Critic Reviews of "Underground (1995)"New York Daily NewsSeptember 23, 2014
Delirious in its excess, but never less than ferociously intelligent and operatically emotional, Underground represents one of those rare, exhilarating moments when an outsize artistic vision is fueled by an apparently unlimited budget. Not to be missed.Chicago ReaderSeptember 23, 2014
A triumph of mise en scene mated to a comic vision that keeps topping its own hyperbole.Seattle TimesSeptember 23, 2014
A rich, vibrant, visually spectacular survey of the changes the place has gone through during the past 50 years.Chicago TribuneSeptember 23, 2014
Kusturica takes us from wacky farce to harrowing grief to lyrical fantasy to bloody horror. To ignore any side of Underground is to do it injustice.AV ClubSeptember 23, 2014
Underground is a bizarre, often repellent anti-war parable that takes forever to state the obvious but hits some scattered high notes on the way.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Emir Kusturica's epic black comedy about Yugoslavia from 1941 to 1992 is a three-hour steamroller circus that leaves the viewer dazed and exhausted, but mightily impressed.Times (UK)March 24, 2016
Acknowledged as the Bosnian director Emir Kusturica's masterpiece, Underground is a hallucinogenic comic romp through Yugoslavia's troubled history over 50 years.Empire MagazineJune 18, 2012
On balance, Kusturica is sturdier on style than substance.F5 (Wichita, KS)June 29, 2004
Brilliant, outrageous filmmaking. Underground is touching, hilarious, and new.Filmcritic.comMay 23, 2004
Kusturica creates memorable characters and puts them in increasingly surreal scenarios, but he's awfully long-winded in the storytelling. Trim an hour off this beast and you've got a masterpiece.Combustible CelluloidApril 19, 2004
It's an admirable, interesting wartime satire, but it has a vaguely distasteful feel that makes its 167 minutes a difficult slog.Total FilmJanuary 21, 2004
Whether you'll share the filmmaker's indulgence of his larger-than-life characters is questionable, but the Fellini-esque wedding feast on a floating island makes for a memorable closing sequence.
