Critic Reviews for The Passion of Ayn Rand
Okay, I'll say it: The Passion of Ayn Rand is as delicious as it is dumbfounding, as mirthful as it is misbegotten.
Audience Reviews for The Passion of Ayn Rand
Dull melodrama. It doesn't really praise Rand, but the movie never finds a way to effectively criticize her ideas either. Yes she and her acolytes are all morally bankrupt hypocrites but their actual ideas are so much worse.
I was interested in Ayn Rand but I did NOT like this movie. It was really boring and tried to be all of these different things.
The best performance of Julie Delpy's I've seen to date. Story is awkwardly paced and paints Ayn in a crazy light. Which I guess was true but Helen Mirren didn't really bring ANY redeeming quality out.
