  • Critic Reviews of "Genius"

    Globe and Mail
    June 17, 2016

    Not nearly as smart as it should be.

    Detroit News
    June 17, 2016

    "Genius" deals with the creative ego, its trappings and the need everyone has for an editor.

    Philadelphia Inquirer
    June 17, 2016

    Well-written, gorgeously shot, and expertly edited, the film is also an exasperating exercise in good intentions gone wrong.

    Chicago Sun-Times
    June 16, 2016

    Perhaps the best advertisement for Genius -- not only did it make me want to revisit Berg's book, it had me lining up the Wolfe, Fitzgerald and Hemingway on the e-book runway.

    Toronto Star
    June 16, 2016

    Firth and Law falter with their characters' awkward bromance: the former a fatherly cipher (will he ever take off that fedora?); the latter a clatter of drunken scribe clichƩs.

    Boston Globe
    June 16, 2016

    An intriguing study of the personalities and torturous process behind some of the early 20th century's great writing.

    San Diego Gay & Lesbian News
    March 15, 2017

    If you're looking for a spectacular visual experience, this isn't it. But if you're interested in writers and editors, this film is for you.

    Ozus' World Movie Reviews
    January 27, 2017

    Unimaginative literary biopic.

    The National (UAE)
    December 20, 2016

    Any film that takes literature this seriously deserves some credit.

    El Pais (Spain)
    December 19, 2016

    A film about literature that is neither literary nor cinematic and it gives the impression that wants to get away from the solemn to reach the popular, but ends up being superficial. [Full review in Spanish]

    El antepenĆŗltimo mohicano
    December 13, 2016

    A valuable film because of its story and its attractive cultural background, than by its (irregular) artistic results, which owes its most exciting moments to Colin Firth. [Full review in Spanish]

    El Mundo (Spain)
    December 08, 2016

    The problem of the film is that the promised magnetism of the story it's hardly found in the screen. [Full review in Spanish]
