    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.

    Sure it's not perfect but it's got style! Terrific and imaginative sequences and sets bring to life Frida Kahlo's world and many of her popular paintings play cameos. Romantic and thought provoking for fans of her work.

    This film, based on the extensive biography by Hayden Herrera is PERFECT. Hayek is so convincing as Kahlo. The film is passionate, colorful and crazy just like the characters in her life!

    I was forced to watch the film on a mac titanium laptop which meant the image skipped every now and then - which really bothered me until I just threw up my hands and accepted my fate.

    The film itself as a narrative is nothing spectacular. Nor are any of the performances. Out of Salma Hayek, Geoffrey Rush and Alfred Molina, only Molina seems to really separate from the others. Having said that, though - I can't imagine a better…

    A truly majestic and very stylish film from Julie Taymor that features an incredible performance from Salma Hayek as the titular artist as it's told with such flair as it's expressed through the art of Frida Kahlo.
