Anthony Lane on 'Marie Antionette'

Posted By on Mon, Oct 16, 2006 at 6:43 AM

Writes the New Yorker film critic,

It is hard to hate the film, whose silly fizz makes it simpler and less creepy than her earlier projects. If it does drop larger hints, they have less to do with the vanished culture of Versailles than with the fretful stasis of our own. The movie’s approach to the world beyond, to everything that one doesn’t know or wouldn’t care to buy, is like the look on Kirsten Dunst’s face: a beautiful blankness, forever on the brink of drifting, with a smile, into sleep.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
