“Russell, as I said, made a lot of really great movies. His heart is always in the right place… Somehow this huge carnival of ideas has escaped him” – Showbiz 411.
“A wildly exaggerated plea to ‘protect goodness’ that sounds as far-fetched and hollow as you might expect from someone with such a pronounced reputation for killing himself” – IndieWire.
“Even though this eccentric ensemble boasts clever ideas and a smorgasbord of unexpected performances, ‘Amsterdam’ equals less than the sum of its parts” – Variety.
“An epic fable, sprawling and ambitious, is like a whimsical fairy tale about the lure of creeping authoritarianism and the thwarting of a fascist plot against America” – The Playlist.
The film arrives in Brazilian cinemas in October 06, 2022.
