Rolling Stone "...Moments of chilling terror..." 09/30/1999 p.100
Total Film "...Koepp's film is much more of a Hitchcock shocker than an out-and-out spook flick..." 06/01/2000 p.86
Film Comment "...STIR OF ECHOES stays assuredly character-driven and admirably low-key in its shock effects..." 09/01/1999 p.78
Premiere "...Thoroughly unnerving....Stark and harrowing..." - 3 out of 5 Stars 03/01/2000 p.95
Box Office "...With strong performances, intriguing and sparingly used special effect and some highly original concepts....Rivetingly haunting..." 09/01/1999 p.138
USA Today "...The economical, fast-paced style and creepy mood are reminiscent of THE TWILIGHT ZONE -- for good reason....David Koepp's thriller matches the eeriest moments of the classic TV series..." 09/10/1999 p.12E

Reviews
ReviewSource The Hollywood Reporter
Review Understand that Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Biutiful" has a strong, linear narrative drive. Nevertheless, and most of all, it's a gorgeous, melancholy tone poem about love, fatherhood and guilt. Some scenes are absolutely wrenching to behold. Others hit home with a punch to the solar plexus. Spain -- and Barcelona to be specific -- has beckoned forth the wistful poet in the Mexican-born filmmaker. His response to this summons is a film that, while about death, is teeming with life in all its tangled messiness...Javier Bardem, delivers a knockout performance as a hero whose last days are detailed with Joycean elan, filled with ambiguity, contradictions and lyricism."Biutiful" will require several viewings for the film to yield a complete portrait of its mysterious, flawed hero. Because for all the complexity of his previous films, with fractured, multiple narratives and an array of international characters, this in many ways is Inarritu's most intricate study yet of the human condition.
