Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
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.

Washington Post - Stephen Hunter
Endlessly interesting. It's about people who thought ideas and art mattered, which makes it a rarity today.
70
Village Voice - J. Hoberman
Swank and splashy as it is, Frida leaves the lurking suspicion that Taymor might have preferred to stage her pageant as a puppet show.
70
Slate - David Edelstein
If you want rich folk-art colors, brainy spectacle, and breezy soap opera, then Frida is the biopic for you.
67
Austin Chronicle - Marc Savlov
As directed by Taymor, it's a competent and nicely designed biopic that for all of the director's attempts to link surrealist film imagery with Hayek's depiction of Kahlo somehow manages to be generally lackluster.
