Critic Reviews of "Modigliani"Time OutAugust 16, 2007
Instead of trying to provide insight into this genius's debilitating madness, Davis prefers to wallow in incoherent and clichéd misery, punctuated by poetically oblique imagery.New York ObserverJuly 07, 2005
A film of vitality, with imagery as haunting and romantic as it is intense.Newark Star-LedgerJuly 01, 2005
Modigliani is slow, shamefully cliched and disjointed as a cubist portrait.New York PostJuly 01, 2005
Thanks to writer-director Mick Davis, the film, like its subject, dies young.New York Daily NewsJuly 01, 2005
It's hard to take this oddball movie seriously, right down to the undisguised streetwise-American accent of Andy Garcia as the Italian Jew Amedeo Modigliani.New York TimesJune 30, 2005
The best and maybe the only use to be made of the catastrophic screen biography Modigliani is to serve as a textbook outline of how not to film the life of a legendary artist.Boston PhoenixOctober 29, 2005
Just another artistic sacrifice to life's ironies, cruelties, and bad filmmakers.New TimesJuly 07, 2005
No one expected a documentary, but serious art-history students may feel let down.TV GuideJuly 01, 2005
The real-life Modigliani did indeed live a short, tragic life, but this factually inaccurate, plodding film makes it feel twice as long.Slant MagazineJune 28, 2005
It ain't pretty but you have a choisa: See Modigliani or rent Derek Jarman's Caravaggio instead.Los Angeles Daily NewsMay 13, 2005
Director Mick Davis shows little if any imagination in presenting the troubled genius or the remarkable Montparnasse art scene of the World War I era, and that's the real bummer.Filmcritic.comMay 11, 2005
Modigliani's problems lie in its contentment with superficial clichés
