    Eyes Do Not Want to Close at All Times, or, Perhaps One Day Rome Will Allow Herself to Choose in Her Turn

    ★★★★★

    Unlike anything I've really ever seen. Has the feel of mid-period Godard, but even more delightfully obtuse. Leans fully into the artifice of the medium, turning this period piece into a dialogue spanning centuries. Really a special film.

    ★★★½

    Perfectly middle of the road. Performances are uniformly great (Clemons and Lane are scene stealing) but the filmmaking is serviceable at best. Lacks real style, but not spirit. Simple but energetic. Fits the film. A small but engrossing picture.

    ★★★★½

    Entertaining, sexy, and utterly gorgeous, the film may be all eye candy, but it's some of the sweetest and most charming candy one could consume. If this movie had a face I'd kiss it. (A-)

    Literally thought it was impossible for films to be this dumb, this loud, this deadening. And I saw Drive Angry 3D.
