Critic Reviews for Miss Marx

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7)

Garai... dominates practically every scene.

September 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's watchable, stately, sometimes ludicrous and - in sporadic doses - audacious. Revolutionary, however, it isn't.

September 5, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Nicchiarelli's latest is guilty of the cardinal sin of the genre: boxing an indelible real-life star into movie-ready constraints.

September 5, 2020 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Susanna Nichiarelli's film is as lumberingly sombre as these things tend to get, and even an alert, inquisitive lead performance from Romola Garai can't quite put a spring in its step.

September 5, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

While Nicchiarelli has chosen to enliven her stony material with a spirit of punk rock rebellion most literally evident in a snarlingly anachronistic song score, the film never quite shakes its dourness.

Nicchiarelli gets what she wanted, but something essential has been lost along the way.
