A lot of times, accessibility determines what is being watched in my house.

    I was glad to see that my anticipation was not undeserved. Frida tells the story of famous modern artist Frida Kahlo. I have always been a fan of her art, but never knew much about her life. Like most successful people, life was not easy for…

    Salma Hayek's delicious tits.

    I was worried the film was going to try and sell me a fake feminist with a tediously symbolic monobrow, but Frida won me over in the end as a drunken crippled shagg-piece that did some nice pictures.

    This had me on Wikipedia afterwards, which made me realise they could have done better. A sex scene with Frida's polio leg in clear display would have been a nice addition, for example. At least it was fun…

    I watched this because I'm currently taking a class with one of the screenwriters. Fortunately, the script was one of the best parts of this production, alongside Taymor's stunning direction and Hayek's fierce performance. I'm not typically one to enjoy the general biopic, and although this one acted as a portrait of a marriage just as much as a portrait of an artist, I just wasn't that interested in Kahlo's love life.
